Route to the Final

Cardiff City, defeated finalists just two years earlier, started their campaign at home to Aston Villa. After a 21 win, they continued northwards to play Darlington.

Following a 20 away win, they faced their sternest test yet, an away game to last year's champions Bolton. Following a shock 20 away win, Cardiff were pitted away again against Chelsea. After a drab 00 at Stamford Bridge, Cardiff won the replay 32 at home. In the semi-finals Cardiff were drawn against Reading at Molineux Stadium. However, Reading were superbly edged out 30.

Arsenal started their tournament away to the 1925 champions, Sheffield United. Following a 32 victory, Arsenal faced an away match against Port Vale, who had won 51 in the previous round. After a 22 draw, Arsenal managed to win the replay 10. From here on, Arsenal did not have to leave London at all in the competition. A home tie against Liverpool was resoundingly won 20, and in the Sixth Round the Gunners brushed Wolves aside 21.

The Semi-final was against Southampton, who had also fallen at the Semi Finals in 1925. The game was played at Stamford Bridge and Arsenal won 21, with goals from Hulme and Buchan, with Southampton's reply coming from Rawlings. Southampton were also denied two penalty appeals for fouls by Horace Cope.
