That's a wrap

And that is all from us here this afternoon.

Why not join Mike Henson for the rest of Preston 1-1 Arsenal here?

Go on.

'We've still got a chance'

Sutton 0-0 AFC Wimbledon

Sutton United boss Paul Doswell told BBC Radio London.

“We created good chances and restricted them to very little overall. People are telling me that we were the better side, but that doesn’t count for a lot as we haven’t gone through yet. But we have to feel very proud or ourselves.

“Nine times out of 10, especially at their place, Wimbledon are the better side and they are going to beat us.

“But we matched them today, that is the magic of the FA Cup. We have to produce an upset now. We went from having decent enough chance, 50-50 maybe, now down to shorter percentage.

“But still it is a chance and in life you can take your chances.

“I’m trying to be realistic. We will need a  bit of luck on the night."

'Nothing wrong with being emotional'

Wycombe 2-1 Stourbridge

Stourbridge manager Gary Hackett told BBC WM 95.6:

“At the end, I was emotional. When you've been at a club for so long and you see that amazing support, it was a bit emotional. There's nothing wrong with that, I don't think.

“I didn't expect it (to be asked to address the supporters at full-time) and sometimes you don't know what you're saying in circumstances like that, but I wanted to say a big thank you from everybody connected with the football club for the support we've had today.

“Of course it (the cup run) will make a difference. Financially, it will put the club in a very strong position, and I think people will remember this day for a long, long time - albeit in defeat.”

'One of the highlights of my career'

Brentford 5-1 Eastleigh

Eastleigh manager Martin Allen told Radio Solent: "There was a worry at half-time that the players would back off, show fear and they certainly didn’t do that.

“I thought we took the game to Brentford in the second half, kept a clean sheet in the second half and I wanted the players in the second half to go out and do their families proud, and they certainly did that."

(On return to his former club Brentford) “It was very emotional for me, I had to do all I could not to shed a couple of tears as I walked across that pitch, but it was an amazing moment and probably one of the highlights of my career to get that sort of reception from all those people, it was a magical moment for me personally.”

'The keeper knew it was in'

West Brom 1-2 Derby

Derby midfielder Tom Ince, speaking to BBC Radio Derby about his match-winning free-kick: "It's about time I got one in. I practise free-kicks a lot in training, and it's nice to do it on a match day. 

"The free-kick was in an awkward position where I couldn't really put it into the box for a cross. The goalkeeper had three in the wall, and he left a lot of space to his left, so I thought that if I was able to get it up and over the wall and on target, then I'd give myself a chance. As soon as it went over the wall, the keeper didn't move - and I think he knew straight away that was in. 

"It was a fantastic performance all round. It's always a big test when you come to a Premier League side, especially when you're away from home - but I thought we played ever so well."

'My players were heroic'

Ipswich 2-2 Lincoln

Lincoln boss Danny Cowley: "My players were heroic for me today, absolutely heroic.

"There was a tinge of disappointment at the end, but the overriding emotion in the dressing room is one of pride.

"We went toe-to-toe with a good, experienced Championship side and gave a very good account of ourselves. We spoke all week that a success for us would have been getting a standing ovation at the end.

"We wanted to give our supporters something to remember and for a National League club to have 5,000 supporters away from home says everything about them. If we can be half as good as our supporters, we will be a very good team." 

Teenager Mason impresses Mazzarri

Watford 2-0 Burton Albion


Watford Head Coach Walter Mazzarri: "I was very happy with the new faces. (Brandon) Mason made his full debut and managed to do very well. It is something important for the long-term future of the club.

"It is a good win for a team not doing very well with results. This today will help with confidence for Premier League.

"It is very important to win, especially for our fans. We wanted to give them this satisfaction and hopefully we can do the same next week against Middlesbrough."

'The ref marked out 13 paces for that free-kick'

West Brom 1-2 Derby

West Bromwich Albion

West Brom manager Tony Pulis, speaking to BBC WM: "I'm really proud of the players. They've worked so hard. We battered them. We needed a break and we didn't get a break.

 "The two goals they scored are disappointing from our point of view. We should have dealt with the first one - we stepped away from their player. 

 "With the second one, we'll have to talk about the wall. I've been in to see Jon [Moss, the referee], and he's marked out 13 paces for that free-kick. With others in the game, he's marked out 10 paces. Those are the breaks you need to get through in cup football."

Ake on his way?

Millwall 3-0 Bournemouth

Unconfirmed at this stage but there are reports that defender Nathan Ake is going to return to Chelsea from his loan spell at Bournemouth - where has has impressed. 

Paul Cox not a fan of 'going digital' there. 

'It's chip paper now'

Barrow 0-2 Rochdale

Barrow manager Paul Cox: "We were on the verge of making history in this competition but it's over, it's chip paper, and I've told the players it is now all about how we react from today's defeat in terms of our mind-set and approach.

"There has to be a sense of pride that we've got as far as we have and while I'd love for us to have been more clinical in front of goal, realistically I don't think we were good enough to win the game today."

Clement after new signings

Hull 2-0 Swansea

Swansea City

Swansea manager Paul Clement: "I wouldn’t say we need an influx because there are good players in this squad already.

"But we are looking to do something, and we have got to make sure the players we bring in are better than what we have got.

“We are also working hard on the training field to get my ideas across as quickly as possible. That’s an area where we can help improve the team, as well as bringing in new signings.”

'We should beat Bolton'

Bolton 0-0 Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce: "We're still in the hat. Bolton gave us a real good game. I want us to get better - I wouldn't say I was satisfied with what I saw.

"We haven't kept a clean sheet for a while at this club, so we've got that. And we'll take Bolton back to our place later this month.

"For me we should have had enough to beat Bolton, if I'm honest. If we were clinical we would have."


Stoke 0-2 Wolves

Stoke City

Stoke manager Mark Hughes: "We lost the game on the first half, the strength of the XI we put out should have been capable of getting a result this afternoon.

"We wanted a cup run, sadly that's not the case and that's disappointing. We need to pick up and get our act together next week now."

'We will not be overawed in the replay'

Sutton United 0-0 AFC Wimbledon

BBC Radio 5 live

Sutton boss Paul Doswell on 5 live Sport: "I felt we deserved to win what was tight game. We have four or five really good chances and restricted Wimbledon to very few. We even hit the bar. 

"I think today was an opportunity missed, but I do believe that there will be an FA Cup upset and we still feel it can be us, going to Wimbledon, who cause it. We will not be overawed in the replay, I can promise that. 

"I am so proud of our football club, putting on an event like this today for 5,500 people. We were in no way disgraced today. 

"I hope to see many, many people at the replay and perhaps we might just be chosen by the BBC to be the televised game."

'Glad we're still in the hat'

Sutton 0-0 AFC Wimbledon

A replay is not what any manager wants ideally - but AFC Wimbledon gaffer Neal Ardley is chuffed to still be in the competition.

"I thought Sutton did what I expect from a home team in the FA Cup, they took the game to us and had plenty of attacking threat. 

"I just wanted to make sure we were in the hat. I knew they would be experts on their plastic pitch and we put in a solid display. 

"It was backs-to-the-wall at times but there was not much in it. We put in a professional performance and have given ourselves a better chance of getting into the fourth round."

It's not all over...

FA Cup: Millwall 3-0 AFC Bournemouth highlights

'A great day'

Brentford 5-1 Eastleigh

Eastleigh manager Martin Allen: "I thought our players were superb from start to finish. We had good chances at 3-1 down. I asked them at half -time to do their families proud, it could have been a real tanking, and they did that.

"I couldn't ask any more from them and they got a standing ovation from the Brentford fans. Despite the result it was a great day for me personally.

"I've been here a month now and we have got a mix and match squad still. It's like a box of Quality Street."

'The FA Cup means everything'

Stoke City 0-2 Wolves

BBC Radio 5 live

Paul Lambert

Paul Lambert, Wolves manager, on 5 live Sport: "I feel brilliant, and that was deserved. We were fantastic from the off and there were so many big pluses from that game. We played lads who don't always play and a young 16-year-old even got some game time.

"It's tough to come to a Premier League side but on any given day you can win a game. We came here with a plan to stop Stoke and impose our own game and I think we did that all game. 

"Recently, we have been playing exceptional football. The performances are really good and if we can turn that into consistent wins we'll be in a good place.

"The FA Cup means everything - whenever you're in a competition you should try and win it, so you might have some silverware to hold onto when you stop playing the game."

Everton surrender unbelievable - Koeman

Everton 1-2 Leicester

Everton manager Ronald Koeman is offering no excuses in his assessment of Leicester's comeback win at Goodison.

"It's not bad luck; we did it ourselves. It's unbelievable how we dropped back," says the Dutchman.

"Everyone is disappointed, but I know what we need to change. It's my job to get results to match the expectations of this club." 

'Musa starting to understand English football'

Everton 1-2 Leicester

Ahmed Musa has taken a little bit of time to find his feet since arriving at Leicester. But the £17m summer signing from CSKA Moscow showed today why the Foxes splashed the cash.

"Musa was excellent. I've watched him recently and think he is starting to understand English football better,"  says Foxes manager Claudio Ranieri.

'Our player was taken out by their player'

Sutton United 0-0 AFC Wimbledon

BBC Radio 5 live

AFC Wimbledon boss Neil Ardley on 5 live Sport: "That was a really tough [artificial] surface to play on - we had to adapt to it, hang on at times and put in a really professional performance.

"I think our player was taken out by their player, who was the wrong side, in their box, and nine times out of 10 that is a penalty. But I don't think the referee wanted to give that today."

I loved our reaction - Ranieri

Everton 1-2 Leicester

We've not seen that cheeky grin from Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri much this season. He's wearing it in his post-match interview.

"I'm very pleased," says the Italian gaffer. "We made a good match against a big team who we lost to at home in the league. I loved our reaction to conceding a goal."  

Cherries picked

Millwall 3-0 Bournemouth

They might have played a second string, but their heavy defeat still brought an unwanted stats.

Bournemouth are the first Premier League team to lose an away FA Cup match by three goals to a side from the third tier or below.


Where are we with replays then? This little lot will go again a week on Tuesday/Wednesday:

Newcastle v Birmingham

Barnsley v Blackpool

Crystal Palace v Bolton

Fleetwood v Bristol City

Lincoln v Ipswich

Southampton v Norwich

Burnley v Sunderland

AFC Wimbledon v Sutton

So spirited Stourbridge have bitten the dust. That leaves two non-league teams still in the pot.

Conference leaders Lincoln City and their divisional rivals Sutton must negotiate replays though if they are to play in round four.


Friendly rivalry

Wycombe 2-1 Stourbridge

Who said the romance of the FA Cup was dead? We've got a bromance between Wycombe and Stourbridge...

What an effort from @StourbridgeFC on and off the pitch today. They pushed us all the way with a magnificent performance. #WYCvSTO

One of this season's great FA Cup stories comes to an end. Let's hope it's the #Chairboys who embark on an equally special adventure now.

Thanks to all at @wwfcofficial for their welcome and hospitality.
