Roberto Martinez says the professional performance of his players at Stevenage is something every Evertonian should be proud of.

The Blues put themselves into the hat for the FA Cup fifth round with a comfortable 4-0 win at the Lamex Stadium after a brace from Steven Naismith and subsequent strikes from John Heitinga and Magaye Gueye.

The result was marred by Bryan Oviedo's double leg break, with his teammates visibly upset during the left-back's treatment on the pitch.

But as with the quickfire start to the game that saw Everton find a fifth-minute lead, Martinez was pleased with the maturity displayed by his troops in such circumstances.

He told evertonfc.com: "It was a professional perfomance which was pleasing because even when you have a team with the talent we have, today was still going to be a real test.

"It was a matter of being focused at the start of the game and the boys had to then refocus after Bryan's injury. If you can get that professionalism about you, you can focus on every action afterwards.

"We've been very successful over the years at Everton. The last [FA Cup] win was in 1995, but when you see the fans as they were today pushing us through to the next round - it's a real tradition.

"Every Evertonian can be extremely proud of the professional performance from our players and when you've got that, you've got a real chance to be competitive.

"We'll take it step by step with a real enjoyment and look forward to the draw, but we've got to have the same approach that we had today."

The fifth round draw takes place at 5.35pm. Blues can watch it live here.
