Newcastle United have crashed out of the FA cup this afternoon against lower league opposition.

The Magpies were beaten 3-0 by League One side Oxford at the Kassam Stadium in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Newcastle have not progressed beyond the fourth round since 2006.

Kane Hemmings put the Sky Bet League One outfit in front two minutes into the second half with his 13th goal of the season.

Aleksandar Mitrovic passed up the chance to equalise on 67 minutes when his penalty was saved by U's goalkeeper Simon Eastwood, before further home goals from Curtis Nelson and Toni Martinez sealed the shock result.

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez made nine changes to the team which hammered Rotherham 4-0 last weekend, with only Isaac Hayden and Ayoze Perez keeping their places.

  • Goals: Hemmings 47, Nelson 79, Martinez 87
