Celtic legend Scott Brown led Fleetwood Town to a historic FA Cup upset against Queens Park Rangers - ensuring the Cods are in the fourth round for the first time ever.

Brown, whose side currently sit 14th in English League One, came back from 1-0 down to defeat 12th-placed Championship side QPR 2-1 thanks to goals from Aristote Nsiala and Promise Omochere.

QPR had taken the lead through Sam Field before the comeback, with Brown's side now into the pot where teams such as Premier League giants Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur lie in wait as does his old Parkhead manager Brendan Rodgers' Leicester City.

"This is what we've been wanting all season," Brown told Fleetwood Town's media channels after the game. "That intensity, that performance... and you can't just do that against a Championship side and then drop off the face of the world, we need that week in, week out.

"So now for us, going forward, it's what we expect. We want that. We've been playing some great football at home but just not been able to kill the game off.ย 

"We go 1-0 up then lose a late goal or end up getting beat 2-1 so going forward we need to make sure we have that mentality, that belief in each other and knowing we can play good football but we can do the battle as well.

"I'm so proud of the lads today. To have our name in the draw for the fourth round for the first time in the club's history is exceptional."

The draw for the fourth round takes place on Sunday ahead of the tie between Manchester City and Chelsea.
