LONDON, Jan 28 (SW) - Sunderland were the only Premiership side to be dumped out of the FA Cup on Saturday by a lower-league team, falling away to League One side Brentford at Griffin Park in their fourth round tie. Elsewhere, a late goal lifted Bolton Wanderers to a win over Arsenal.
Brentford - Sunderland 2-1
Mired in an absolutely dismal season, Sunderland boss Mick McCarthy was hoping for a good FA Cup run to overshadow that, but D.J. Campbell's two goals saw that the Black Cats would be left to focus on their impending relegation.
The Bees went in front in the 57th minute as Campbell raced into the Sunderland area, went round goalkeeper Kelvin Davis and tucked the ball home, only for Sunderland's luck to get them level as an attempted cross by Julio Arca somehow found its way into Stuart Nelson's goal.
Brentford were not to settle for a replay and with one minute to play, Campbell beating Neil Collins to a loose ball and firing strong past Davis to snatch a great win and a spot in the fifth round.
Bolton Wanderers - Arsenal 1-0
Arsenal fielded several young inexperienced players, and late on Stelios Giannakopoulos fired Bolton into the fifth round in the 84th minute after the match had looked like it was headed for a Highbury replay.
Stelios rose to head home a cross by Ricardo Gardner from just in front of Manuel Almunia's goal at the Trotters into the fifth round.
Everton - Chelsea 1-1
A replay is in the cards at Stamford Bridge as the champions were held to a draw at Goodison Park by Everton, who had the advantage in the match in the 36th minute as James McFadden headed home a perfect cross by Nuno Valente.
Chelsea eventually started playing their game in the second half and on 73 minutes they found themselves level as Frank Lampard made no mistake in beating Nigel Martyn after being played through by William Gallas.
Manchester City - Wigan Athletic 1-0
Just a few days after qualifying for their first cup final in the Carling Cup, Wigan could not produce another heroic display as they were beaten by Greater Manchester rivals City.
Wigan were producing some stern defending that frustrated City for 84 minutes of the match, but Andy Cole finally broke the deadlock, firing past goalkeeper John Filan after a good pass from Bradley Wright-Phillips.
West Ham United - Blackburn Rovers 4-2
West Ham were victorious in the day's most thrilling tie as they defeated Rovers at Upton Park, although it was Mark Hughes' men who took the lead within the first minute as David Bentley tapped home.
Teddy Sheringham was able to equalize for the home side from the penalty spot in the 33rd minute and Matthew Etherington fired West Ham into the lead four minutes later from inside the area.
Zurab Khizanishvili, who earlier conceded the penalty for a foul on Bobby Zamora, actually extended the lead further for the Hammers in the 59th minute when he misguided the ball into his own net. Lucas Neill's goal six minutes later was consolation for the visitors.
Aston Villa - Port Vale 3-1
League One Port Vale were no match for Villa and Milan Baros on Saturday, although it took the home side a while to get on the scoreboard.
The Czech striker finally gave Villa the lead in the 70th minute, firing into the net from a sharp angle after being put through by Kevin Phillips, and he doubled the lead four minutes later with a tap in off skipper Olof Mellberg's header.
Vale got a goal back through Nathan Lowndes in the 85th minute to keep fans on the edge of their seats, but Steven Davis scored late on to ensure Villa went through.
Colchester United - Derby County 3-1
League One Colchester produced an upset as they dispatched Championship strugglers Derby thanks to a double by Neil Danns, who fired the U's into the lead just before the interval with a cracker.
In the 52nd minute, the home side found themselves two goals up as Danns capitalized on a defensive lapse by the Rams to put in the net again after an initial effort by Richard Garcia was stopped.
Garcia gave Colchester a 3-0 lead on 59 minutes with a header after goalkeeper Lee Camp parried a cross toward goal. Tommy Smith's penalty with 15 minutes to go was the only highlight for Derby on the day.
Cheltenham Town - Newcastle United 0-2
Perhaps some pressure on Graeme Souness was eased as Newcastle progressed to the fifth round of the FA Cup with an expected win at League Two side Cheltenham.
Michael Chopra fired the Magpies into the lead in the 41st minute with a close-range header after an effort Celestine Babayaro came back off Town goalkeeper Shane Higgs.
Two minutes later, the Tynesiders doubled their lead through Scott Parker who unknowingly deflected a Jerry Gill clearance into the net for his first goal with Newcastle.
Charlton Athletic - Leyton Orient 2-1
It was not to be another Premiership upset for League Two side Leyton Orient as they fell to Charlton at the Valley thanks to a late winner.
The Addicks took the lead in the sixth minute as Jonathan Fortune hit a diving header off of Darren Ambrose's cross to give the home side a 1-0 lead, but Orient found themselves level in the 53rd minute when Lee Steele hit a weak toe-poke that somehow managed to squeak beneath goalkeeper Thomas Myhre.
It appeared as if the match was headed for a replay until Joey Bothroyd's free kick late on took a deflection en route to the Orient net to snatch a dramatic winner.
Reading - Birmingham City 1-1
Championship leaders Reading nearly caused another Premiership upset, but a David Dunn goal allowed Birmingham City to force a replay.
Shane Long put the home side in front at the Madejski Stadium in the 31st minute, converting a pass from James Harper at the near post, but Dunn volleyed past Graham Stack in the 67th minute after Chris Sutton flicked on for Dunn to score.
Coventry City - Middlesbrough 1-1
Championship side Coventry were the better side against Premiership relegation candidates Middlesbrough and the Sky Blues held their ground to earn a replay at the Riverside.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink fired the Teessiders into the lead just after the second-half restart, volleying home a flick-on by Yakubu.
However, the home side fought back and got a deserved equalizer eight minutes later as Stern John hit a nice volley of his own past Mark Schwarzer after Matthew Bates failed to clear a bouncing ball in the area.
Leicster City - Southampton 0-1
It was a late winner for Southampton as George Burley's Saints defeated Leicester at the Walkers Stadium to advance to the FA Cup fifth round.
Trinidad & Tobago international Kenwyne Jones hit a bullet past goalkeeper Rab Douglas after a failed clearance by Patrick Gerrbrand in second-half injury time to allow the visitors to progress.
Preston North End - Crystal Palace 1-1
In a battle of two teams battling for play-off spots in the Championship, Crystal Palace failed to beat an under-strength Preston side at Deepdale and will go to a replay at Selhurst Park.
Andy Johnson put the Eagles in front just eight minutes in, firing past Carlo Nash from inside the area after a defensive error by Youl Mawene, but Brian O'Neil equalized for the home side in the 27th minute with a header off of Graham Alexander's cross.
Stoke City - Walsall 2-1
The goals came in quick succession at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday and it was Championship side Stoke who were victorious over League One outfit Walsall.
Mamady Sidibe put the home side Potters in front just before the half-time interval with a shot from about 13 yards out, and the lead was doubled four minutes after the restart as Luke Chadwick hit a rocket high into the net.
Kevin James' tap-in goal two minutes later brought Walsall back into the match, but Stoke stood their ground and moved on to the next round.
