While it's probably not entirely cool to be swindling lower league teams out of much-needed matchday revenue, one Manchester United fan showed impressive levels of gumption in his quest to watch last night's FA Cup fifth rounder against Shrewsbury on the cheap.

Following on fromChris Smalling's opener, Juan Mata put the away side 2-0 up shortly before the break with a slightly controversial free-kick controversial because the three men in United's 'dummy wall' appeared to be several fathoms offside as they attempted to obstruct the view of goalkeeper Jayson Leutwiler.
