The Hatters were one of two remaining non-league teams left in the competition but held their own against a Norwich team who ply their trade in the Premier League, with Scott Rendell scoring a late winner for Luton who are now into the last sixteen.

Meanwhile, MK Dons not only sprang a surprise at Loftus Road but also thrashed QPR on their own patch, with the League One side winning 4-2 in a match that they completely controlled.

Armand Traore’s own goal helped the Dons into an early lead before goals from Lowe, Harley and Potter made sure of an emphatic victory before late goals from Bothroyd and Fabio ensured there was some degree of respectability.

Manchester City were the first team into the fifth round of the FA Cup after a slender 1-0 win at Stoke thanks to Pablo Zabaleta’s late goal at the Britannia Stadium, while Manchester United cruised to an easy win against Fulham.

Everton avoided a shock by winning 2-1 at Bolton, while Arsenal will also feel confident of winning this trophy after a narrow 3-2 victory at Brighton.
