Joe Powell's double and Nathan Holland's strike secured West Ham United a place in the round of 16 with a 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest at Dagenham & Redbridge.

Powell struck twice in a seven-minute spell in the closing stages of the first half before former Everton midfielder Holland, who joined the club in January, wrapped things up in the final minute.
