The Bristol City run in the FA Cup is continuing for at least one more game, with a replay needed, after the third round draw with West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday.

After a goalless first half the game burst into life when Saido Berahino came off the bench to put West Brom ahead but Jonathan Kodjia soon headed Bristol City level.

Kieran Agard came off the bench to finish with a tap in after Luke Freedman had seen his effort saved to put Bristol City ahead with just seven-minutes left, which looked likely to be enough until James Morrison scored with literally the last kick of the game.

Kodjia had the best chance for City ahead of the West Brom opener, which came shortly before the opener from the Baggies as the game exploded into life in the final 23-minutes.

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 draw we know our name will be in that pot for the draw for the next round, which takes place on Monday night and will be taken as long as the replay is won!
