As it happened

  1. 2248: 

    Ten games, 41 goals, a non-league side through to the last 32, the holders scraping through in extra-time. That's the sort of thing we were hoping for at the start of the evening.

    There is only one game tomorrow, but Manchester City, the form side in the country, against a dogged and determined Blackburn side? It was entertaining the first time around. You won't want to miss the sequel.

    See you there.

  2. 2239: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Peterborough 2-3 Kidderminster

    More from Kidderminster boss Andy Thorn on matchwinner Joe Lolley, who is expected to complete a move to Huddersfield this week: "It was a superb strike. He had to do it because he gave the ball away for the penalty and if he had been near me I would have jumped on him.

    "He is a fantastic young talent, the club has been very good for him and he has been very good for them. We have all our ducks in a row if he does go."

  3. 2236: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Peterborough 2-3 Kidderminster
    Peterborough 2-3 Kidderminster

    Kidderminster boss Andy Thorn was not shy of an FA Cup upset in his playing days, helping Wimbledon to a historic 1988 final win against Liverpool and being part of the Crystal Palace side which beat the Reds in the 1990 semi-final.

    Now he is embarrassing bigger clubs as a manager after his non-league side beat League One hosts Peterborough.

    "We worked extremely hard and I thought the players were superb the way they took the game plan onboard," says the ex-Coventry boss. "When I looked into the players eyes they were ready and they deserve all the credit they will get."

  4. 2232: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Fulham 3-0 Norwich
    Rene Meulensteen

    Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen: "Our desire has never been in question but that desire and urgency has mainly been in going forward and it's cost us at times, particularly defending set-plays and counter-attacks.

    "Today we made sure we were in good shape, working hard to get back into that shape and making it difficult.

    "It's a good feeling after the unpleasant result against Sunderland."

  5. 2228: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Sheffield Wednesday 4-1 Macclesfield

    Sheffield Wednesday caretaker Stuart Gray on his chances of being awarded the job permanently: "Nothing has been decided - I can only control what we do on the pitch. We're winning games and that's all I can do. It's the chairman's decision."

  6. 2227: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Bournemouth 4-1 Burton
    Eddie Howe

    Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe: "The Liverpool game is one we can look forward to and enjoy but until then we have to keep our minds on the league."

  7. 2226: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Sheffield Wednesday 4-1 Macclesfield
    Stuart Gray

    Sheffield Wednesday caretaker boss Stuart Gray: "Tonight was very much like the first game - we went 1-0 up early and had chance after chance. But we couldn't get a second goal. Credit to Macclesfield for getting back into the match, but we went up another gear and showed our class."

  8. 2225: 
    MK Dons 1-3 Wigan

    BBC Sport's Chris Osborne at Stadium MK: "A late flurry from MK Dons, but Nick Powell had already caused the damage, swinging off the bench like a wrecking ball aimed directly at MK's FA Cup upset hopes. I wonder if David Moyes managed to cast an eye over his teenager's star performance here tonight?"

  9. 2224: 

    Let's all spare a moment for Conference side Hyde.

    Tonight they beat Welling 2-0 to chalk up their very first league win of the season. At the 28th attempt. Just another 19 points to make their way back to safety.

    Lewis Starks: As much as it is FA Cup night... can I have a shout out to my beloved Hyde United who finally won a Conference game tonight!

  11. 2216: 
    FULL-TIME- MK Dons 1-3 Wigan

    All over at Stadium MK as holders Wigan survive a scare to advance to the fourth round. For a long time it looked as though the Latics would become only the second defending champions to crash out in third round since 1998. But their - and particularly substitute Nick Powell's - quality shone through to avoid any embarrassment.

  12. 2215: 
    MK Dons 1-3 Wigan

    All of a sudden MK Dons crank up the pressure as they attempt to set up a barnstorming finish. Goalkeeper David Martin storms forward for a corner to whip the home crowd into a frenzy, but gets nowhere near the delivery. Then he has to sprint back quicker than Usain Bolt (OK, he wasn't that quick) to deny Wigan nicking a fourth on the counter.

  13. 2212: 
    MK Dons 1-3 Wigan

    Almost a foothold back in the tie for MK Dons. Home midfielder Stephen Gleeson unleashes a thunderbolt which stings the palms of Ali Al Habsi, who recovers at the second attempt.

  14. 2210: 
    MK Dons 1-3 Wigan

    MK Dons aren't keen to lie down and have their bellies tickled by those Wigan dogs of war. The weary home side muster some energy to mount an attack but they are unable to find a lifeline as a chance goes begging.

  15. 2208: 
    MK Dons 1-3 Wigan

    BBC Sport's Chris Osborne at Stadium MK: "What was brewing up to be a special night as been well and truly pooped by Nick Powell. The teenager, on loan from Manchester United, has pretty much single handily pulled Wigan back from the brink."

  16. 2204: 
    Peterborough 2-3 Kidderminster

    The report on Kidderminster's official website reflects the glee of a bona-fide giantkilling.

    The final paragraph is as follows:

    "But then there was Joe Lolley. What a boy. There didn't even seem to be that much 'on' for him as he took the ball from distance and on the angle but the driven finish was so accurate that it beat Olejnik all ends up and fizzed into the back of the net. Madness!"

    Javan Copley: Man United need to bring Powell home and give him a run before someone else does.

    Matt Graham: Quite looking forward to seeing if Powell gets a chance with the first team next year at United.

    Michael Garner: This round of #FACup replays has definitely been an exciting and unpredictable affair so far. Imagine what the next round holds!

  18. 2202: 
    KICK-OFF- MK Dons 1-3 Wigan

    No messing about at Stadium MK as the second period of extra-time kicks off. No time for half-time oranges - just a few words of wisdom from respective managers Karl Robinson and Uwe Rosler.

  19. 2159: 
    HALF-TIME- MK Dons 1-3 Wigan
    Ali Al Habsi

    Two goals in the first 15 minutes of extra time mean holders Wigan are just another quarter of an hour away from reaching the fourth round. There, they will face Crystal Palace, who they traded Premier League places with in May.

  20. 2158: 

    Opta Joe: 5 - Fulham have won five successive home games against Norwich City (all competitions), scoring 18 goals and conceding just once. Ruthless.

  21. 2158: 

    Stevenage hold on to beat Swindon 2-1 and close the gap between them and 23rd place Bristol City to just a point and at the other end of the table Walsall move into the top six with a 1-0 win over Oldham Athletic.

  22. 2158: 

    These are the FA Cup fourth round ties that have been firmed up by tonight's events:

    Sunderland v Kidderminster

    Port Vale v Brighton

    Nottingham Forest v Preston

    Rochdale v Sheffield Wednesday

    Blackburn or Manchester City v Watford

    Bournemouth v Liverpool

    Birmingham v Swansea

    Sheffield United v Fulham

    And whether Wigan or MK Dons will play Crystal Palace is still, in theory, to be decided.

  23. 2157: 
    GOAL- MK Dons 1-3 Wigan - Marc-Antoine Fortune

    Holders Wigan are all but in the next round of the FA Cup. Latics forward Marc-Antoine Fortune adds a third as the away side's quality begins to shine through.

  24. 2157: 
    CLOSE!- MK Dons 1-2 Wigan

    Glorious chance for Jordi Gomez to wrap things up in Buckinghamshire. The Spanish substitute seems almost surprised to be kept onside by a tiring MK Dons backline - and fluff his lines by scooping past the post.

  25. 2155: 
    MK Dons 1-2 Wigan

    Wigan boss Uwe Rosler decided to leave a few of his experienced heads on the bench, only to call on Emmerson Boyce and Jordi Gomez - plus talented England Under-21 star Nick Powell - during the second half. It has worked superbly, although they almost concede an equaliser before keeper Ali Al Habsi comes to the rescue.

  26. 2152: 
    Ravel Morrison

    Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen has confirmed that, as the rumours have suggested, his club have made an unsuccessful bid for West Ham midfielder Ravel Morrison.

    "It's been knocked back and we move on," he told BT Sport.

    Meulensteen worked with Ravel Morrison when both were at Manchester United.

  27. 2148: 
    FULL-TIME- Charlton 2-2 Oxford

    Oxford and Charlton head for a replay. Tonight's meeting was the first staging of their third-round tie.

  28. 2145: 
    GOAL- MK Dons 1-2 Wigan - Nick Powell (92 mins)

    Wigan's dreams of retaining the FA Cup - however slim - are not over. Within 77 seconds of the beginning of extra-time, Manchester United loanee Nick Powell surges through the home defence before clipping into the onion bag. That's his second of the night.

  29. 2144: 
    FULL-TIME- Preston 3-2 Ipswich

    Joe Garner's hat-trick fires Preston into the fourth round where they will face a trip to Nottingham Forest, where Garner spent three years of his career between 2008 and 2011.

  30. 2144: 
    FULL-TIME- Watford 2-0 Bristol City

    Watford will be away to either Blackburn or Manchester City in the next round.

  31. 2143: 
    Peterborough 2-3 Kidderminster

    Boos from the home crowd are swiftly drowned out by the Kidderminster celebrations at London Road. The players leap around in a huddle on the pitch before going over to milk the acclaim of the 600 noisy away fans.

  32. 2142: 
    FULL-TIME- Birmingham 3-0 Bristol Rovers

    Birmingham will play Swansea at home in the next round.

    Phil Brown, BBC 5 live pundit at PeterboroughPeterborough 2-3 Kidderminster

    "That is what the FA Cup is all about, it is much deserved. They have stood up to everything Peterborough have thrown at them and more and they deserve to be in the the fourth round.

    "It has been a superbly disciplined performance and they have had to be on their game because Peterborough have thrown everything at them to try to find the equaliser and they have withstood all the pressure."

  34. 2141: 
    FULL-TIME- Plymouth 2-3 Port Vale

    Port Vale will play Brighton at home in the next round.

  35. 2140: 
    FULL-TIME- Peterborough 2-3 Kidderminster

    Cupset alert *sounds klaxon*!! Non-league Kidderminster dump out League One high-fliers Peterborough. Their reward? A trip to Premier League big boys Sunderland.

  36. 2139: 
    FULL-TIME- Sheffield Wednesday 4-1 Macclesfield

    Sheffield Wednesday play Rochdale away in the next round.

    From Aaron in Wrexham, via text: Surely the last thing Fulham want is a deep cup run? Premiership survival should be number one priority. An ageing squad and a fixture pile up will spell doom for them I think.

    Tim in Fulham, via text: To all the Norwich moaners, Fulham have put out a decent team and they are at home. Defeat wouldn't be that shameful. You're not Man Utd, have a bit more respect for the opposition.

    TWB a Kiddy fan, via text: If we hold on this is a massive result and a deserved send off for Joe Lolley who has given it all to the club and leaves on good terms.

  38. 2137: 
    FULL-TIME- Bournemouth 4-1 Burton

    Bournemouth set up a home tie against Liverpool.

  39. 2137: 

    We are heading for extra time at Milton Keynes where the Dons are holding Wigan. There are positive results everywhere else except at the Valley where Charlton and Oxford, currently 2-2, are meeting for the first time. It will head back to the Kassam.

  40. 2137: 
    GOAL- Sheffield Wednesday 4-1 Macclesfield - Miguel Llera

    Hillsborough is walking in a Wednesday wonderland as the Owls book their place in the fourth round. Spanish defender Miguel Llera nets their 10th home goal in three days for Stuart Gray's men - what more does the temporary boss need to do to get the job on a permanent basis??

  41. 2135: 
    FULL-TIME- Fulham 3-0 Norwich

    Fulham play Sheffield United away in the fourth round.

  42. 2135: 

    Deep into added time around the grounds...

  43. 2134: 
    GOAL- Birmingham 3-0 Bristol Rovers - Chris Burke (87 mins)

    Birmingham clinically finish off Rovers with a late blitz. Chris Burke grabs his second of the night to send the hosts through.

  44. 2133: 

    Stevenage double their lead in League One and now lead Swindon 2-0, Filipe Morais adding to Lucas Akins' opening goal. In the other game Walsall lead Oldham 1-0 thanks to Sam Mantom.

  45. 2132: 
    GOAL- Preston 3-2 Ipswich - Joe Garner hat-trick (88 mins)

    Yet more drama at Deepdale - my ticker can't take all this. The League One side nick a late lead as Joe Garner turns on a sixpence before firing in.

  46. 2132: 
    GOAL- Bournemouth 4-1 Burton - Brett Pitman pen (88 mins)

    Brett Pitman slots in from 12 yards to give the scoreline an unflattering aspect for Burton.

  47. 2132:  
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 live at HillsboroughSheffield Wednesday 3-1 Macclesfield

    "Jermaine Johnson has looked really sharp since he has come on and it was a really good finish after an excellent run. He has been very strong on the ball and Macclesfield just haven't been able to cope with him."

  48. 2130: 
    GOAL- Sheffield Wednesday 3-1 Macclesfield - Jermaine Johnson (85 mins)

    Macclesfield are finally undone as Jermaine Johnson finds the net and their fourth-round dream dies.

  49. 2129: 
    GOAL- Birmingham 2-0 Bristol Rovers - Chris Burke (85 mins)

    And that is surely a wrap at St Andrew's. A brilliant throughball from lanky Serbian striker Nikola Zigic is raced on to by Chris Burke, who coolly doubles the Blues' lead.

  50. 2129: 
    GOAL- Bournemouth 3-1 Burton - Ryan Fraser (86 mins)

    Ryan Fraser breaks forward and chips in and that could be Burton's resistance broken...

  51. 2126: 
    GOAL- Charlton 2-2 Oxford - Yann Kermorgant (82 mins)

    It has been a long way back for Charlton, but they eventually have parity as Yann Kermogant's shot beats an unsighted Ryan Clarke.

  52. 2126: 
    MISSED PENALTY- Plymouth 2-3 Port Vale

    Golden chance for Plymouth to haul themselves level - but it is wasted by striker Reuben Reid, who misses from 12 yards. Vale defender Chris Lines hauled down Argyle's Conor Hourihane and gets a second yellow card for his efforts. He is off. Can 10-man Vale hang on to their lead?

  53. 2125:  
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 live at Hillsborough

    "Wednesday have created a few openings tonight but they have not been able to really test the keeper but that was a superb run by Johnson, he rode a couple of challenges and played a really good ball out wide and it was a great finish by Maghoma. You just think about that chance Kay had and how things could have been so different - you just hope that miss hasn't cost his side."

    You can listen to full commentary on BBC Radio 5 live and online.

  54. 2124: 
    Birmingham 1-0 Bristol Rovers

    BBC Sport's Ged Scott at St Andrew's: "Blues goalscorer Paul Robinson has clearly developed a taste for scoring after rediscovering where the back of the net is.

    "He comes close to adding a killer second goal when, after a lung-bursting run on a Blues counter attack, the 35-year-old stalwart is denied only by a brilliant save from Rovers keeper Steve Mildenhall."

  55. 2124: 
    GOAL- MK Dons 1-1 Wigan - Nick Powell (79 mins)

    Sighs of relief in the away end. Nick Powell comes to their rescue, at least temporarily.

    Phil Brown, BBC 5 live pundit at PeterboroughPeterborough 2-3 Kidderminster

    "It was a rash challenge by the young lad there was no need to go to ground he could have jockeyed Assombalonga away from goal, it certainly looked like a penalty from here.

    "They [Kidderminster] played the ball short and it looked like there chance was gone but it's fallen to a lad who is on his way to the Football League and he has hit a super sweet shot, they just won't lie down."

  57. 2122: 
    GOAL- Plymouth 2-3 Port Vale - Jennison Myrie-Williams (75 mins)

    Port Vale lead for the first time. The match has swung back and forth but Jennison Myrie-Williams put the favourites in front.

  58. 2122: 
    GOAL- Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 Macclesfield - Jacques Maghoma (78 mins)

    After that excellent spell from the non-league visitors, Wednesday punish their profligacy as Jacques Maghoma skids a daisy cutter into the Macclesfield net. Huge sigh of relief around the cavernous Hillsborough.

  59. 2121: 
    GOAL- Peterborough 2-3 Kidderminster - Joe Lolley (76 mins)

    Kidderminster hit right back at Peterborough. Joe Lolley, in what will be his last game before joining Huddersfield, puts the non-league side back in front.

  60. 2120: 
    GOAL- Preston 2-2 Ipswich - David McGoldrick (76 mins)

    The goals are flying in at Deepdale! David McGoldrick heads Ipswich level.

  61. 2118: 
    GOAL- Peterborough 2-2 Kidderminster - Britt Assombalonga Pen (74 mins)

    Kidderminster shoot themselves in the foot with Lee Vaughan's rash challenge in the box punished by Britt Assombalonga.

  62. 2118:  
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 live at HillsboroughSheffield Wednesday 1-1 Macclesfield

    "Kay should have scored there, he did everything right with the first shot but he really should have done better with the rebound. They look so much brighter though since they scored and they are turning Wednesday now."

    You can listen to full commentary on BBC Radio 5 live and online.

  63. 2118:  
    John Murray, BBC Radio 5 live at HillsboroughSheffield Wednesday 1-1 Macclesfield

    "You fear that might be Macclesfield's great chance to win the game gone."

  64. 2117: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 Macclesfield

    Ooof! Sheffield Wednesday almost concede again as Scott Kay smashes an effort against the home woodwork. Then, he makes a hash of the rebound. Big chance.

  65. 2116:  
    Phil Brown, BBC 5 live pundit at PeterboroughPeterborough 1-2 Kidderminster

    "This is a proper FA Cup tie, they are going to have to throw everything including the kitchen sink at Kidderminster but credit to Darren Ferguson he has all his attacking options on the pitch and they are basically playing eight up front."

  66. 2115:  
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 live at HillsboroughSheffield Wednesday 1-1 Macclesfield

    "Just moments after they make the change, it was a great penalty. Macclesfield have created very little in this game and not really put the Wednesday defence under any pressure but credit to them they have hung in there are and could now go on to win."

    You can listen to full commentary on BBC Radio 5 live and online.

  67. 2112: 
    Preston 2-1 Ipswich - Joe Garner (69 mins)

    Two in a minute! And it is Joe Garner again to turn the tables on the Tractor Boys. Extraordinary. That was his 12th of the season.

  68. 2112: 
    GOAL- Preston 1-1 Ipswich - Joe Garner (68 mins)

    The home side are level as Joe Garner squeezes the ball home from a corner. Garner got his head to the cross and it deflected in off at least two players before somehow finding the net.

  69. 2111: 
    GOAL- Plymouth 2-2 Port Vale - Ben Williamson (63 mins)

    Port Vale are back level as Ben Williamson comes off the bench to level things up. A helter-skelter start to the second halves.

  70. 2110: 
    GOAL- Watford 2-0 Bristol City - Lewis McGugan (64 mins)

    Daylight between Championship side Watford and their League One visitors. Hornets midfielder Lewis McGugan drives into the bottom left corner after pouncing on a loose ball.

  71. 2110: 
    GOAL- Fulham 3-0 Norwich - Steve Sidwell (68 mins)

    Norwich leave themselves short at the back and Steve Sidwell buries his header to all but end the contest.

  72. 2109: 
    GOAL- Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 Macclesfield - Scott Boden (65 mins)

    What a moment for Macclesfield striker Scott Boden! The Sheffield United supporter converts a cool penalty in enemy territory to peg back Wednesday.

  73. 2108: 
    PENALTY TO MACCLESFIELD- Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 Macclesfield

    Macc boss John Askew chucks on two substitutes as the visitors go hell for leather - and they almost win a penalty for handball against Owls defender Joe Mattock.

  74. 2108:  
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 live at HillsboroughSheffield Wednesday 1-0 Macclesfield

    "This is a telling moment, I think Macclesfield need to to go two up front now and put the Sheffield Wednesday defender under some pressure."

    You can listen to full commentary on BBC Radio 5 live and online.

  75. 2107: 
    CLOSE!- Charlton 1-2 Oxford

    Oxford force a decent save from Ben Hamer, with the Charlton keeper pushing James Constable's header round the post. A much-improved Charlton had been putting their League Two opponents on the back foot, but the visitors remain a threat in attack.

  76. 2105: 
    Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 Macclesfield

    Fairly quiet opening to the second period at a sparsely-populated Hillsborough. Wednesday striker Chris Porter continues to pose problems for the non-league visitors, who will surely have to start playing more expansively soon.

    Leigh N from Preston, via text: When was the last time the FA cup holders were knocked out in the third round?

    Only a couple of years back surprisingly when Manchester City were beaten by Manchester United. It was only the sixth time in history that it has happened though.

  78. 2101: 
    GOAL- Preston 0-1 Ipswich - Franck Nouble (58 mins)

    Preston goalkeeper Declan Rudd is looking for somewhere to hide after his error allows Championship side Ipswich to edge ahead. The on-loan stopper tries to keep the ball in play, only to present Ipswich striker Franck Nouble the easiest of opportunities to score. Stick to using your head and your hands Ruddy- not your feet...

  79. 2101: 

    Forest Green and Grimsby's Conference meeting has fallen victim to floodlight failure.

    The referee has abandoned the game after the lights went out for a second time and could not be rebooted.

    The fans get vouchers for the rearranged game, it has just been announced. Probably small consolation for the travelling Grimsby few.

  80. 2100: 
    MK Dons 1-0 Wigan

    BBC Sport's Chris Osborne at Stadium MK: "This would be a first domestic defeat for Uwe Rosler as Wigan boss. One thing he has lost momentarily is his composure, jumping up and down and waving his arms in a strop as good as anyone when his side don't get a free-kick."

  81. 2058: 
    GOAL- Charlton 1-2 Oxford - Michael Morrison (54 mins)

    Chris Powell has rattled the right cages at the Valley. Michael Morrison rolls up from the back and heads home a corner to drag Oxford back within range of an Addicks comeback.

  82. 2056: 
    GOAL- Peterborough 1-2 Kidderminster - Jack Byrne (52 mins)

    An unbelievable turnaround at London Road! Whatever Kiddie boss Andy Thorn said to his troops at home time worked a treat as they take the lead - seconds after Peterborough hit the post - through Jack Byrne.

    Jack Byrne
  83. 2053: 
    GOAL- Peterborough 1-1 Kidderminster - Michael Gash (48 mins)

    Kidderminster lacked belief in the first half, according to BBC Radio 5 live pundit Phil Brown. But they come out for the second half like a different animal and bag within three minutes of the restart. Peterborough-born Michael Gash nods in from close range. His tea will be in the bin when he gets home tonight if the non-league side cause a shock here.

    KICK-OFF- Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 Macclesfield

    Hillsborough, who were the last lot off in the first half, have started the second half, so I make that a full house of FA Cup games back up and running.

  86. 2048: 

    We are back under way at Craven Cottage. The rest of the 1945 GMT kick-offs are a little tardy joining the second-half party...

    George Fram, via text: Norwich aren't performing when they need to and we need to get the ball to our striker more but not Elmander as he just can't seem to cope with Premier League sides and I think leaving Hooper out is a big big mistake.

    Charlie L, via text: The Norwich board's leniency with Chris Hughton is extraordinary in this day and age.

    Mark, a depressed Canaries fan, via text: Message to Mr David McNally, Chief Executive of Norwich City FC. Enough is now Enough ! Spare us now please and change our Manager before it's too late!

  88. 2045: 

    So who are the winners and losers at the halfway stage of the evening? League Two high-fliers Oxford are firmly on course for the biggest shock, with Charlton producing a first-half display wetter than their pond of a pitch.

    Meanwhile, Bournemouth are halfway to clinching a money-spinning home tie against Liverpool in round four. Holders Wigan have 45 minutes to avoid the embarrassment of being knocked out at the first hurdle of their defence.

    Chris Wright: My prediction of a first clean sheet for Fulham in 3 years is half way there......

    Tom Hill: Can you get sacked after an FA Cup game? Or are we going to have to wait till the weekend where we inevitably lose to Hull.

    Andy Giles: Boring. Predictable. Clueless tactics. Time for a change Delia. This side is going nowhere.

    Matt Graham: I really like Chris Hughton but I don't think he will be at Norwich much longer..

  90. 2042:  
    Phil Brown, BBC Radio 5 live pundit at London RoadHALF-TIME- Peterborough 1-0 Kidderminster

    "There is one thing missing in Kidderminster's game plan - belief. When they break into the Peterborough half they don't fully believe they can get something from this game. Kiddie boss Andy Thorn has got to get that into them at half-time - if he can they can cause an upset."

  91. 2040: 

    Just one goal in the Football League so far, a Lucas Akins strike giving Stevenage a 1-0 lead over Swindon while Walsall and Oldham remains goalless.

  92. 2040: 
    LIGHTS ON, AND OFF- Forest Green 1 -1 Grimsby

    They are going to have to put out a warning about strobe lighting at Forest Green. Another fuse has blown...

    The players just returned after a 10-minute delay and the game was just 20 seconds old second time around when the lights went out again. This time it seems to be more than just the one pylon. Play has stopped again.

  93. 2038:  
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 live at HillsboroughSheffield Wednesday 1-0 Macclesfield

    "Wednesday should be further in front, they've been dominant.

    "Macclesfield have only really had one effort and the movement from Wednesday's midfield has been too much for them to handle.

    "They're really on the front foot and causing Macclesfield problems. John Askey will want them to come out and be a bit more adventurous second half."

  94. 2035: 
    HALF-TIME- MK Dons 1-0 Wigan

    BBC Sport's Chris Osborne at Stadium MK: "Wigan's defence of their FA Cup reign could be ending with a whimper. MK Dons have got in behind them so many times it's getting a bit silly.

    "Aston Villa loanee Samir Carruthers looks a devilish little player for them. Wigan are curiously playing a back-three - made up of the hapless Leon Barnett and two midfielders. It's something Uwe Rosler will surely need to address at half-time."

  95. 2035: 
    Charlton 0-2 Oxford

    Charlton depart to half-time jeers. A strong 17,000 showing at the Valley. Let's take the temperature elsewhere...

  96. 2032:  
    Nabil Hassan, BBC Sport at Goldsands StadiumBournemouth 2-1 Burton

    "Dean Lyness was also equal to a low strike from Charlie Daniels but moments later he was powerless to keep out Tommy Elphick's effort from close range as Bournemouth's pressure finally saw Burton succumb.

  97. 2031: 
    PENALTY APPEAL- Charlton 0-2 Oxford

    Charlton have a strong penalty appeal waved away by referee Steve Martin, as Jordan Cousins' shot strikes Jake Wright on the arm. It's all going Oxford's way at the moment.

  98. 2031: 
    Preston 0-0 Ipswich

    Only one game without a goal in the FA Cup this evening with Preston and Ipswich still scoreless with half-time looming

  99. 2030: 
    GOAL- Bournemouth 2-1 Burton - Tommy Elphick (45 mins)

    The home side retake the lead through captain Tommy Elphick. A well-worked corner ends in Charlie Daniels crossing to the far post where Elphick pounces to turn in.

  100. 2029:  
    BBC Sport's Nabil Hassan at Goldsands StadiumBournemouth 1-1 Burton

    "Brett Pitman should have instantly put the Cherries back in front with his side-foot effort from 12 yards superbly kept out by Lyness. Great game here at the Goldsands Stadium."

  101. 2029: 

    There's finally a goal in League One where the division's bottom side Stevenage are ahead at home to Swindon, Lucas Akins with the opening goal.

  102. 2029:  
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 live at HillsboroughSheffield Wednesday 1-0 Macclesfield

    "If the score stays like this until half time there's an opportunity for Macclesfield. They've caused Wednesday a few problems after a slow start and they're still very much in this game."

  103. 2026: 
    GOAL- Fulham 2-0 Norwich - Ashkan Dejagah (41 mins)

    Norwich's defence goes walkabout as Alex Kacaniklic strolls on to a throughball and squares the ball for Iran international Ashkan Dejagah to fire past Mark Bunn and into the roof of the net.

  104. 2025: 
    MK Dons 1-0 Wigan

    BBC Sport's Chris Osborne at Stadium MK: "Top game of football this. Wigan have got two midfielders - Ben Watson and Chris McCann - amid their central defensive threesome. And it is noticeable.

    "Latics keeper Ali Al Habsi has pulled off two class saves. One from a Shaun Williams free-kick and just now, a wonderful finger-tip stop to deny Dean Lewington. But Uwe Rosler's men have threatened - Marc Antoine Fortune going close at the other end."

  105. 2024: 
    GOAL- Plymouth 2-1 Port Vale - Conor Hourihane (36 mins)

    A lovely strike from Conor Hourihane puts the Pilgrims back in front against League One Port Vale.

  107. 2023: 
    Charlton 0-2 Oxford

    Charlton inches away from going 3-0 down as Sean Rigg fires inches over the bar after picking up a loose ball on the edge of the area. The Addicks just haven't got going and the few home fans who have made the trip are growing increasingly irritated.

  108. 2022: 

    ...There's been a partial floodlight failure in the Conference game between Forest Green Rovers and promotion-chasing Grimsby. Not all the lights have gone out but players have had to go off with the score at 1-1 after 30 minutes.

    An announcement has just asked for the duty electrician to report for duty.

  109. 2021: 
    GOAL- Birmingham 1-0 Bristol Rovers - Paul Robinson (35 mins)

    A deep corner from Shane Ferguson appeared to evade everyone stood in the Rovers box - but not Paul Robinson. The veteran defender showed his alertness to pick up the loose ball and smash in from a narrow angle. And that is his first goal for the Blues.

  110. 2020: 
    GOAL- Bournemouth 1-1 Burton - Jimmy Phillips (35 mins)

    Jimmy Phillips chances his arm from distance and comes up trumps as his shot catches a wicked deflection that takes it past Ryan Allsop to level things up.

  111. 2018: 
    GOAL- Plymouth 1-1 Port Vale - Jordan Hugill (30 mins)

    The visitors - looking to avoid an embarrassment at a team who are 26 places below them in the league pyramid - are back on level terms. Young forward Jordan Hugill blasts the equaliser in to the bottom corner.

  112. 2016:  
    Kevin Kilbane, BBC Radio 5 live at HillsboroughSheffield Wednesday 1-0 Macclesfield

    "Still only 1-0 to Sheffield Wednesday, but Chris Maguire could have had a hat-trick already."

    You can listen to commentary of this match and updates from the other Cup ties on Radio 5 live.

  113. 2016: 
    CLOSE!- Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 Macclesfield

    The natty pink-coloured ball rattles around the Macclesfield penalty area like a pinball before it drops to Jacques Maghoma who balloons high over the crossbar. Goalscorer Chris Maguire also has a shot blocked on the line as Wednesday sniff non-league blood.

  114. 2015: 
    GOAL- Watford 1-0 Bristol City - Karleigh Osborne OG (26 mins)

    Lewis McGugan's deep corner is met by Marco Davide Faraoni whose header seems to get a final touch off City's Karleigh Osborne. Either way, Watford are ahead.

  115. 2014: 

    It's still goalless in League One in the matches between Stevenage and Swindon and Walsall and Oldham Athletic.

  116. 2011: 
    GOAL- Charlton 0-2 Oxford - Scott Davies (24 mins)

    James Constable's throughball pulls apart the Addicks' rearguard and Scott Davies applies the finishing touch with a powerful drive. Goalkeeper Ben Hamer could and should have done better however...

  117. 2011: 
    Charlton 0-1 Oxford

    Charlton are creating in attack. Laurie Wilson puts Yann Kermorgant into space down the flank, but the Frenchman fluffs his cross with options.

  118. 2009: 
    GOAL- Peterborough 1-0 Kidderminster - Tommy Rowe (26 mins)

    A bit of confusion over the identity of Peterborough's opening goalscorer as a home shirt prods in to the Kiddie goal from a crowded penalty area. Posh skipper Tommy Rowe wheels away in delight, so it looks like he got the decisive touch.

  119. 2008: 
    Preston 0-0 Ipswich

    It has been a quiet start at Deepdale, with no goals and no clearcut chances in the opening 20 minutes or so. But there have been 13 changes between the sides since the weekend so a disjointed start is perhaps unsurprising.

    Chris the Gashead, via text: Can we please get a shout out for all the Bristol Rovers fans travelling to Birmingham on a Tuesday night? I hear around 2000! We might be flirting with the Conference but we have Premier League supporters.

  121. 2006: 
    Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 Macclesfield

    Opta Joe: 3 - Chris Maguire has now scored in three successive appearances at home for Sheffield Wednesday (all competitions). Familiar.

  122. 2006:  
    Nabil Hassan, BBC SportBournemouth 1-0 Burton

    "Almost an equaliser for Burton as Adam Buxton finds himself one on one with Ryan Allsop but fires at the legs of the Cherries keeper."

  123. 2005: 
    Birmingham 0-0 Bristol Rovers

    BBC Sport's Ged Scott at St Andrew's: "League Two side Rovers have a chance to stun the home supporters in only the third minute when Elliot Richards is clean through only to fire weakly straight at Blues keeper Colin Doyle.

    "But Rovers keeper Steve Mildenhall then pulls off an amazing triple save at the other end to deny Paul Caddis (twice) and Lee Novak."

  124. 2003: 
    Peterborough 0-0 Kidderminster

    League One high-fliers Peterborough are dominating possession at London Road as they pass the ball comfortably and confidently while probing for an opening. But it is non-league Kiddie who enjoy the clearest chance through Lee Fowler.

  125. 2001: 
    GOAL- Fulham 1-0 Norwich - Darren Bent (16 mins)

    Ray Wilkins is pumping his fists behind Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen. Well he might. He has a nicely-worked opener to celebrate with Darren Bent sweeping in after Ashkan Dejagah dummies Pajtim Kasami's cross.

  126. 2001: 
    MK Dons 1-0 Wigan

    BBC Sport's Chris Osborne at Stadium MK: "He hasn't played since November but Luke Chadwick has showed the type of finish that earned him a Champions League winning medal all those years ago. The former Manchester United man times his run perfectly to slot in a tantalising cut-back from the impressive Samir Carruthers to put the League One side in front."

    John Mullins deflected shot finds its way home and we have another shock brewing with Championship Charlton behind.

  129. 1959: 
    Watford 0-0 Bristol City

    Little to separate the sides in the opening 10 minutes - Watford goalkeeper Jonathan Bond racing off his line to deny City skipper Sam Baldock, before Lewis McGugan is denied at the other end.

  130. 1955: 
    GOAL- MK Dons 1-0 Wigan - Luke Chadwick (10 mins)

    The holders are creaking. Luke Chadwick, formerly of Manchester United, Stoke, West Ham, Reading and others, scores to give Latics boss Uwe Rosler a problem. A big problem.

  134. 1951: 
    GOAL- Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 Macclesfield - Chris Maguire (3 mins)

    Andy Halls makes a slight mistake, but it is ruthlessly punished by Chris Maguire who rifles home low and hard to give the Owls the lead.

  135. 1950: 
    GOAL- Bournemouth 1-0 Burton Albion - Brett Pitman (5 mins)

    Matt Ritchie recovers a loose ball on the right before swinging a delicious delivery to the far post, where Brett Pitman is waiting to slide in the opener.

    HITS THE WOODWORK- Fulham 0-0 Norwich

    Robert Snodgrass with an absolute pearler, Maarten Stekelenburg a mere spectator, but the Norwich midfield man's 20-yard effort thuds back off the bar to save the hosts. Norwich on top early on.

  138. 1947:

  145. 1941: 
    Watford v Bristol City (1945 GMT)

    Contrasting fortunes between these sides have been a regular theme. Last season, they were at opposite ends of the Championship, with third-placed Watford losing in the play-off final and Bristol City suffering relegation to League One. Now it is Watford who are struggling after one win in 14 games, while City are unbeaten in five - including the 1-1 draw in the original tie.

  147. 1940: 
    Sheffield Wednesday v Macclesfield (1945 GMT)

    Macclesfield are the lowest-ranked team left in the competition after holding Wednesday to a 1-1 draw at Moss Rose. The Silkmen are looking to emulate their best-ever run in the FA Cup, which came last season when they reached the fourth round. Three-time FA Cup winners Wednesday are buoyant after Saturday's 6-0 thrashing of Yorkshire rivals Leeds United. A trip to Rochdale awaits the winners in the fourth round.

    Nottingham Forest await the winners of this tie and League One promotion hopefuls Preston hope 36-year-old striker Kevin Davies can add to his tally of two goals in two FA Cup appearances for the club.

    New Kidderminster boss Andy Thorn knows a thing or two about an FA Cup shock - he was part of the Wimbledon team which beat the mighty Liverpool in the 1988 final.

    Now he hopes to mastermind a shock win for the Conference minnows at the League One promotion hopefuls Peterborough. After a goalless first game, a trip to Premier League strugglers Sunderland awaits the winners.

    MK Dons v Wigan (1945 GMT)

    BBC Sport's Chris Osborne at Stadium MK: "These sides had never faced each other until the 3-3 draw that brought about this replay. But if all their future fixtures are half as entertaining as that six-goal thriller, they can happily meet up for a kick about every week.

    "Championship Wigan, the FA Cup holders, led 2-0 at one point in the first encounter, and will be wary of MK's upset exploits last season, when they knocked then-Premier League QPR out in the fourth round. Crystal Palace await the winners here at Stadium MK."

    Norwich manager Chris Hughton speaking to BT Sport: "We have made a few changes but that is not a reflection on the competition. We want to win this game but it is about getting the right balance.

    "A win could give us a lift. We were disappointed with how we went out last season, but we have another opportunity today and it is a tournament you want to do well in for the fans. We have three up front with Josh Murphy and Nathan Redmond supporting Johan Elmander."

    BBC Sport's Nabil Hassan at Goldsands Stadium: "After this game was originally postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, Bournemouth fans raised £3000 to help fund four supporter coaches for Burton's fans.

    Sheffield Wednesday make two changes from the side that beat Leeds 6-0 in the Championship on Saturday.

    They are without strikers Connor Wickham and Caolan Lavery, who are both ineligle. Jeremy Helan starts up front and Damian Martinez replaces Chris Kirkland in goal.

    Sheffield Wednesday starting XI: Martinez, Palmer, Johnson, Semedo, Llera, Loovens, Maguire, Lee, Nuhiu, Helan, Maghoma.

    Andrew, via text: Fulham vs Norwich is a game between two out of form sides. It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if both teams secretly wanted to lose tonight in order for them to concentrate solely on PL survival between now and May.

    Grant Holt

    There is no Grant Holt spearheading the line for Wigan tonight. The 32-year-old has completed a loan move to Aston Villa to reunite with former manager Paul Lambert.

    He managed eight goals in the Premier League last season and 15 in the top flight in 2011-12. Decent numbers and a decent bit of short-term business to strengthen a goal-shy Aston Villa forward line?

    BROMANCE OF THE CUP- Bournemouth v Burton Albion (1945 GMT)

    There is a lot of talk about the romance of the Cup. What about the bromance of the Cup though?

    The start of a beautiful thing dates back to when Bournemouth won promotion from League Two at Burton's Pirelli Stadium in 2010.

    "They were so hospitable that day that there's been a special feeling between the clubs ever since," said Bournemouth supporter David Whitehead.

    So special that Bournemouth supporters raised almost £3,000 to help Burton fans travel to their re-arranged FA Cup tie after 200 Albion supporters made a fruitless 300-mile round trip to the south coast earlier this month.

    Ben Atkinson: As an Oxford fan, the pitch looks awful tonight at The Valley, but I'm pleased the game is finally on. Less fixture congestion.

    Nathan Nicholls: Beating Burton will give Bournemouth the draw vs Liverpool we were denied in 2005 by a Djimi Traore own goal!

    Alan Johnson: What a terrible starting 11 for #ncfc tonight I see #ffc getting a big win tonight #bbcfootball #cluelesschris

    John Murray, BBC commentator at HillsboroughSheffield Wednesday v Macclesfield (1945 GMT)

    "Macclesfield are in an absolute mess and you wonder how with so much money in the game that a team in the fifth tier of English football have hardly got two pennies to rub together.

    "Macclesfield made something like £50,000 from the first game and they'll be hoping to make a similar amount from the replay.

    "If they progress to the fourth round, there's another £67,000 in prize money."

  176. 1912: 
    WIGAN TEAM NEWS- MK Dons v Wigan (1945 GMT)

    BBC Sport's Chris Osborne at Stadium MK: Four changes for FA Cup holders Wigan from Saturday's 3-0 win over Bournemouth - although it's a strong looking side. Stephen Crainey, James McLean, Roger Espinoza and Fraser Fyvie come in.

    Wigan starting XI: Al Habsi, Crainey, McCann, Watson, McClean, McArthur, Espinoza, Fyvie, Perch, Barnett, Fortune.

    While you read this (hopefully) fine prose, don't forget that you can also tune your ears in to a number of BBC radio commentaries.

    Non-league Macclesfield's trip across the Pennines to three-time winners Sheffield Wednesday can be heard on BBC Radio 5 live, with commentator John Murray and ex-Republic of Ireland winger Kevin Kilbane describing all the action at Hillsborough.

    Meanwhile, sister station BBC Radio 5 live sports extra is broadcasting live from Milton Keynes, where the hosts are aiming to knock out holders Wigan. And that is not all. A host of regional BBC radio stations are providing commentaries of their local teams (although these are not available online) - go to our comprehensive commentaries guide to find out what you can listen to.

    Your thoughts on tonight's action are the grease that oils the live text wheels. Two thoughts in particular to rack your grey matter for...

    Pick out which lower-league side will land the biggest scalp of the evening?

    And which FA Cup match in history would you replay? Either just for the entertainment of it or for more vengeful rewriting-of-history purposes?

    For me, Burton and Liverpool 4-4 Everton 1991.

    Charlton v Oxford (1945 GMT)
    The Valley

    If prizes were handed out for the worst pitch in British football, Charlton's The Valley would surely be taking home the trophy. The south-east London club have struggled with drainage problems all season, this tie already twice falling victim to the wet weather.

    BBC Radio Oxford's picture shows the current scene at a drenched Valley - although Charlton say referee Stephen Martin is happy with the slippery surface. So it is game on. Hope each kitman packed a few pairs of wellies in his bag...

  180. 1903: 

    There are two games in League One tonight with bottom side Stevenage hosting Swindon and Walsall at home to Oldham. For Graham Westley's side a win would help close the gap on the teams above them but won't move them off the bottom but a win for Swindon would see them move into the top six. Victory for Walsall could also see them move into the play-off places while Oldham can move further clear of the relegation battle with victory at the Banks's Stadium.

  181. 1902: 

    The fourth-round draw has raised the stakes for some of the teams in action tonight.

    The winners of Bournemouth and Burton's meeting will be preparing the away dressing room for likes of Luis Suarez, Steven Gerrard or at least some of the lesser Liverpool lights.

    Non-league Kidderminster can book in for a trip to Premier League Sunderland if they upset Peterborough, while West Ham's conquerors Nottingham Forest await for Ipswich or Preston.

    And the Wembley Arch is another step closer.

  182. 1857: 
    BREAKING TEAM NEWS- Fulham v Norwich (1945 GMT)

    Brede Hangeland returns to the Fulham side after a back injury to make his first appearance since 21 October. Maarten Stekelenburg is also included in a side that shows six changes to the side that lost 4-1 to Sunderland in the league.

    Fulham starting XI: Stekelenburg; Riether, Hangeland, Burn, Richardson; Karagounis, Sidwell; Dejagah, Kasami, Kacaniklic, Bent

    Norwich make six changes to the team that lost 2-0 away to Everton with Mark Bunn in for John Ruddy in goal and Johan Elmander starting up front.

    Norwich starting XI: Bunn; Whittaker, Martin, Bassong (c), Garrido; Fox, Johnson, Snodgrass; Redmond, Josh Murphy, Elmander.

    Brede Hangeland
  183. 1850: 

    So, perhaps the Bajan bombshell is not going to be glued to the action from London Road. Perhaps not all tonight's games are not replays.

    But don't let that get in the way of a tenuous opening entry.

    Instead focus on the future.

    And coming up fast on the horizon are holders Wigan putting their FA Cup defence on the line away at League One's MK Dons, 1975 finalists Fulham entertaining fellow Premier League side Norwich and non-league Macclesfield taking aim at three-time winners Sheffield Wednesday.

    Stop humming Umbrella and start thinking more Abide With Me.

  184. 1845: 

    "Run, Run, Run, Run, Everybody move run, Lemme see you move and rock it til the grooves done, shake it til the moon becomes the sun, everybody in the club give me a run."

    The words of FA Cup specialist Barry Fry? Perhaps former Cambridge United boss and high-energy advocate John Beck?

    Nope, it turns out that even dancehall star and controversy magnet Rihanna knows what is called for when the FA Cup gets "pon de replay".

    Get your giant-killing groove on. We are about to go deep into the night with some frenetic, sweaty FA Cup third-round action.
