  • 96'

    FULL TIME - what a leap from Smith! Talk about hang-time - that was Ronaldo-esque! Bouzanis put Howard off, Smith rose highest and his goal has won Oldham a replay at Goodison! Fantastic.

  • 95'

    Amazing! Just amazing! Smith rises highest to bundle the ball home! Wild celebrations and Everton are stunned!

  • 94'


  • 94'

    Keeper challenges keeper but Howard punches behind!

  • 94'

    Croft wins a corner at the back stick. Great effort from Oldham. Keeper up!

  • 93'

    Duffy races straight to mark Smith as the long ball breaks for a a white shirt not a blue.

  • 92'

    Mirallas strays offside and Oldham can pump the ball long, but not before Everton make a change. Shane Duffy on for Jelavic.

  • 91'

    Smith nods on but Barnard can't collect it. Gibson hoofs clear.

  • 90'

    Four minutes added...

  • 89'

    Oh that was the chance! Tarkowski finds Simpson over the top, he chests down and fires on goal from 12 yards but Howard saves, then Simpson can only find the side-netting with the follow up. That was the moment....

  • 88'

    Howard does well twice, punching the first delivery, then grabbing the second at the near post.

  • 87'

    Barnard lets fly from 25 yards and a deflection from Jagielka spins it wide of the post. Corner.

  • 86'

    A thumping tackle from Gibson. Strong but ball winning, a good cup reducer. Odd not to see a foul given for it in this day and age.

  • 85'

    Time running out for Oldham. Almost time to go long for Smith every time.

  • 83'

    Phil Dowd isn't popular at the moment - Simpson is penalised for bumping Distin.

  • 82'

    but the game was nearly over! Jelavic found by Gibson is clean through but his left foot shot is lifted over the bar. Should have scored.

  • 81'

    a second wind for Oldham now - they are gearing up for a last gasp onslaught.

  • 80'

    Great chance for Oldham! Simpson makes space and reverses a pass for Smith who makes Howard save well from his powerful shot.

  • 79'

    Everton change: Pienaar makes way for Bryan Ovieo.

  • 77'

    Obita trots off and Robbie Simpson comes on.

  • 76'

    A free header for Osman from the corner - he lobs it up but Bouzanis claims over the top of Jagielka. Now Oldham win a corner.

  • 75'

    Oldham Athletic to win, with bet365  
    Everton to win, with bet365  

  • 75'

    Jelavic cuts inside but his shot is blocked by Mvoto. Game a bit more stretched now.

  • 73'

    Obita now suffering from cramp.

  • 72'

    Jelavic works space to cross round Mvoto but Mirallas can't meet it. Better from Everton.

  • 71'

    A bit of a scrappy passage in the game.

  • 69'

    Can Oldham fight back against their more illustrious opponents?

  • 68'

    Granada have just taken the lead against Barcelona.

  • 67'

    Baxter collects the clearance from a left wing cross but fires over on the half volley.

  • 66'

    Wesolowksi is replaced in midfield by Latics captain Dean Furman.

  • 65'

    An aimless ball into the box from Baxter. Need better delivery.

  • 63'

    Obita runs into Howard as he tries to bowl the ball out to Neville. Free kick.

  • 62'

    Oldham's fans are making good noise. There are a few fans behind the goal with their shirts off - a worrying trend.

  • 61'

    Here comes Matt Smith, who scored twice against Liverpool. Chris Iwelumo goes off.

  • 60'

    Oldham Athletic to win, with bet365  
    Everton to win, with bet365  

  • 60'

    A rare sight of goal for Oldham after Neville's mistake but Obita shoots from a very narrow angle.

  • 59'

    Oh it should have been 3-1. Osman gets a free header from Baines' corner and any contact on that would have resulted in a goal. The bend of the ball actually took it away from Osman - it was just out of his reach.

  • 58'

    Now a good tackle from Croft denies Baines a chance to cross. Excellent work.

  • 57'

    Baxter is tackled by Osman and Everton come away with the ball. Croft tracks back well and prevents a corner.

  • 56'

    Some lower league news - looks like Paul Ince is to be Blackpool's new manager. Wonder how his lad Tom feels?

  • 54'

    Oldham have to hang on here - they are wobbling at present. No purchase up front from Iwelumo now.

  • 53'

    Jelavic wrestles Tarkowski to the ground and hands Oldham a free kick.

  • 51'

    So nearly a cracker from Pienaar as he swapped passes with Fellaini. The South African feints, then shoots, but Bouzanis has it covered.

  • 50'

    That was hilarious really. Barnard was giving Jagielka a full on man hug as the defender headed home. The Oldham lad then fell directly on top of him as his team mates tried to get in to celebrate.

  • 49'

    Everton have come out like they mean business in this second half and Jagielka nods home as Barnard neglected trying to head the ball in favour of trying to wrestle Jags to the ground. The keeper came out too and still the defender managed to head home.

  • 48'

    GOAL Jagielka turns the ball home!

  • 47'

    Two crosses into the box from Everton, one from Baines is cut out before Bouzanis claims Fellaini's better effort.

  • 46'

    A change for Everton, Anichebe makes way for Mirallas, as we get under way again.


    If you missed any of today's action, cast your eye over our FA Cup wrap.


    Before Anichebe drew Everton level


    Jordan Obita puts Oldham in front

  • 45'

    HALF TIME - and a good 45 minutes of cup football it was too. Obita the main threat for the Latics, as evidence by the goal. Anichebe equalised and Everton grew into the game as it progressed.

  • 44'

    Goo break from Everton after Baines defended Obita's cross well. Pienaar feeds Anichebe who gets to the ball first but can't turn it home.

  • 43'

    Lovely story that Oldham are so skint they couldn't afford to buy any official FA Cup balls to practice with, so after knocking Forest out they asked to borrow theirs and got them, then did the same after Liverpool, and got them as well!

  • 42'

    A good old fashioned League Two shank from Tarkowski. Out of play under no pressure.

  • 41'

    Wasteful from Pienaar after he gets a break 30 yards from goal. His shot flies well over the bar.

  • 40'

    Fellaini flicks the corner on goal but it is blocked and cleared then as Neville put the ball back in the Belgian nods a looping header on top of the net.

  • 39'

    Brown concedes a corner as Neville crosses for Jelavic.

  • 38'

    Everton on top now and being allowed more time in possession.

  • 37'

    Baxter is ungainly as he stretches in on Pienaar. Free kick.

  • 35'

    Maybe settle into a better pattern is a better description.

  • 34'

    Fair to say the game has calmed down a little now.

  • 33'

    A few more fouls for aerial challenges now as Phil Dow gets a little whistle happy.

  • 32'

    Pienaar slides Jelavic through on goal but the striker was half a yard offside.

  • 30'

    Oldham Athletic to win, with bet365  
    Everton to win, with bet365  

  • 30'

    Baxter's free kick hits the wall then as Brown pumps it back in, Mvoto is penalised.

  • 29'

    Free kick given for handball against Distin as Iwelumo won a header. Good spot.

  • 28'

    Anichebe is penalised for a foul on Mvoto. That's a fierce battle so far.

  • 27'

    Worth repeating that stellar stat about Anichebe. Everton have never lost when he has scored.

  • 26'

    Oldham hit the post! Obita's shot is deflected off Fellaini, beats Howard but cannons off the upright before Croft blasts the rebound wide.

  • 25'

    the lead lasted 11 minutes and it is a fine finish from the striker. He leans into Mvoto after a knock down from Jelavic. Good goal.

  • 24'

    GOAL Anichebe fires Everton level!

  • 23'

    Croft stands up a ball for Iwelumo, who wins a flick, but Barnard was outside the area, not gambling.

  • 22'

    Pienaar gets a bang on the head from Brown's arm as they went up for an aerial ball.

  • 20'

    Pienaar tries to score from the tight angle but Brown nods clear at the near post.

  • 19'

    Fellaini gets into the box but it is all a bit congested, then as they recycle the ball Baines wins a free kick on the left side of the box.

  • 18'

    Good stat from the tele - Oldham haven't kept a clean sheet since December 8.

  • 17'

    Free kick won by Jelavic on the left and Gibson's ball flashes through the danger zone and out the other side without so much as a touch.

  • 16'

    The home fans are in fine voice now. Everton rattled.

  • 15'

    Oldham Athletic to win, with bet365  
    Everton to win, with bet365  

  • 15'

    Obita is on an emergency loan from Reading. This is the 19-year-old's first FA Cup game. What a story. He's on the deck now after a clip from Osman that was accidental.

  • 14'

    Incredible! Croft races away on a break from Everton's corner, tries a shot but drags it perfectly across the face for Obita, who turns home from four yards out. Super goal!

  • 13'

    GOAL Obita puts Oldham ahead!

  • 12'

    Baines takes it and caught it perfectly, Baxter rises to flick it over the bar. It may well have gone in without the touch.

  • 11'

    Osman wins a free kick right on the edge of the box and this is a real chance for Everton.

  • 10'

    Tony Hibbert is in among the away fans - a true man of the people.

  • 9'

    Grounds nearly finds Barnard with a ball over the top. Misjudgement from Distin.

  • 8'

    Very poor from Jelavic after Pienaar found him with a superb pass. He fails to control well, then tries a shot when he should have slipped it right to Osman.

  • 7'

    Gibson knocks the free kick wide for Neville but his cross is too close to Bouzanis and the keeper claims.

  • 6'

    Osman felled by Grounds. Free kick 40 yards from goal for Everton.

  • 5'

    Decent atmosphere in the ground though.

  • 4'

    They don't even have dugouts at Oldham, just seats next to the pitch in the open air.

  • 3'

    Chris Iwelumo up front for Oldham. He is a culprit of one of the worst misses of all time, for Scotland. Search for it and the radio commentary too.

  • 2'

    Bouzanis rushes out as Jelavic looks to head through on goal. Some indecision from Mvoto to create it.

  • 1'



    So, can Oldham repeat their heroics from the previous round?
