The Addicks have been caught cold at the start of the second half - Dele Adebola has headed an equaliser for the Robins.

20:53 We're underway again in the FA Cup and Championship.

20:34 HALF-TIME: Burnley 1 West Brom 0.

20:34 HALF-TIME: Southampton 0 Sheffield United 1.

20:33 GOAL! Burnley 1 (Elliott 45) West Brom 0. It looks like Burnley might be on their way to another Premier League scalp - Wade Elliott has opened the scoring for the Clarets with a stunning strike on the stroke of half-time.

20:29 GOAL! Preston 1 (Parkin 43) Plymouth 1. Better news for another big striker - Preston's Jon Parkin has brought his side level against Plymouth.

20:27 RED CARD! Darius Henderson (Sheffield United). The Blades face a battle to hang on to their lead now - big striker Henderson has been given his marching orders for an alleged elbow.

20:23 GOAL! Southampton 0 Sheffield United 1 (Halford 35). The Championship goals are flying in now - former Colchester, Sunderland and Charlton defender Greg Halford has put the Blades in front at St Mary's.

20:22 GOAL! Wolves 1 Norwich City 1 (Croft 32). Don't count your chickens too soon, Wolves fans. Norwich have equalised with a strike from Lee Croft.

20:19 GOAL! Bristol City 0 Charlton 1 (Soares 29). A vital goal at Ashton Gate, as midfielder Tom Soares gives bottom club Charlton the lead in their clash against Bristol City.

Up for the Cup: Early action from tonight's FA Cup fourth round replay, as Burnley's Chris McCann tackles West Brom striker Jay Simpson.

20:14 GOAL! Wolves 1 (Ebanks-Blake 25) Norwich 0. The Championship leaders are on their way to going seven points clear at the top of the table - top scorer Sylvan Ebanks-Blake has found the net for the 18th time this season to put Wolves in front.

20:04 All fairly even at Turf Moor - both sides have forced early corners and enjoyed their fair share of possession, but the brightest thing on the pitch so far is West Brom's yellow kit.

19:58 GOAL! Preston 0 Plymouth 1 (Mackie 13). We've finally got the first goal of the evening from our featured matches and it's been scored by Plymouth - Jamie Mackie putting the Pilgrims ahead at Deepdale.

19:53 No early goals and nothing of any note to report so far - let's hope the brave souls on the terraces this evening are given some excitement to warm their cockles.

19:45 We're underway in the FA Cup and the Championship matches.

19:38 An unfortunate - albeit rather amusing - tale from League One tonight - Southend's match against Scunthorpe has been postponed just 20 MINUTES before kick-off after referee Keith Hill declared that a small patch of frozen turf near the touchline made it too dangerous for the game to go ahead - despite earlier pitch inspections giving the go-ahead. By all accounts, some of the devoted Scunthorpe fans who travelled through the snow to make it to Roots Hall even helped to clear the snow on the pitch - bet their journey home isn't the most enjoyable one.

19:30 Baggies boss Tony Mowbray has made six changes to his team following Saturday's 2-2 draw with Hull in the Premier League. Out go Meite, Robinson, Koren, Valero, Brunt and Morrison, and in come Cech, Kim, Dorrans, Teixeira, Bednar and Pele.

Teams:Burnley: Jensen, Alexander, Duff, Caldwell, Kalvenes, McDonald, Elliott, McCann, Blake, Paterson, Thompson. Subs: Penny, Carlisle, Gudjonsson, Akinbiyi, Mahon, Rodriguez, MacDonald.West Brom: Carson, Zuiverloon, Donk, Pele, Cech, Kim, Dorrans, Simpson, Filipe Teixeira, Fortune, Bednar. Subs: Kiely, Hoefkens, Robinson, Koren, Brunt, Martis, Morrison.

19:24 We were hoping to see Arsenal take on Cardiff in the FA Cup this evening, but the snow put paid to that one, so the biggest clash of the night sees West Brom take on cup giant-killers Burnley in their fourth round replay at Turf Moor, where the Baggies will be hoping to avoid the embarrassment endured by the likes of Fulham, Chelsea, Arsenal (and almost Tottenham) in the Carling Cup this season.

Four Championship clashes have also survived, as Bristol City host Charlton, Plymouth travel north to Preston, Southampton take on Sheffield United and leaders Wolves face Norwich City.

19:20 Good evening ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to our live coverage of tonight's matches that have managed to survive the adverse weather conditions. With London Transport still reeling from the fact that snow has actually fallen in the capital, I've had to hire a jet-ski and two huskies* in order to make it into the office this evening but, fear not, it's business as usual here, and we'll be bringing you all the action as it happens.

*No animals were harmed in my attempts to get to work today.
