LONDON (AP) -- West Brom thrashed fifth-tier Gateshead 7-0 in Tony Pulis' first game as manager in the FA Cup third round on Saturday, while seventh-tier Blyth surrendered a two goal lead to lose 3-2 against second-division Birmingham.

Saido Berahino fired four goals for West Brom. Chris Brunt, Victor Anichebe and James Morrison also scored.

Blyth looked set to overcome a five-tier difference and cause the upset of the day against Birmingham when captain Robbie Dale scored twice in six first-half minutes.

But Birmingham replied with three goals in six minutes in the second half. Lee Novak netted on 52 and Wes Thomas struck on 55 and 58 to secure victory.

Swansea routed fourth-tier Tranmere 6-2, and Leicester beat fellow Premier League side Newcastle 1-0, Leonardo Ulloa scoring.
