Fulham, with Carlos Bocanegra and Clint Dempsey, was also embarrassed, but not eliminated, when the EPL club tied, 2-2, with third-tier Bristol.

Eddie Lewis went the full 90 as Derby, the EPL's last-place team, tied second-tier Sheffield Wednesday, 2-2. Benny Feilhaber stayed on the bench for Derby.

With goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann, resting Reading tied fellow EPL club Tottenham, 2-2. Convey was head-butted during an altercation with Tom Huddlestone, who was red-carded while the American received a yellow.

Jonathan Spector played the second half for EPL club West Ham as it tied league rival Manchester City.

Jay DeMerit went the full 90 for second-tier Watford in its 2-0 win over league rival Crystal Palace.
