WEST BROMWICH, England(AP) Substitute Simeon Jackson scored a late winner as Norwich beat West Bromwich Albion 2-1 Saturday to secure an FA Cup fifth-round spot for the first time in five years.

Jackson took advantage of an error by West Brom defender Craig Dawson after Marc-Antoine Fortune had equalized at the Hawthorns in the 54th.

Dawson was dispossessed inside his own box and Jackson drilled a low shot past Ben Foster into the far corner of the net with five minutes left.

Norwich captain Grant Holt's ninth goal of the season in the 35th had separated the sides at half time.

Norwich goalkeeper Jed Steer impressed on his debut with the 19-year-old making several fine saves.
