Match Summary County beat Terriers in round four, but a record crowd sits back after Phillips’ tap in. Harper , then Carr from close range, stand the game on its head, but Phillips levels. In extra-time Comley misses a sitter, Barlow has a pen saved after a handball. Froggatt spares Pompey blushes.
