Newcastle United were held to a shock 1-1 draw by League One side Rochdale in the FA Cup third round on Saturday afternoon, as substitute Aaron Wilbraham's late equaliser snatched a replay for the plucky hosts.
The Premier League giants took the lead in the 17th minute, when Miguel Almiron rifled home from the left-hand side of the penalty area, and Steve Bruce's men remained in control for large parts of the game.
40-year-old WIlbraham caused a storm in the 79th minute however, smashing the ball beyond Martin Dubravka from close range to earn a well-deserved replay at St. James' Park for Rochdale.
Fellow Premier League side Burnley coasted to a 4-2 victory over their League One opponents Peterborough United, thanks to a brace from Jay Rodriguez, and strikes by Erik Pieters and midfielder Jeff Hendrick.
Meanwhile, Gary Rowett's Millwall booked their place in the fourth round by earning a comfortable 3-0 win over Newport County, after a Conor Mahoney penalty and a Tom Bradshaw lob added to Matt Smith's first-half effort.
League One side Rotherham United suffered last-gasp heartbreak against Hull City at the New York Stadium, having played over an hour with only ten men. Rotherham were on level terms when defender Adam Thompson saw red in the 24th minute, and despite the hosts taking a shock 2-1 lead through Kyle Vassell, a Tom Eaves hat-trick saw the Tigers earn a 3-2 win and progress at the expense of their brave opponents.
10-man Birmingham City battled to a late 2-1 victory over fellow Championship side Blackburn Rovers, when substitute Jeremie Bela fired a last-minute strike beyond goalkeeper Jayson Leutwiler to send the hosts into the next round.
Bristol City could only muster a 1-1 draw with Shrewsbury Town at Ashton Gate, meaning the lower-league visitors will be in the hat for the fourth round. Famara Diedhiou bagged a header on the half-hour mark to give the hosts the lead, but the Shrews fought back through Sean Goss to clinch a valuable replay at New Meadow.
