Brentford finally ended Bradford City's incredible cup run as the Bees produced a ruthless performance in extra-time to beat their League Two opponents 4-2 at Griffin Park.
Bradford went into the game having played ten cup ties this season without losing a single one - they are already through to the semi-finals of the League Cup, having beaten Arsenal on the way, and have reached the area semi-finals of the Football League Trophy, too.
And they arrived at Griffin Park aiming to earn a trip to Southend United in the Third Round.
It looked as though they could do it too - going 1-0 and 2-1 up before being blown away by Uwe Rosler's side once Clayton Donaldson and Harry Forrester came off the bench.
Both those players scored in extra-time but Brentford, led in midfield by the impressive Jonathan Douglas, had to work hard for their victory.
A mistake by centre-back Leon Legge allowed Bradford to go ahead after 34 minutes, with Kyel Reid eventually drilling home a low shot.
The Bees responded quickl and levelled on the stroke of half-time when Marcello Trotta, on loan from Fulham, was brought down by Carl McHugh - and took the penalty himself to make it 1-1 before the break. It was the first goal of his Brentford career.
In the second half Brentford again dominated possession but struggled to find a breakthrough, forcing Rosler to bring on star men Forrester and Donaldson.
It almost worked as Shaleum Logan rattled the bar soon after; but Bradford kept battling away and could have taken the lead themselves with a shot narrowly wide form Ricky Ravenhill.
The visitors did go ahead four minutes into extra-time when referee Graham Scott saw a push in the box and former Brentford striker Alan Connell scored from the spot to make it 2-1.
But the Bees replied through Trotta once more - this time thumping home from close range after good work by Forrester - and went ahead when Donaldson turned on a Forrester pass for 3-2.
All that was left was for crowd favourite Forrester to get on the scoresheet - and he did, with an excellent finish from a Trotta pass.
Finally Bradford, for the first time since January, had been put the sword in a cup tie.
Elsewhere, Rotherham United romped to victory at Notts County with an outstanding performance in a 3-0 victory.
Goals from Ben Pringle, Mark Bardley and Daniel Nardiello, all in the first half, effectively wrapped up victory - especially as the home team had Damion Stewart sent off after only 30 minutes. Rotherham now head to Aldershot in the next round.
At Barrow, Kieran Charnock put Macclesfield ahead but Richie Baker equalised in a match that had previously been postponed because of a frozen pitch. The teams now face a replay - the winner will play Cardiff at home.
It was also a tight affair in the match between Oxford United and Accrington - before James Constable scored after 66 minutes to win it for the home side. Peter Leven then made sure to put Oxford in the Third Round, where they take on Sheffield United at home.
