Elliott hit the post after latching on to a cross from the right but made no mistake when he converted the rebound from close range while lying on the ground.
City will now travel to third division Sheffield United for their fourth-round match.
In the night’s other replay, minor league Wrexham took second division Brighton to penalties after extra time ended 1-1 in north Wales.
Brighton won the penalty shootout 5-4. They play at home to Newcastle United in the fourth round.
