Jay Simpson- Burnley 3 West Brom 1
It was a frustrating night for Jay on Tuesday. Not only did the Baggies crash out of the FA Cup at the hands of Burnley, but the in-form striker also picked up a hamstring injury.
Jay was replaced by Chris Brunt on 36 minutes and after his departure West Brom went on to suffer a 3-1 defeat to the Clarets.
Wade Elliott gave the hosts the lead on the stroke of half-time and Steven Thompson then doubled Burnley’s advantage after the break. Gianni Zuiverloon pulled one back with a deflected effort but Thompson struck again to set up a potential visit to Emirates Stadium in Round Five.
Kerrea Gilbert- Walsall 1 Leicester 4
Kerrea completed 75 minutes as Leicester continued their surge towards promotion with a comprehensive 4-1 victory over Walsall on Tuesday night.
Matty Fryatt opened the scoring on 12 minutes with his first away goal since November and then Andy King, Tom Cleverley and Steve Howard all found the net to complete the rout. Dwayne Mattis scored a consolation for the hosts but it was too late for the tide of the game to change.
Kerrea was replaced by Brown with 15 minutes remaining.
Nacer Barazite- Nottingham Forest 2 Derby3
Nacer completed 90 minutes as Derby staged a terrific Cup comeback against Nottingham Forest.
Forest went ahead after just 37 seconds through Chris Cohen and then doubled their advantage when Nathan Tython notched with 12 minutes played. Rob Hulse pulled one back for Derby before the break and then Paul Green levelled proceedings. Kris Commons then went on to grab the winner 17 minutes from time from Robbie Savage’s assist.
Nacer put in a steady performance, although he was lucky not to be booked for a late challenge on Kevin Wilson.
Nonetheless Derby progressed after six minutes of injury time and will host Manchester United in the next round.
Philippe Senderos- Rangers 2 AC Milan 2
Philippe made his return to Britain, completing the first 45 minutes of a pulsating friendly with Rangers at Ibrox.
It was 0-0 at the break but the action livened up in the second period with the two sides sharing four goals. The hosts took the lead through DaMarcus Beasley, but Milan levelled through Brazilian wonder-kid Alexandre Pato. An amazing Kaka strike from all of 18 yards made it 2-1 to the Italian side but Sasa Papac struck eight minutes from time to earn the Gers a deserved draw.
Elsewhere, Henri Lansbury‘s Scunthorpe debut was put on hold after the Irons’ game with Southend was called off following a late pitch inspection. There was no action for Paul Rodgers either as Northampton’s game with Swindon was also postponed because of a frozen pitch. Rui Fonte‘s Crystal Palace also had their game postponed whilst Abu Ogogo and Rene Steer both had to miss out because of postponements due to the adverse weather conditions.
