On a day which saw Sunderland, Newcastle, West Brom and Blackpool all suffer at the hands of lower league opposition Everton would surely have settled for just being in Sunday's Fourth Round draw.

But to negotiate a potentially tricky tie in the intimate surroundings of Glanford Park with a degree of style was even more pleasing for the FA Cup finalists of 2009.

Everton scored five and could have had more against their out of form opponents and captain for the day Leon Osman was delighted with the display against Ian Baraclough's side.

"The FA Cup is renowned for upsets and it doesn't really matter about your form going into it," Osman told evertontv.

"The FA Cup gives teams the chance to beat anyone on their day and we stood up to that challenge from Scunthorpe and came away with the victory.

"We had a taste of the FA Cup final a couple of years back and came close to winning it and we'd like to go that one step further," he added. 

First half goals from strikers Louis Saha and Jermaine Beckford gave the visitors a foot in the next round at the break before Michael O'Connor halved the advantage just moments after the restart.

But Everton's resolve was steely and Seamus Coleman, Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines all netted to confirm their dominance.

Osman was pleased with the Blues response to that slight setback and says it shows the mental toughness there is in the squad.

"It could have gone a bit pear shaped (when Scunthorpe scored) but we're a strong team character wise," said Osman.

"Chests came out, we stood up, calmed the game down and went and got our next goal."
