Attendance: 30,763

Referee:

The Crystal Palace run in the FA Cup is continuing for at least one more round after the third round win against Southampton at the St Mary's Stadium on Saturday.

Alan Pardew got one over his former side, as Palace had in the league recently, with a two-one win over Southampton putting the Eagles into the next round.

Palace went into the lead just before the half hour mark when Joel Ward, who would have got extra joy from this being a former Portsmouth man, finished off a Jason Puncheon pass to have the visitors ahead at half time.

After Oriol Romeu had drawn Southampton level, following up when Cuco Martina had seen his effort saved, Wilfried Zaha volleyed in the winner at the midway point of the second half as he followed up a Marten Stekelenburg save as Puncheon had threatened to score against his former side.

These were the other results.

Some interesting results (so far), with some upsets, but on the whole those expected to go through did go through or at least remained in the competition! Well, I would say anyway.

But the stand out results, with them causing upsets to progress, have to be the wins for Walsall, Colchester and Peterborough beating Brentford (Bees boss Dean Smith's former side) one-nil, Charlton two-one and Preston two-nil respectively, to put all of the League 1 side through against the Championship sides to see them into the next round keep those cup dreams alive.

The win of the round, (so far) has to be the three-two win for League 2 side over Swansea at the Kassam Stadium, which is almost certainly the win of the round!

Mentions have to go to Wycombe for holding struggling Premier League side Aston Villa to a one-one draw at Adams Park with Eastleigh (with the game eventually going ahead after a number of pitch inspections) denied a win by a late Bolton equaliser in a one-one draw.

Portsmouth who were also within a couple of minutes of beating Ipswich who grabbed a two-two draw late on at Portman Road with League 2 promotion rivals Northampton also involved in a two-all draw with another Championship side MK Dons with one more two-two draw seeing a dramatic injury-time goal from West Brom denying struggling Championship side Bristol City a win over the Premier League side.

Following the win we know our name will be in that pot for the draw for the next round, which takes place on Monday night.
