Saturday's FA Cup fourth round review

Bolton beat Swansea, Norwich win at West Brom and Stoke triumph too

Chris Eagles fires home for Bolton to earn them a 2-1 FA Cup win over Swansea City

Bolton Wanderers came from behind to beat Swansea City 2-1 in their all-Barclays Premier League clash and move into the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The visitors took the lead in the first half when Luke Moore clipped over Adam Bogdan, but Bolton levelled when ex-Swans midfielder Darren Pratley nodded home.

Bolton went ahead when Chris Eagles tapped in after Gerhard Tremmel saved from Martin Petrov, and though Swansea's Leroy Lita and Danny Graham both hit the woodwork, it ended 2-1.

In another all-top flight match, West Bromwich Albion were sent out of the competition after Norwich City scored a late winner at the Hawthorns.

Canaries striker Grant Holt fired his team into a first-half lead, but the Baggies equalised when Marc-Antoine Fortune struck from close range.

Norwich left it until the 85th minute to seal victory, substitute Simeon Jackson shooting in after a mistake from West Brom defender Craig Dawson.

Elsewhere, Stoke City booked their last-16 berth thanks to a 2-0 victory away at Championship side Derby County.

Cameron Jerome put the Potters ahead after only five minutes when he converted a Glenn Whelan cross from the left, and central defender Robert Huth wrapped it up nine minutes from time.

Alan Pardew's Newcastle United slipped to an unfortunate defeat away at Brighton in Saturday's late kick-off, with a Mike Williamson own goal sending the Magpies out.
