League One Rochdale fought back to earn an FA Cup third-round replay against Premier League side Newcastle United with a 1-1 draw at Spotland.

The Magpies took the lead when Paraguay striker Miguel Almiron clinically finished from Christian Atsu’s smart cutback.

Despite enjoying the bulk of possession and chances, Newcastle were unable to find second goal as they lost Almiron and Yoshinori Muto to injury.

Dale pushed for an equaliser and 40-year-old substitute Aaron Wilbraham levelled with a close-range finish with 11 minutes left.

Fellow Premier League side Burnley secured their place in the fourth round with a comfortable 4-2 victory over League One Peterborough at Turf Moor.

The Clarets raced into a 3-0 lead with goals from Jay Rodriguez, Erik Pieters and Jeff Hendrick, before Ivan Toney pulled one back just before half-time.

Rodriguez notched his second of the game seven minutes into the second half, with Ricky Jade-Jones also on target for Posh.
