Wigan dumped 10-man West Ham out of the FA Cup thanks to Will Grigg's double in a 2-0 fourth-round win at the DW Stadium.
Grigg gave League One Wigan the lead in the first half with a header, before Arthur Masuaku was dismissed for spitting at Nick Powell in the second period.
Northern Ireland striker Grigg doubled the 2013 winners' lead after the hour mark, meaning Paul Cook's side knock out Premier League opposition for the second time having seen off Bournemouth in the third round.
The draw for the fifth round will take place on Monday evening, while replays will be held on week commencing February 5.
Tottenham were fortunate to avoid a huge cup upset at Newport County, the League Two side 72 places below them, as Harry Kane grabbed a late equaliser in their 1-1 draw in Wales.
Kane scored his 30th goal of the season in all competitions eight minutes from time, cancelling out Padraig Amond's opener after 38 minutes.
New Watford manager Javi Gracia got off to a losing start, going down 1-0 at Southampton having taken over from sacked Marco Silva.
Jack Stephens scored the only goal of the game in the fourth minute at St Mary's after capitalising on Shane Long's rebounded effort inside the box, meaning Saints reach the fifth round for only the second time in eight years.
Brighton avoided a replay against Middlesbrough as Glenn Murray's stoppage-time goal gave them a 1-0 win at the Riverside, the second time the striker has saved the Seagulls late on after his late goal against Crystal Palace in the third round.
Premier League Huddersfield will have to go to a replay at Birmingham after they were pegged back 1-1 at the John Smith's Stadium.
Steven Mounie gave David Wagner's side the lead in the first half, but Lukas Jutkiewicz levelled nine minutes into the second half.
Swansea suffered the same fate at League One Notts County, despite going ahead through Luciano Narsingh's strike on the stroke of half-time.
But former Premier League striker Jon Stead levelled things up for Kevin Nolan's side after the hour mark, giving them a chance to reach the fifth round for only the second time this century.
League Two Coventry, the 1987 winners, won 1-0 at MK Dons through Maxime Biamou's strike in the 64th minute, meaning they will be in the fifth round for the first time since 2009.
Millwall saved a replay with a late leveller in the 2-2 draw with Rochdale through Ben Simpson's stoppage-time strike.
Rochdale looked to be heading into the fifth round as goals from Ian Henderson and Matt Done turned the game in their favour after Jed Wallace's early penalty for Millwall, but Simpson turned up with a last-gasp equaliser at The Den.
Elsewhere, Hull beat Nottingham Forest 2-1 in an all-Championship affair at the KC, with goals from Jarrod Bowen and Nouha Dicko, while Sheffield United saw off Preston 1-0 thanks to Billy Sharp's late penalty at Bramall Lane.
In Saturday's early kick-off, Leicester were 5-1 winners at Peterborough thanks to doubles from both Kelechi Iheanacho and Fousseni Diabate on his Foxes debut.
Wilfred Ndidi scored the fifth for Leicester, while Andrew Hughes got the consolation for the League One side.
In the late game on Saturday, West Brom dumped Liverpool out of the FA Cup after their chaotic 3-2 win at Anfield in the fourth round was dominated by VAR calls.
