Ryan Sessegnon became one of the youngest goalscorers in FA Cup history with the winner in Fulham's 2-1 victory at Cardiff.
The 16-year-old tapped home from close range as Fulham came from behind to win, with Stefan Johansen having cancelled out Anthony Pilkington's deflected free-kick.
The early 11.30am kick-off had persuaded many supporters to stay at home, and there was a low-key atmosphere which did not help either side.
Cardiff got an early break with an eighth-minute free-kick 25 yards out and Pilkington's strike hit Lucas Piazon on the shoulder to wrong-foot Marcus Bettinelli.
Parity was restored within six minutes when Ryan Fredericks beat Joe Bennett to reach the by-line, and his cross was sent into the roof as Johansen marked his 26th birthday in style.
Full-back Fredericks was a constant attacking outlet down the right and he left Bennett trailing to deliver a 33rd-minute cross which this time Tom Cairney met.
Cairney placed his shot onto the crossbar, but Sessegnon was unmarked to touch home the rebound for his third senior goal.
Fulham continued to dominate possession in the second half, even if scoring opportunities were seldom.
Murphy made a full-length stop to deny Sone Aluko in the closing stages, but Fulham comfortably saw through a job well done.

Cardiff City defender Sol Bamba has been charged by the FA following the outburst that saw him sent off during his side’s 1-1 draw at Ipswich Town.
Bamba has already been handed a two-game ban for the red card he received in the game but that now could be extended following the outcome of a Football Association disciplinary panel.
The 31-year-old apologised to fans and the club following the game after his reaction to tackle made on him and subsequent altercation with manager Neil Warnock.
In a statement on their website, the FA said:
“Souleymane Bamba has been charged by The FA in relation to Cardiff City’s game at Ipswich Town on 10 December 2016.
“It is alleged that his language and/or behaviour in or around the 69th minute of the fixture was abusive and/or insulting and/or threatening and is considered sufficiently serious to warrant an additional sanction.
“He has until 6pm on 16 December 2016 to respond to the charge."
Craig Bellamy has returned to Cardiff City as the club's new Player Development Manager.
The club confirmed the appointment on their website.
According to the Bluebirds' website, Craig's role will be to oversee the development of younger players on and off the field.
CEO Ken Choo said Bellamy was "the only candidate".
The Club has recently undertaken an internal restructure of its Academy and Development programmes; with this firmly in mind, it's felt that having somebody of Craig's stature in this role can be of huge significance to us moving forward.
Craig's experience and knowledge of the game speaks for itself and we felt he was the only candidate we wanted to take this critical new position at the Club. I’m delighted to have Craig back with us here at Cardiff City Stadium. He's part of the Cardiff City family and I'm thrilled he's taken the opportunity to begin his coaching career with us after his fantastic times here as a player.
Speaking to cardiffcityfc.co.uk, Craig Bellamy described his new appointment as a "fantastic honour".
Neil Warnock praised the heart and commitment of his Cardiff side after they maintained their unbeaten start to his managerial tenure with a 1-1 Sky Bet Championship draw with Sheffield Wednesday.
Having kicked off his reign with victory over Bristol City, the Bluebirds had been on course to beat another side chasing promotion when Peter Whittingham's free-kick gave them a ninth-minute lead.
But the Owls dominated possession and an improved second-half showing got its reward when Daniel Pudil scored his first goal since December 10 minutes after the break.
I think four points from two games is fabulous really. We had to hang in there but you have to do that against a good side like Sheffield Wednesday.
I am still disappointed with the goal we conceded, it was poor, but I was really pleased with the effort from the lads.
We were not quite firing in attack but you will have games like that in the Championship and we live to fight another day.
