Everton avoided an FA Cup third round upset in Gloucestershire as they eased past League Two high-flyers Cheltenham on Monday.

Nikica Jelavic opened the scoring in the 12th minute when he pounced on Marouane Fellaini's rebounded effort and Leighton Baines converted a penalty shortly after as the Premier League side led 2-0 at half-time.

Leon Osman made it 3-0 within minutes of the restart before Russell Penn pulled one back for Cheltenham.

But Seamus Coleman restored the three-goal cushion moments later and Fellaini rounded off the scoring just before the end as Victor Anichebe provided assists for both goals.

Everton will travel to either Bolton or Sunderland in the fourth round at the end of January.

Referee: Kevin Friend

19.28: Darron Gibson is out with a thigh strain for Everton as Moyes seeks to avoid what would surely be the shock of the tournament so far.

The Toffees have been in tremendous form so far this season, and are on course for a top four finish in the Premier League.

19.25: Cheltenham manager Mark Yates has called upon Darren Carter, who shook off a knock to be fit for the tie. We're around 20 minutes from KO, folks.

19.22: If you take a glance at the little green box to the left, you'll see that the teams are in.

David Moyes isn't taking the trip to Cheltenham as a given, and has opted for a full-strength line-up, including star performers this season Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines.

19.15: Welcome to Sportsmail's coverage of the final third round FA Cup tie of the weekend. A few of the teams have already slipped on a banana skin, and Cheltenham will be hoping Everton's Premier League stars will be the next to bow out.

The Toffees' cross-city rivals Liverpool held on yesterday to beat Non-League Mansfield – only after a suspect Luis Suarez goal as Luton Town rolled Wolves over to set up a tie with Norwich in the next round.

Engineers beat Wanderers in repeat of 1872 FA Cup final

Engineers steamroll Wanderers 7-1 in repeat of first ever FA Cup final at The Oval… 140 years after the original

Who knows what Lieutenant Edmund Creswell would have made of it all Three times in the first 45 minutes of the replay of the 1872 Football Association Challenge Cup final officers from the Royal Engineers side he once represented went to ground and had a whinge.

Of course, it’s four months shy of 140 years since Lieutenant Creswell felt a fracture in his collarbone and carried on playing against Wanderers in that first edition of football’s oldest competition, now known as the FA Cup.

In a team of nine lieutenants and two captains, he was regarded as something of a ‘strong fellow’.

On Wednesday night, in the game's ceremonial
restaging at the same Oval cricket ground that hosted the original, it
was a little different.

Not least because Sapper Dean Ellis of the Engineers was allowed to take a throw-in without the threat of violence in the opening minute (back in the day a throw-in was awarded to whichever team retrieved the ball first) and there was no requirement to change ends with each goal.

The absence of the latter rule certainly saved some time – Engineers were in front through Lance Corporal Jay Hubbard after nine minutes and a further five ahead of the side managed by Bobby Gould by half time.

Daniel Flash pulled one back early in the second half with a finish Morton Betts would have been proud of – he scored Wanderers' winning goal on March 16, 1872, though Thomas Hooman later claimed in an interview with The Times that it was his goal – and the chants of 'we're going to win 7-6’ temporarily muffled Gould’s running battle with the referee.

As it turned out, Wanderers didn’t win 7-6; they lost 7-1 and Engineers were presented with the original trophy by West Ham chairman David Gold. The other Gould, a winner of the FA Cup as both a player and manager, beat the referee convincingly.

The Wanderers, once a team of England internationals educated at Harrow and now a 12th-tier side including an air steward and a Liberal Democrat councillor, will always have the bragging rights for winning the original tie 1-0. That was the first of their five FA Cup wins. The sixth might have to wait a while.
