The first FA Cup match of the day saw an upset as Newcastle went out 2-0 to npower Championship Brighton at Amex Stadium. The Seagulls repeated last season's cup heroics by dumping an under-strength Newcastle out of the competition with Andrea Orlandi supplying an outstanding opener.

The first-half strike was born out of Wayne Bridge's willingness to chase a seemingly lost cause, but it was Orlandi's touch, turn and fine shot that stole the show.

The second was delivered by substitute Will Hoskins, who tucked home David Lopez's defence-splitting pass, as the play-off hopefuls completed a comfortable win. Newcastle were further frustrated by captain Shola Ameobi's second-half sending off.

Ameobi was deeply unlucky to receive the second yellow from referee Lee Probert and will miss Saturday's match against Norwich. Two goals in the last five minutes by Matthew Barnes-Homer saw Conference side Macclesfield claim a 2-1 win over Championship leaders Cardiff.

The Bluebirds went ahead when Nathaniel Jarvis forced the ball home from close range but Macclesfield leveled when Barnes-Homer slotted into the centre of the goal with five minutes to go.

The game was turned completely on its head when Barnes-Homer scored from the penalty spot with two minutes to go after he had been fouled by Jarvis.

Luton had to endure nine minutes of injury time to send Wolves out of the competition.

Alex Lawless fired the Hatters ahead just 34 seconds into the second half as he lashed an unstoppable volley home.

Robbie Simpson scored twice as League One Oldham won 3-1 at Nottingham Forest.

Matt Smith's 13th-minute own goal put the hosts in front but the Latics leveled with a shot from distance by Simpson.

Simpson headed home four minutes later and things got worse for Forest.

Danny Collins was given a straight red card for a foul on Matt Smith and from the resulting free-kick Jose Baxter made it 3-1.

Bournemouth had to settle for a replay against Wigan after a 1-1 draw at the DW Stadium

The League One side took the lead four minutes before the break thanks to a fine goal by Eunan O'Kane.

However, the Premier League side leveled through a fortuitous penalty with Jordi Gomez's spot-kick parried by the keeper but the midfielder pounced on the rebound to slot home with 20 minutes left.

A stoppage-time goal by Nick Proschwitz saw Hull scrape a 1-1 draw against Leyton Orient.

The League One side went ahead with 12 minutes to go when Dean Cox's cross was met with a bullet header by David Mooney.

However, Proschwitz's downward header earned a replay for the Championship high-flyers.

Fulham needed an equalizer 10 minutes from time to earn a 1-1 draw at home to Blackpool.

Ludovic Silvestre put the Seasiders ahead with half an hour to go when he fired home a 25-yard shot.

However, Robert Harris' clearance from Bryan Ruiz's corner could only find Giorgos Karagounis on the edge of the box and he looped a volley into the net.
