Sunderland may have let a one-goal lead slip at Walsall - but the 1-1 draw at the Banks's Stadium means the Black Cats have now gone fifteen games unbeaten in all competitions.
Jack Ross' side took a first-half lead courtesy of Aiden McGeady's 39th-minute opener, before Andy Cook equalised for the hosts after the break.
And while some fans weren't so keen about the thought of a second-round replay on Tuesday December 11, most supporters were happy to still be in the competition.
Here's how some fans reacted on social media:
@SaintAnthonysFC: "Unlucky lads...take em back to @StadiumOfLight and win!"
@hooolio33: "Sunderland genuinely don’t get beat anymore which is quite canny I think #SAFC"
@_dgallagher99: "Well that was the last thing we needed at least we are still in the hat for Monday’s draw. Hopefully we’ll get the job done in the replay"
@Parsden: "Disappointing draw but at least we're in the hat #safc"
@peterjames73: "Yes, a replay isn’t ideal and it adds to what is already a busy schedule. It seems some fans would rather have lost instead of being in the third round draw. Way I see it, I want Sunderland to win every game no matter what competition it is - even if it adds more games. #safc"
@ScottAvalanche: "so a replay at home then? sounds excellent."
@DanielJenks89: "I don’t mind having replays, but personally I think these extra games should go straight to penalties just like in the League Cup #safc"
@RokerReport: "Fairly ordinary performance. Didn’t do anything wrong but I was actually more impressed with Mumba’s impact when he came on."
@Rob58Mason: "The team selection today was very poor. Why was Ovedio playing on the wing with Gooch and McGeady getting in each other’s way on the other wing? Poor defending to make it 1-1 Anyway in third round draw. "
