NOTTS COUNTY won at Sunderland, Stevenage beat Newcastle and Burton mauled Middlesbrough.
They were some of the results that caused shockwaves in English football two weekends ago.
In the Scottish Cup there was nothing of seismic proportions although Ayr, Peterhead and Ross County did their best to grab the headlines.
All three SFL sides travelled to SPL opposition and battled to 0-0 draws. Tonight they have the opportunity to complete the job and there is every chance at least one of them will progress to the fifth round.
Hibs, St Mirren and Dundee United face tricky replays after being held 0-0 first time out. A treble on their opponents pays around 100-1 and may only be considered by those lucky punters who took bookies to the cleaners with four EPL draws on Sunday.
McBookie.com go 6-4 no top-flight sides are knocked out tonight, 4-7 for one,
9-1 for two, 25-1 for three and go 80-1 all three exit in 90 minutes.
Draws in the three ties, forcing extra time, isn't out of the question but I have real concerns about Hibs and St Mirren.
Both are struggling near the foot of the SPL and the duo score as often as Susan Boyle.
The SPL sides should have the quality to rise above Second Division opponents but there was little of it in evidence in the original ties.
Ayr are 7-2 with Stan James on the draw no bet market and 1-2 with the same firm with a two-goal start which looks tempting.
Ayr have only failed to score once at Somerset this season and are 29-20 with Hills not to net. For one it's 11-8, two is 10-3, three 11-1 and four or more 28-1.
St Mirren have failed to net in their last four matches and by all accounts didn't create much against Peterhead in Paisley.
The Second Division men were further boosted by Saturday's 3-0 at home to Livingston and could be worth a risk at 4-1 at Chandler and Hills.
The draw is a best 13-5 with bodog while the Buddies are 8-11 with Ladbrokes.
Peterhead to win 1-0 pays 14-1 with bet365 and must be a possibility. Dundee United struggled against County without the banned David Goodwillie but the Scotland striker returns and could make the difference at Dingwall.
Holders United are a biggest 5-6 with Hills to win in regulation time. Elsewhere in the Cup I like on-form Stenny at home to Stranraer while Morton should beat Airdrie.
Partick Thistle hit Stirling for six and will be confident of flooring Falkirk at the second time of asking.
There are two matches in the SPL with Rangers trying to beat Inverness at the third time of asking. Both meetings this season have ended 1-1 and another pays 15-2 with Hills.
Rangers, a biggest 1-4 at Betfred, have won just three out of nine at home to ICT, but have netted seven without reply against Killie and Hamilton while Terry Butcher's men are in the middle of a form slump.
I reckon Walter Smith's men will edge home but Inverness, a best 14-1 with Hills, will have backers on the draw no bet market at 8-1 with the same firm.
Killie are losing players as fast as West Ham lose friends and I can see Hearts picking up the points at Rugby Park.
