  1. Goodnight

    Some decent goals there. Hopefully we'll see a few more tomorrow.

    We'll be back then... after Andy Murray has been crowned Australian Open champion.

    Fingers crossed, eh?


  2. Manager reaction - Michael Appleton

    Oxford 0-3 Blackburn

    "We knew it wouldn't be easy and we came across a really strong outfit in Blackburn.

    "We weren't surprised by them, we knew what they are about. We played a part in all their goals, which is disappointing. We were a little bit naive and it probably shows why we are still a League Two side but we will learn from it.

    "We are having a fantastic time this year, but we are where we are for a reason. We just came up a bit short today."  

  3. Manager reaction - Paul Lambert

    Oxford 0-3 Blackburn

    On the impending departure of striker Jordan Rhodes to Middlesbrough for £9m.

    "The lad came and saw me, he wanted to go, and to be honest I thought the club should have taken the offer the summer before.

    "He has been excellent for Blackburn, but the money is too good to turn down. The investment will help, the club has got to rebuild."

  4. Rovers roll on

    Oxford 0-3 Blackburn

  5. Sixty quid?!

    Oxford 0-3 Blackburn

    "I'm just nipping out with the little un', love. We're off to have some lunch, get the car washed and, if we have chance, take in some football."

  6. 'Chuba spat his dummy last week'

    Bury 1-3 Hull

    Chuba Akpom

    Hull manager Steve Bruce: "I'm delighted for Chuba. He spat his dummy out last week and threw his toys out of the pram. He's a young player with lots of ability and I'm sure it'll do him the world of good

    "It's good to see him get a hat-trick and I'm sure he'll remember that for a while. I used the squad, like I always do, and if I can call on players like that then it bodes well. It was difficult for us because of the conditions but I was pleased with the way we went about it."

  7. From the press box

  9. Kanu canny in Cup

    Reading 4-0 Walsall

    Hal Robson-Kanu

    Bingo for Hal Robson-Kanu. The Wales striker likes the FA Cup. His last five goals for Reading have all been in the competition.

  10. Only one winner

  11. Manager reaction

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Stoke

    Stoke manager Mark Hughes, who made eight changes, said: "We were a little bit stretched, we had a number of players unavailable.

    "We didn't have enough in the final third when we had good opportunities. We're disappointed because it's a competition we wanted to do well in.

    "We can have a good run at the European places (via the Premier League), we're very much in the mix. We can focus on what we have left. We want to try and build on the past two seasons, which is two ninth-placed finishes. We want to go better than that."

  12. Manager reaction

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Stoke

    Crystal Palace fans may well be heading to Wembley, if boss Alan Pardew is to be believed: "I've said it before: lesser teams than the quality I have have won this competition in recent years," says Pardew.

    "We've got the talent to win it, you need a bit of luck with the draw: we don't need Man City away, we don't need Chelsea away, someone at home would be nice.

    "I'm always conscious of this competition, I've come so close on two occasions, that it's a strong bond in me to try and win it. This team is every bit as good as that (West Ham) team I took to that final in 2006, but you do need a break here and there."

  13. Man of the match

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Stoke

    BBC Sport's Michael Emons said Wilfried Zaha was the man of the match with "his pace and trickery" a constant threat to the Stoke defence.

  14. Where's Adebayor?

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Stoke

    There was disappointment today for fans of that great footballing enigma Emmanuel Adebayor.

    Alan Pardew decided to not use him today for Crystal Palace's game with Stoke.

    But never fear, Peter Odemwingie, he of the failed-deadline-day-drive-to-move-to-another-club, was in the Stoke side, one of eight changes.

    You win some, lose some.

    Crystal Palace XI: Hennessey, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Souare, Ledley, Cabaye, Zaha, Lee, Puncheon, Campbell.

    Stoke XI: Haugaard, Bardsley, Wollscheid, Wilson, Pieters, Ireland, van Ginkel, Shaqiri, Bojan, Odemwingie, Joselu.

  15. 'FA Cup could save LvG'

    Derby 1-3 Man Utd

    Alan Shearer

    Former England striker

    "When Arsenal won the FA Cup it kept them going and gave Arsene Wenger a bit of time. Without this competition you could imagine the calls that Wenger would be having to answer. It's a similar situation now for Manchester United."

  16. Manager reaction

    Nottingham Forest 0-1 Watford

    Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores: "Forest are a good team, but we controlled the match, had more possession and created more chances.

    "Nordin Amrabat needs to know the system and the team-mates. He also needs to get used to the football in England.

    "We were happy with the presence of Costel Pantilimon and Amrabat today."

  17. Manager reaction

    Nottingham Forest 0-1 Watford

    Forest manager Dougie Freedman: "Overall I think we have contributed to a fantastic game today. In the first half we stood off a little bit too much - I think we paid them too much respect, although saying that we had the best chance of the game in the 45th minute.

    "Second half we got at them and showed we could win this tie. We moved up a gear, had some exciting moments and created enough chances to win the game but half a chance and Watford have got the winner."
