London - Holders Portsmouth and fellow Premier League side West Bromwich Albion both reached the fourth round of the English FA Cup after comfortable victories Tuesday in their third-round replays.

Wolverhampton Wanderers, Burnley, Millwall, Swansea, Sheffield United and Charlton Athletic all advanced, while Cheltenham Town and Doncaster Rovers will have to replay after a goalless draw.
