Malbranque struck twice from the penalty spot, either side of a neat right-foot shot, all his goals arriving in the second half.

First Division Stoke saw off Bournemouth by the same scoreline, the Third Division side reduced to 10 men following a red card for goalkeeper Chris Tardif.

The major fourth round shocks were reserved exclusively for Saturday's matches.
