South and East Yorkshire will face off at Wembley after Sheffield United and Hull City were paired together for the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

The Blades turned in a brilliant second half display at Bramall Lane to see off Championship side Charlton, who had already put Sheffield Wednesday to the sword in the last round, with United becoming the lowest ranked team to make the last four since Wycombe Wanderers booked their place 13 years ago.

Quickfire goals from Ryan Flynn and John Brayford sealed United’s Wembley date, with Hull now lying in wait after their comfortable 3-0 victory over Sunderland at the KC Stadium.

In the other semi-final Arsenal, 4-1 conquerors of Everton on Saturday will take on Wigan Athletic who, like last season’s final, sensationally stunned Manchester City by winning 2-1 at the Etihad.

Ties will be played 12 and 13 April
