Nottingham Forest secured a thrilling 3-2 victory over Blackpool in their FA Cup third-round replay, with Chris Wood's extra-time strike proving decisive. Premier League debutant Andrew Omobamidele and Danilo had Forest in control, but Albie Morgan and substitute Kyle Joseph leveled the score. Forest's Orel Mangala cleared off the line, and in the 110th minute, Ryan Yates' cross set up Wood's winner, earning them a fourth-round clash with Bristol City on January 26.

Meanwhile, Andre Gomes' superb free-kick secured Everton a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace in their third-round replay. The first-half was quiet, but Gomes' curling effort three minutes before the break set up a fourth-round clash with Luton Town. Everton's first direct free-kick goal in 196 matches, since Lucas Digne's effort in August 2019. Joao Virginia's crucial save denied Palace, and Everton controlled the second half, securing their second win over Palace this season.
