Steven Thompson struck twice as Burnley knocked West Brom out of the FA Cup to book a fifth-round trip to Cardiff or Arsenal following the 3-1 victory.

Winger Wade Elliott opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time with a superb 20-yard volley and Thompson rifled in a second seven minutes after the restart at a bitterly cold Turf Moor.

Albion were given hope by Gianni Zuiverloon's sweet 60th-minute strike before Thompson netted again to confirm Burnley's fourth Barclays Premier League scalp of the season.
