Charlton want Watt

Charlton 1-2 Blackburn

Charlton manager Bob Peeters confirmed after the game that he wants to sign striker Tony Watt from Standard Liege.

Watt is best known for his winning goal for Celtic against Barcelona in the Champions League in 2012.

Peeters said: "Hopefully Tony Watt will sign this week. He did well last season. He wasn't too happy but he will give you something up front. He has pace and scoring ability.

"We had only 13 players available and our bench was an under-21 bench. If you see the likes that Blackburn had on the bench, they're a strong team, but hopefully we will recover five or six players for the game against Brighton which will make a difference."

Bolton manager Neil Lennon on match-winning debutant Zach Clough: "When you're that small you have to be special and I think he is special.

"I had a player at Celtic in James Forrest and Zach's very similar to him. I think that's the biggest compliment I can pay Zach. We just have to be mindful we don't get carried away.

"We thought we would give the kid an opportunity to play and the system suits the way he plays. He lit the stadium up and the goal was brilliant."

GOODBYE GERRARD

Former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson

5 live Sport

"I don't think Steven Gerrard's departure from Liverpool has been handled particularly well, in all honestly. When Gerrard got left out in the Bernabeu against Real Madrid I thought was very strange, and since then he has not been playing every week.

"Next season he will be able to go and enjoy his football week-in week-out somewhere else. But I don't think Liverpool have handled it very well at all."

GOODBYE GERRARD

Former Leicester and Derby midfielder Robbie Savage

on 606 phone-in on BBC Radio 5 live

"I think the time is right for Steven Gerrard to leave Anfield. I played against him numerous times and he was the best Premier League player I ever faced. His passing range is fantastic.

"I said last week on Match of the Day that at home I'd play him in a back three. But playing him in the middle of the park, the way Brendan Rodgers wanted him to play, then he needed more pace. So if he wants to play every week now is the right time to leave."

GOODBYE GERRARD

Away from the FA Cup, this weekend's big story is of course the announcement from Steven Gerrard that he is to leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

In an interview with the club, Gerrard says being told he will start fewer games is the main reason he has decided to leave Anfield in the summer.

Gerrard will join an MLS club in America at the end of the season.

"The key conversation was when the manager sat me down and said it was time to manage my games," the 34-year-old told the Liverpool FC website.

"It was a very difficult conversation to have. I'm bright enough to realise it is the right thing. I accept it."

Manager reaction

Preston 2-0 Norwich

Norwich manager Neil Adams: "We just didn't look creative. I don't know if we had a shot on target, which is a big concern for me. The game was a nothing game.

"The team we put out was a strong team and should be doing better. We were passing the ball but the cutting edge was lacking and we have to defend better than that."

McClaren on the Newcastle job

Derby manager Steve McClaren on rumours linking him to the Newcastle job: "Pure speculation. I've heard nothing and I see all the rumours. I have said that this, Derby, is my focus. We have a really good chance in the second half of the season, and we have a job to do, to challenge and perhaps get into that Premier League.

"It's pure speculation until it happens. I'm enjoying working with the club and the board. We've all worked together very well over the last 15 months. I want to finish the job here."

Rochdale 1-0 Nottingham Forest

Former Leicester and Derby midfielder Robbie Savage

on 606 phone-in on BBC Radio 5 live

"Forest's team should have been enough to go to Rochdale and not get beaten. Their recent form simply isn't good enough, after what had been a great start to the season. Stuart Pearce was a fantastic player, a club legend who played in an FA Cup final. So it's a big decision for the club, where they go from here."

Former Leicester and Derby midfielder Robbie Savage

on 606 phone-in on BBC Radio 5 live

"For Newcastle, this was the only trophy they could possibly have won this season. If John Carver really wanted the managerial job permanently, why didn't he play his strongest team today? Ridiculous decision. It can't always be about avoiding Premier League relegation for Newcastle United."

Manager reaction

West Brom 7-0 Gateshead

BBC Radio 5 live

Gary Mills, Gateshead manager: "7-0 was the score but for 40 minutes were were excellent. We kept the ball and restricted them to very little. But they won a soft free-kick and scored from that, and then we went into half-time 2-0 down. That changed the whole outlook of the game, then conceding just after the restart killed it.

"I genuinely thought we were the better side of a long while. We have to take that positive into our next fixture.

"I applauded my fans then realised the West Brom fans were applauding us, which was lovely. I wish the club and Tony Pulis well. Now we have to focus on climbing our league."

'Seven minutes of madness'

Blyth 2-3 Birmingham

BBC Radio 5 live

Blyth Spartans chairman Tony Platten: "It's been a day of ups and downs. Extreme highs, 2-0 up at half-time. But then we had a seven-minute spell of madness at the back and Birmingham's obvious fitness and power came through and they scored the three they needed. I spoke to a Birmingham director at half-time and their hearts were pounding, thinking they might be on the end of an upset.

"It's been a crazy day. At one stage the BBC asked us to turn all our floodlights on. Usually we only have two or three. So I did and four of the floodlights started to fail, so I was running round trying to keep them going. Fortunately I managed to keep things on and the game concluded. Every chairman of a non-league club gets his hands dirty every week, just to keep the show on the road.

"To get to the third round of the Cup is the pinnacle of a chairman's career. I'm delighted we put on a good show and weren't embarrassed by anything. Everything went perfectly - no pitch invasion or pyrotechnics, and the FA are very happy with what we've done. So hopefully we can do it all again next year."

"The aim on the way down was to be in the fourth round hat, and we've achieved that."

Newcastle caretaker manager John Carver: "Newcastle's fans should expect better. I'm one of them. I've been there with them and I would be the same. They travelled all this way having spent a lot of money over the festive period, and they're entitled to their opinions.

"The one thing as far as I was concerned is that I wasn't going to let our players leave the pitch before going over and thanking the fans. And I was right there at the front, and so I should be because I can take it, I'm a big boy."

Psycho speaks

Rochdale 1-0 Nottingham Forest

Stuart Pearce

Nottingham Forest manager Stuart Pearce,

speaking to the club's official website: "We've once again gifted the opposition a very, very soft goal. That decision-making under pressure has cost us. Apart from that we probably dominated the game. We had a host of efforts, especially in the second half, but we failed to create a goal.

"They're showing enough endeavour, but if you make elementary mistakes in our own box it's going to be costly."

Rochdale 1-0 Nottingham Forest

Guardian journalist Daniel Taylor: "Strange thing here that Keith Hill wouldn't do any interviews. No Rochdale players available either. It's a cup upset! Should be milking it."

Manager reaction

Preston 2-0 Norwich

BBC Radio 5 live

Preston manager Simon Grayson: "It's very pleasing to beat a Championship team looking to get back in the Premier League. Our keeper hardly had a save to make all game.

"Paul Gallagher has got fantastic ability and he's here on a season-long loan. He's a flexible player and for him to get the goals today is great, but collectively we were very strong and organised in doing what we did.

"The FA Cup is a fantastic competition but it's actually our lowest priority. The club is geared for the Championship and we want to get back there, and we have a Football Trophy semi-final on Wednesday. But doing well in the Cup breeds confidence and momentum."

Manager reaction

Blyth 2-3 Birmingham

BBC Radio 5 live

Birmingham boss Gary Rowett: "I'm disappointed by our first half. Credit to Blyth and it's what this cup competition is all about. We had a goal chalked off early on and I'm not sure what that was for, but we were then undone by two really good bits of their wing play.

"At half-time I told the players it had not been what I wanted. In the second half we showed our pace and power. Little spaces started to open up and I think certain Blyth players will have been thankful for the final whistle at the end.

"I don't always want to get angry at half-time. I just told told them that a thousand of our supporters had travelled here to Blyth. I wanted us to give them something positive.

"We hadn't tested Blyth in the first half so we went a bit more direct, putting balls behind them into space, and those three quick goals just managed to steal it.

"I thought Blyth were brilliant, an absolute credit to the town, the fans and their manager, If they had beaten us I couldn't have had too many complaints, I hope they now go on and achieve promotion from their division this season."

Derby 1-0 Southport

BBC Radio 5 live

Derby boss Steve McClaren: "This is the FA Cup and this was always going to be one of those times when the opposition is going to frustrate. We weren't positive or smart enough around the box, and the only way we were going to score was through a penalty.

"But credit to Southport and their fans, who created a great atmosphere. I'm going for a nice glass of wine with Gary Brabin now. His team worked hard, defended, blocked and their keeper was magnificent. It was injury-time and I was dreading a replay in Southport.

"But our subs made an impact, and we all know that in these third round ties anything can happen. We didn't want to be the headlines tomorrow morning, and very fortunately we're not."

Manager reaction

Derby 1-0 Southport

Southport boss Gary Brabin: "We played against a top side in Derby and I've told the lads in the dressing room that in 2015 I'm sure Derby will be a Premier League side.

"They found it hard to break us down but we played well in patches and gave them a couple of scares. It wasn't just a case of getting men behind the ball, we created a threat."

On concentrating on the Conference, where they lie 20th in the table: "Since I've been here in the last three months, the lads have worked hard, and had a great cup run as well. We have got some great results, raised the bar a bit today and if we keep it going then we'll be OK."

Rochdale 1-0 Nottingham Forest

BBC Radio 5 live

Rochdale chairman Chris Dunphy: "Fantastic! A great game of football and the win was thoroughly deserved. A few young players were out there and they all stepped up for the football club. It's what we're trying to do here, bring players through our academy. Because of illness and injuries we were down to the bare bones, but they all delivered.

"As the chairman, most of the time it's hard work but today's the sort of game to enjoy. We will enjoy this tonight - it's two years in a row now that we've reached the fourth round of the FA Cup."

Manager reaction

Leicester 1-0 Newcastle

BBC Radio 5 live

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson: "What a difference a week and a half makes, eh? It was an important result for us today, off the back of two decent results in the league. Our league performances have been better than the results reflect. And now we have to build upon positives, with today being such a scrappy affair. But we didn't look overly uncomfortable when they had the ball.

"They had an unluckily disallowed goal which was possibly onside. So that's one that's fallen our way, though the debate remains regarding the use of technology. But with today's result that's three good wins on the trot."

Blyth 2-3 Birmingham

Former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson

"That was the original game of two halves. Birmingham made 10 changes and the way they started it looked like they'd made 100. But Blyth were fantastic and were of course more used to the conditions. Birmingham must have got a rocket at half-time, and their three goals in six minutes was enough to see them through."

'No offers for Berahino'

West Brom 7-0 Gateshead

BBC Radio 5 live

Saido Berahino

West Brom manager Tony Pulis on vacating the stands for the touchline in the first half: "There were one or two things I wanted to say and I was too far away from the pitch. It was very unusual for me me not to have my cap and tracksuit on on the touchline. But Gateshead put in such effort and commitment and their supporters should be very proud of their players, coaches and the manager today. The longer the game went on the better we got, but it took 15-20 minutes for us to settle down.

"The club has had no offers for Saido Berahino and I've had one day's training with him, and I'm looking forward to working with him. He can score a goal and he's got the balance of a very good player. He looks as though he's got the potential to be a good player. If any offers come in I'll get on the phone to the BBC and ask you guys what I should do!

"It was good today - I got that adrenaline rush before the game and on the touchline I can't stand still. I'm impressed with the club, impressed by the people, and I hope we do well this season and then we can look to put things in place for the longer term."

Manager reaction

Tom Wade, Blyth Spartans manager: "I'm exceptionally proud of the lads and how we performed today. Robbie Dale had a great game - two fantastic goals. We were the better team in the first half and maybe half-time slightly killed us. Birmingham aren't in the Championship for no reason, of course. I thought they might get a foothold in the game and when they did they were awesome, to be honest.

"The FA Cup for non-league players, means everything, the world. It's the biggest tournament in the world for us, and it's a pleasure to play in it."
