Fulham beat Wolves on penalties to reach the FA Cup fourth round as the hosts honoured former owner Sir Jack Hayward.

The 91-year-old, who owned Wolves for 17 years before selling in 2007, passed away on Tuesday with the club holding a minute’s silence and players wearing black armbands.

On the pitch, Matt Doherty’s miss in the shoot-out proved decisive as Fulham won 5-3 on penalties after a 3-3 draw.

Fulham striker Ross McCormack had scored a 120th-minute penalty to cancel out Dave Edwards’ earlier extra-time strike.

Three goals in five second-half minutes saw Rajiv van La Parra and Edwards fire Wolves in front before Cauley Woodrow made it 2-2.

Woodrow had nodded Fulham ahead before the late drama and they will go to Sunderland in the next round.

West Ham will head to Bristol City after the League One promotion hopefuls saw off Doncaster 2-0 at Ashton Gate courtesy of a brace from Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.

The 24-year-old midfielder first followed up on the rebound after an Aden Flint header was beaten away by Marko Marosi in the 36th minute, before firing home with a superb finish in the 79th minute.

Chesterfield will next face Derby after seeing off Scunthorpe 2-0 at the Proact Stadium.

After a goalless 90 minutes, Sam Clucas struck either side of the extra-time interval to take his tally to seven for the season and set up a first meeting with Derby since 1986.
