SLAVEN BILIC saw West Brom sink League Two newcomers Harrogate - but reckoned his side should have produced even more after their 3-0 win.
Sub Callum Robinson wrapped up the tie when he converted Kyle Edwards’ cross from close range with 13 minutes left.
But boss Bilic felt the margin of victory should have been bigger, as he said: “We scored wonderful goals, but the only negative was that we should’ve scored more.
"We played with confidence and dominance.”
Rakeem Harper collected a half clearance and spun past Josh Falkingham and George Thomson before powering in a spectacular drive from 30 yards for only his second Albion goal.
Robson-Kanu extended Baggies’s lead with another excellent finish - he collected the ball 25 yards from goal and curled home a superb left-footed shot.
Charlie Austin had a shot cleared off the line by Town’s Warren Burrell before Robinson added a third after being on the field for only four minutes.
Meanwhile Aleksandar Mitrovic made a happy return to Fulham’s starting line-up on his 26th birthday to head Scott Parker’s men into the third round.
The beefy Serbian striker, last season’s Championship golden boot winner, had not started for his club since before their successful play-off campaign.4Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic scored the only goal of the game in the win over FulhamCredit: PA:Press Association
But Mitrovic nodded his 50th goal in his 101st Fulham appearance to see off Paul Lambert’s League One side and book a third-round home tie against Sheffield Wednesday next week.
Parker gave debuts to four summer signings, who had all missed out on Saturday’s opening-day drubbing by Arsenal.
His selected a strong, experienced team who controlled the game but were unable to put Ipswich convincingly to the sword.
But the Fulham boss saw one of his new recruits, former Lyon right-back Kenny Tete, supply the deep cross for Mitrovic to score with a firm downward header seven minutes before half-time.
Ipswich’s Emyr Huws shot wildly wide when well placed in first-half injury-time but Mitrovic almost headed a second from another Tete centre only to be denied by a smart double-save from David Cornell who also kept out Bobby Reid’s follow-up effort.
Anthony Knockaert, Neeskens Kebano and Tom Cairney all went close for the Premier League newcomers as they strove for a second goal.4Brentford advanced through to the third round after beating Southampton 2-0Credit: Rex Features
Elsewhere Southampton crashed out at home against Brentford as they lost 2-0 against the Championship side.
First half goals from Christian Norgaard and Josh Dasilva proved to be the difference.
In another shock, Hull knocked out Leeds at Elland Road on penalties in a dramatic shootout.
The Tigers won 9-8 on spot-kicks after the two teams couldn't be separated after 90 minutes.
Hull thought they had initially done enough to win the game through Mallik Wilks' early goal, only for Ezgjan Alioski to equalise in the 93rd minute.

Unlikely scorers for Stars again to win Stanley Cup opener
Just another unlikely scorer this postseason for the Stars, like rookie Joel Kiviranta.
Hanley scored the first goal in this unusual Stanley Cup, and Kiviranta gave the Stars a two-goal advantage in the second period on way to a 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lighting inside the NHL bubble in Edmonton on Saturday night.
A 29-year-old defenseman, Hanley has played 46 regular-season games for three teams over the past five seasons, never putting a puck in the net. That changed 5:40 into the Stars’ first Stanley Cup Final game since 2000 when he scored off a feed from Roope Hintz, who collected the puck after it was dislodged by Kiviranta’s hit on Brayden Point.
Hanley didn’t play this postseason until Game 7 in the second round against Colorado, the same game when Kiviranta had a hat trick which he finished off with the series-clinching goal in overtime. Kiviranta had scored only once in 11 regular-season games and appeared in only two postseason games before that.
Kiviranta has played every game since, and the young forward also had a game-tying goal with 3:37 left in regulation of the last clincher for the Stars: Game 5 against top-ranked Vegas on Monday, where Denis Gurianov scored in overtime to give Dallas a breather before te final.
The goal by Kiviranta in the final minute of the second period against Tampa Bay put Dallas up 3-1.
In between the goals by Hanley and Kiviranta was a nifty tiebreaking score by Jamie Oleksiak, a defenseman who scored on his own rebound. Oleksiak took his left-handed shot that ricocheted behind a defender, and then reached out with his stick to regain control of the puck and knocking it in.
That was Oleksiak’s fifth goal in 22 games this postseason, after scoring only three in 69 games during the regular season.
