LONDON (AP) — Non-league Kidderminster will take on Premier League struggler Sunderland in the FA Cup fourth round after beating Peterborough 3-2 Tuesday, while Fulham advanced with a 3-0 defeat of Norwich.

Fifth-tier Kidderminster, which shares the FA Cup record for a non-league team after reaching as far as the fifth round in 1994, came from behind after Tommy Rowe opened the scoring for the League One club on a night of replays.

Goals from Michael Gash and Jack Byrne within the space of five minutes after the restart put Kidderminster in front and Joe Lolley sealed victory after Britt Assombalonga had leveled for the hosts. The sides drew 0-0 earlier this month.

After a poor run of league form that has left it 16th in the standings, Fulham returned to winning ways courtesy of goals from Darren Bent, Ashkan Dejagah and Steve Sidwell in the only all-Premier League replay. Their earlier tie had finished 1-1.

Fulham next will travel to League One side Sheffield United.

Wigan, which was relegated from the Premier League after winning the cup last May, trailed 1-0 in the 79th minute against MK Dons, but an equalizer from Nick Powell paved the way for a 3-1 win after extra time.

Fifth-tier Macclesfield, the lowest-ranked team left in the competition, had its run abruptly ended by Sheffield Wednesday in a 4-1 defeat at Hillsborough.

Elsewhere, Watford defeated Bristol City 2-0 and Birmingham beat Bristol Rovers 3-0, while Championship club Bournemouth earned a prestigious tie at Liverpool after routing Burton Albion 4-1.
