A floodlit Deepdale provided the perfect setting for a frenetic cup clash on Monday evening, as Manchester United dug deep to secure a 3-1 win and safe passage to the FA Cup quarter-finals.
With cup fever well and truly gripping the town of Preston, both sets of supporters were out to spur their respective teams on, making for a cauldron of noise inside the ground. Further excitement in the stands was stirred up by the events on the pitch, particularly in the second half and, as ever, club photographers John and Matt Peters plus their counterparts at Getty Images were there to capture the action.
Our match gallery contains some great images including an atmospheric shot of United goalkeeper David De Gea, caught in the mist of a flare set off by the home support, as well as all of the Reds' celebration photos.
