West Bromwich Albion cruised into the fourth round of the FA Cup with a comfortable win over National League side Chesterfield in a replay.

The five-time winners doubled their lead through Tom Rogic three minutes after the restart and Jake Livermore soon made it 3-0 from a corner.

After Akwasi Asante hit the bar for the visitors, Jovan Malcolm added a fourth.

Albion will travel to Bristol City in the next round after the Robins beat Swansea City 2-1 after extra time on Tuesday.

Chesterfield and West Brom drew 3-3 in the initial tie 10 days ago, with the Championship club needing an injury-time equaliser from Brandon Thomas-Asante to force a replay - having led twice in the first half.

The Spireites are pushing for promotion back to the English Football League, but Paul Cook's men ultimately paid for defensive errors against a club who are in form and 70 places above them in the league pyramid.

The hosts made a fast start at The Hawthorns despite making 10 changes from their win at Luton Town on Saturday, as Grady Diangana had a goal ruled out in the third minute for a foul on Chesterfield keeper Lucas Covolan.

Swift, the only survivor from the weekend, broke the deadlock when a poor clearance by Jamie Grimes was headed into the box by Livermore and the midfielder brought the ball down smartly before curling a low left-footed shot past the outstretched hand of the keeper.

West Brom took control after the break as Rogic converted after Chesterfield failed to clear Adam Reach's cut-back, and then Livermore was left unmarked to control and hammer in on the half-volley in from Swift's short corner six minutes later.

The visitors almost pulled one back with eight minutes left, but Asante had an effort well saved by David Button and Tim Akinola saw his follow-up blocked before Asante then clattered the crossbar from close range.

Albion wrapped up the scoring in injury time when substitute Malcolm headed in Conor Townsend's cross for his first senior goal for the club.
