Notts County produced an FA Cup replay shock with a 2-0 win at Premier League Wigan Athletic on Tuesday to earn a place in the fifth round.

The League Two side bridged a gap of 59 positions in English league football to stun Wigan with a Stephen Hunt header and an own goal by Gary Caldwell - both goals coming in three minutes in the second half.

Another fourth round replay also produced a shock with Championship Crystal Palace, who were recently plunged into a relegation dogfight after a 10-point deduction for going into administration, ousted top-flight Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-1 at Selhurst Park.

Danny Butterfield, whose nominal position is as a full-back and who had scored once in 6-and-a-half years, netted a second-half hat-trick in just 6 minutes for Palace who will take on Aston Villa for a place in the quarter-finals. Notts County's reward for their victory over Wigan is another crack at Premier League opposition in the shape of Fulham.

Spurs travel to Leeds on Wednesday night to complete the draw.
