Stephane Sessegnon's extra-time strike secured a 2-1 win over Middlesbrough as Sunderland booked an FA Cup fifth-round clash with Arsenal in dramatic style.

The Benin international blasted home a 112th-minute winner to send the Barclays Premier League side through after being pushed all the way by their npower Championship neighbours.

Jack Colback had given the visitors the upper hand in the fourth-round replay with a fine 42nd-minute strike, but Lukas Jutkiewicz's first goal for Boro ensured an extra 30 minutes was required.
