This counts as cup run for Newcastle United - and even under-fire record signing Joelinton scored.

Steve Bruce's rampant side progress to a tie at home to Oxford United after Miguel Almiron grabbing his third goal in as many games.

United now have a great chance to progress beyond the 4th round for the first time in 13 years.

Owner Mike Ashley, the man who once decreed the cups were not a priority for the club, watched his first game of the season from the stands, and will have noted the positivity around the ground.

He was on Tyneside to discuss January transfers with Steve Bruce... and was given a first class demonstration of the benefits of signing quality by match winner Almiron, a £20m buy a year ago.

Almiron was again on the score sheet for Newcastle

The unusually happy St James' Park crowd, kids in for a fiver, even chanted Steve Bruce's name for the first time.

They saw Brazilian £40m front man Joelinton score a goal – only his second since arriving in the summer. It was United's fourth of the evening set up by debutant Tom Allan's excellent wing play.

Bruce believes a cup run can lift Newcastle – he led Hull to the final in 2014 - and his side responded to their manager's desire.

Rochdale's spirited challenge was killed off quickly as Newcastle scored three goals in nine first half minutes.

The United boss picked a strong starting line up, handing Matt Ritchie his first start since August, and the spiky midfielder delivered two early goal assists.

Ritchie's dangerous cross behind the League One defence forced Dale's Eoghan O'Connell to slide in for a clearance, with Joelinton luring for a tap in. Instead he smashed the ball past his own keeper Robert Sanchez.

Ritchie, who's been out after ankle surgery, then delivered a cross for Matty Longstaff to control, via a defenders head, and coolly stroke home.

The young midfielder is impressing this season alongside his brother, and both are awaiting new contract offers from Ashley.

The top flight side moved the ball quickly wearing down Rochdale, and went three up when Almiron got his fourth of the season.

The Paraguayan has been United's bright spark this year and his hard work for the team is now being rewarded with goals.

This one was presented by a mistake from keeper Robert Sanchez, who mistakenly passed to him. His finish was crisp and confident.

Sanchez was hooked at half time by boss Brian Barry-Murphy.

Dale started competitively with some snappy pressing forcing mistakes, and with a decent shot from Jimmy Keohane. But they soon ran out of ideas.

All that was missing for Newcastle was a goal from mis-firing striker Joelinton and he delivered in the 82 minute, a good finish from Allan's cross.

Amazingly Newcastle have not reached the quarter final since 2006, and now fancy their chances of creating some excitement for their fans.

“We can't win the Premier League, so why not have a go at the cup,” said Bruce.

Shrewsbury 1-0 Bristol City: Late Aaron Pierre winner hands Shrews glamour tie vs Liverpool

Aaron Pierre scored a sensational late long-range winner to set-up a money-spinning glamour tie at home to Liverpool .

The defender's heroics settled the tie which was poised to go to extra-time.

Sam Ricketts' League One hosts can now look forward to a televised visit from the Premier League leaders on Sunday January 26.

Championship Bristol City had their chances but showed why they are trying to sign Arsenal's England U21 striker Eddie Nketiah on loan.

City are desperate to beat off competition from Aston Villa, Norwich, Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest to sign the 20-year-old on loan.

This replay underlined why as City's strikers like Famara Diedhiou badly mis-fired.

Aaron Pierre celebrates his late winner

But Pierre clinically buried a low left-foot shot from 25 yards into the bottom corner in the 89th minute.

Earlier Town keeper Joe Murphy had to dive to his right in the eighth minute to palm away a piledriver from Josh Brownhill.

Andreas Weimann then had a sight of goal but miscued in the home penalty area.

The visitors nearly took the lead in the 22nd minute when Nathan Baker's header came back off the far post.

At the other end Town skipper Ollie Norburn had a shot deflected just wide.

And striker Daniel Udoh, leading the line on his own, forced keeper Daniel Bentley into good save with a left-foot shot from the top of the box.

But Robins striker Diedhiou blew a great chance to break the deadlock in the 44th minute when he raced clear and hit a left-foot shot over.

Diedhiou failed to hit the target again soon after the re-start with a low shot across goal.

But Shrewsbury striker Callum Lang almost scored seconds after coming on in the 70th minute.

His close-range header was superbly saved by keeper Bentley from Shaun Whalley's cross.

And Shrewsbury finished strongly to clinch a tie with Liverpool which could bank the club over £300,000.

Love Island meltdown as ITV Hub goes down just before dramatic confrontation

Love Island meltdown as ITV Hub goes down just before dramatic confrontation

Love Island fans went into meltdown tonight when ITV Hub went down mid-episode.

The ITV streaming service went down for around ten minutes during one of the most explosive moments of the series so far - leaving viewers and Mirror Online staff fuming.

There was a horrifically awkward confrontation between all of the girls after the twins arrived back from their double date with their new men.

After Eve Gale clashed with seething Shaughna Phillips over Callum Jones there was an incredibly tense silence.

Mike Boateng then came in to take Leanne Amaning for a chat about where they stand - but the video cut out.

Mike was just about to confront Leanne when the feed went down

All viewers could see was an apology message in front of a picture of new host Laura Whitmore .

It read: "Sorry! This video isn't available right now. Check out our Shows Section for more great programmes."

Desperate viewers were forced to keep up to date by checking tweets on the Love Island hashtag.

You hate to see it
The crucial moment was missed

Furious Love Island viewers flocked to Twitter to express their outrage while their feed was down.

One fan tweeted: "ITV hub crashes for 10 minutes just to have the nerve to play ads when it works again f**k offff"

"Ok what was the chat with Leanne and Mike about since itv hub wants to start messing," added another.

A third said: "My itv hub just disconnected??? do you want me to riot"

""We’re sorry, something went wrong” f**k off itv hub ruined my tuesday," said a fourth.

This comes on a dramatic day as Ollie Williams decided to leave the villa after just three days.

Ollie confessed he is still in love with someone else and has feelings for his ex.

A Love Island spokesperson confirmed that Ollie made the decision to leave the Love Island villa.

Explaining his reasons for leaving in the Beach Hut, Ollie said: "I have to be honest with myself, and everyone, that I do still love someone else… I have to follow my heart in this scenario and it would be wrong for me to ignore these feelings.

"At the end of the day, this is Love Island and it’s about finding love. If I carried on anything with Paige, or any other girl that might come into the villa, it wouldn’t be fair on them."

*Love Island airs tonight on ITV2 at 9pm
