Five Canaries in action

CAMERON Norman's Woking continued their impressive Vanarama National League form on Saturday as they ran out 3-1 victors away to Wrexham.

Home goalkeeper Rhys Taylor inadvertently deflected Keiran Murtagh's shot into his own net after 13 minutes, only for Dominic Vose to fire the Welsh side level soon after.

However, Woking duo Joe Quigley and Bruno Andrade both struck after the interval to help guide the visitors to a deserved three points.

Versatile City Under-21s player Norman completed 90 minutes as Woking won for the seventh time in nine league matches, lifting them to within a point of the play-offs.

Meanwhile, winger Josh Murphy played an hour for MK Dons as they salvaged an Emirates FA Cup third round replay against Northampton Town courtesy of a 2-2 draw.

An early Richard Cresswell own-goal put the Dons in front, before hosts Northampton turned the tie after half-time thanks to two goals from Ricky Holmes.

With time running out, Nicky Maynard netted an equaliser on 82 minutes, giving Karl Robinson's men a second chance to progress past the Cobblers.

One side definitively into the fourth round is Colchester United, who overcame Sky Bet Championship outfit Charlton Athletic 2-1 at home.

Goalkeeper Jake Kean made his U's debut in the game as first half goals from George Moncur and Marvin Sordell proved enough to decide the tie, despite Reza Ghoochannejhad's late strike.

Over the border, Carlton Morris featured as a late substitute as Hamilton Academical suffered a Scottish Cup shock at League Two side Annan Athletic.

The hosts progressed to the fourth round courtesy of a surprise 4-1 win over their Scottish Premiership counterparts, with Morris coming off the bench in the 71st minute.

Finally, Ricky van Wolfswinkel played the closing 20 minutes on Saturday as Real Betis went down 1-0 away to Getafe in Spain's La Liga.
