Manchester United survived a scare against third tier Preston North End to reach the FA Cup quarterfinals with a hard-fought 3-1 win at Deepdale Monday.Ander Herrera's fortuitous strike leveled the scores just after the hour mark before Marouane Fellaini put United ahead after 72 minutes.Fellaini who had been deployed in an advanced midfield role moved further forward and it paid dividends as United took the lead.The Belgian saw his header from Valencia's cross blocked by Stuckmann but the North End goalkeeper was powerless to prevent Fellaini from sweeping the loose ball home from inside the six yard box.Stuckmann came racing out of his goal in an attempt to reach a through ball but Rooney got there before him and went down under the challenge.The goalkeeper was booked and his next action was to pick the ball out of the net after Rooney lashed home the penalty.
