Reaction pictures and analysis in The Argus on Monday


That's it. Full-time here. Hastings wanted to give it and go and they did. They can be proud of their performance. Thanks for joining me. I'm off to do some interviews now


Crowd is 12,579 including 1068 away fans. Shame it was not 1066


MILLER makes it 4-1 with five minutes remaining with a low shot into the bottom corner


Hastings have used their third sub now, Okojie joining Ellis and Manning on the pitch


3-1 69 mins. Goal of the game so far and an immediate response from Hastings as GOLDBERG cracks one into the top corner from 25 yards


3-0 68 mins. Shot from ZEMMAMA from 20 yards takes a deflection to beat O'Brien


O'Brien to the rescue for Hastings again, this time saving from Zemmama


60 mins, Carey tries a shot from 20 yards and his effort is touched on to a post by keeper Steele and behind for a corner from which Jirbandey's header is blocked


49 mins O'Brien makes a fine save with his feet as Halliday seemed set to score a third


2-0 to Boro on 47 minutes as a Luke Williams corner from the left finds its way across the penalty area unchallenged for HALLIDAY to sweep home from close range


Half-time: Hastings 1-0 down but they finished the half pretty well with a couple of chances. Then right on half-time O'Brien makes a fine save to keep it 1-0 and keep them in the game


O'Brien makes a fine save low down from Miller at the expense of a corner.


Camara's cross-shot is almost steered into his own net by Halliday but keeper Steele saves one-handed at the expense of a corner


First chance for Hastings as Ray nods down a Carey free-kick and Crellin's on-target shot is blocked for a corner


Miller skips clear of the Hastings defence after Whitehead slipped by Ray made a superb recovery tackle


Miller penalised for a foul as he was poised to shoot from close range 29 mins


1-0 to Boro. Thomson lays off a short ball to ZEMMAMA whose excellent strike from 20 yards finds the top corner past an outstretched O'Brien


Penalty to Boro for a foul on Miller but Miller's weak spot-kick is comfortably saved by O'Brien low to his right


Best chance yet for Boro on 12 mins as Miller headed over top from a Luke Williams corner


Boro seeing a lot of the ball but not Hastings are not really under great pressure in the opening minutes


Ishmael Miller looks a threat for Boro. One shot over the top already


Teams are on the pitch. A tremendous reception from Hastings fans


Couple of minutes from kick-off here ... waiting for the teams to come out


For any followers we are subject to a small delay in reporting. You can also follow me @HowardGriggs


For the record Hastings have made five changes from the midweek draw with Lewes with O'Brien, Jirbandey, Vickers, Carey, Camara in for Howard, Manning, Ellis, Okojie and Daly


Boro have made four changes from the side that lost to Derby on New Year's Day, three of which were forced upon them with Woodgate and Leadbitter out while McDonald is only fit enough to be on the bench


So Albion are through. Can Hastings and Crawley join them and make it three Sussex sides in the fourth round?


Zac Attwood failed a fitness test for Hastings so Bailo Camara starts, Danny Ellis on the bench with Tom Vickers starting


Hastings team: O'Brien; Cox, Ray, Jirbandey, Whitehead; Dixon, Crellin, Vickers, Carey; Camara, Goldberg. Subs: Ellis, Okojie, Manning, Daly, Richardson, Abbott, Howard.


Middlesbrough team: Steele; Parnaby, Halliday, R.Williams, Bailey;  Smallwood Thomson, Zemmama; Miller, L.Williams, Reach. Subs: Leutwiler, Jutkiewicz, Jones, McDonald, Morris, Burgess, Haroun.


Warm reception from the Hastings fans for Middlesbrough. Not! A friendly chorus of boos as they ran on to the pitch. Away fans outnumber home at present with 40 minutes to kick off


Hastings currently have four goalkeepers on the pitch warming up. A unique game plan from Sean Ray?


Hastings fans are gathering in their seats behind the goal to my right.  Awaiting team news at the moment
