West Brom 3-1 Leeds
West Brom produced a clinical display to ease into round four of the FA Cup and leave Leeds to concentrate solely on their Championship survival battle.

The visitors were the masters of their own downfall early on, failing to deal with Neil Clement's corner and allowing Paul McShane to fire in the opener.

And John Hartson made it 2-0 inside 15 minutes from Russell Hoult's long punt.

Kevin Phillips rolled in late on to make it three, before Paul Robinson sliced into his own net in injury time.

  • West Brom boss Tony Mowbray:
    "We can create and score goals, but we can also be pretty open and we probably conceded too many opportunities in the second half.

    "But the target before the kick-off was to get into the hat for the next round and we've achieved that, so I'm happy.

    "We're doing our best (to bring players in). But it's difficult in January - teams who are trying to bring players in are finding it's a seller's market."

  • Leeds manager Dennis Wise:
    "We had opportunities to score but we didn't defend as well as they did; they finished off chances, and unfortunately we didn't.

    "I think we're gradually improving and I can't argue with the way they performed in the second half, but the first-half display let us down.

    "Overall, I'm disappointed with the way we defended. We had chances to make it 3-3 or 4-3 but we never got close enough to them with our defending. You can't defend the way we did - and they know it."
