The two goal heros celebrate
Rotherham finally played their 3rd round tie at Millmoor tonight against Southampton and beat them 2-1 with goals from Ritchie Barker and Mullin but it was Mullin's goal in the second half that proved to be the winner.

It put Rotherham two up at the time but Southampton came back to snatch one goal but the Millers were able to hang on earn themselves a home tie against Crewe Alexandra in Round Four. It also ensures that there will now be a minimum of five clubs from outside the Premiership in the Fifth Round.

It is John's first FA Cup goal for two seasons since he scored Burnley's second in a 2-0 win over his current club Rotherham at the Turf in the 2nd round, a win that set up the tie at Pride Park against Derby County.

There is just one tie to be decided now and the revised draw is:

John Mullin scoring the winner
Preston North End v Sheffield United
Rotherham United v Crewe Alexandra
Charlton Athletic v Walsall
Tranmere Rovers v Cardiff City
Gillingham v Bristol Rovers
York City v Fulham
Darlington or Peterborough United v Newcastle United
Tottenham Hotspur v Bolton Wanderers
Chelsea v West Ham United
Millwall v Blackburn Rovers
Cheltenham Town v Burnley
Everton v Leyton Orient
West Bromwich Albion v Leicester City
Middlesbrough v Manchester United
Ipswich Town v Manchester City
Arsenal v Liverpool
