On-song Grigg back on fire again for sensational Wigan

On-song Grigg back on fire again for sensational Wigan

West Ham midfielder Masuaku faces a mandatory six-match ban after being sent off for spitting at Wigan's Nick Powell, an incident his manager, David Moyes, condemned as "despicable" and "unacceptable".

First, it was used to rule out an early West Brom goal from Craig Dawson for offside.

Swansea City have shown improvement under their new coach Carlos Carvalhal but were held at Notts County, while League Two side Coventry City booked a place in the fifth round with a win at MK Dons and Javi Gracia's first game in charge of Watford ended in defeat.

Yet the subject of the chorus "Will Grigg's On Fire." ensured on Saturday that his cult status was only likely to be reinvented as he fashioned a sensation in the FA Cup for third-tier side Wigan Athletic.

Firmino, though, hit the bar with his spot-kick and Albion manager Alan Pardew's angry features only changed once Joel Matip diverted a cross into his own net just before the break.

The Northern Ireland worldwide opened the scoring after just seven minutes and then added the second from the penalty spot on 62 minutes.

And with Wigan riding high at the top of League One, Grigg - who now has six FA Cup goals in just four matches this term - insists there is no reason why Paul Cook's men can not go hunting for both league and cup silverware this season.

"A lot of these boys have played against Premier League teams whether it's in cup matches or otherwise, so there is definitely no fear there". We deserved it and he will deserve everything he gets.

Leicester City won 5-1 at League One Peterborough thanks to two goals each from Fousseni Diabate on his debut and Kelechi Iheanacho.

Glenn Murray netted a 90th-minute victor as Brighton & Hove Albion snatched a 1-0 win at Championship side Middlesbrough.

League One side Rochdale earned a 2-2 draw at Championship side Millwall, who needed a 90th minute goal from Ben Thompson to secure a replay.

And after conquering holders Arsenal in the last round, Nottingham Forest went out with a 2-1 loss at fellow second-tier team Hull City, Jarrod Bowen scoring and providing an assist for Nouha Dicko.

An 80th-minute penalty from Billy Sharp gave Sheffield United a 1-0 win over Preston North End.
