#Conti Cup: Five quarter-final places still to be decided

There are still five quarter-final places up for grabs in the FA Continental Tyres Cup, with Birmingham City and West Ham United looking almost certain to go through.

Wednesday 12 December 

Group 1 North

Birmingham City v Bristol City (Solihull Moors FC, 7.30pm)
Sheffield United v Leicester City WFC (Olympic Legacy Park, 7.45pm)

Group 2 North

Reading v Liverpool (Wycombe Wanderers FC, 7.30pm)

Group 1 South

Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea (Cheshunt FC, 7.30pm)
Yeovil Town v Brighton & Hove Albion (Dorchester Town FC, 7.45pm)

Group 2 South

Charlton Athletic v West Ham United (VCD Athletic, 7.45pm)
Millwall Lionesses v Arsenal (Dartford FC, 7.30pm)

Thursday 13 December

Group 1 North

Aston Villa v Manchester City (Boldmere St Michaels, 7.30pm)

Group 2 North

Everton v Manchester United (Southport FC, 7pm)

Group 1 South

Crystal Palace v London Bees (Bromley FC, 7.45pm)

Bristol City must win by four clear goals away at Birmingham City to deny their hosts a quarter-final place, a tall order against a side that has not conceded in four group games to date. Man City will finish top with a win at Aston Villa, while Sheffield United entertain Leicester in the other Group 1 North tie.

Reading host Liverpool for the second time in four days and victory for the Royals will put them into the last eight. Manchester United go to Everton knowing that all three points will see them progress from Group 2 North.

Brighton will secure their place in the knockout stages with a win at Yeovil, Tottenham will probably have to beat Group 1 South winners Chelsea to have a realistic chance of continuing in the competition. If Albion were to lose and Spurs fail to win, Crystal Palace or London Bees could take the runner-up spot with victory in their meeting.

Arsenal only need a draw at Millwall to finish to of Group 2 South and West Ham will go through with the Gunners as long as they avoid a seven-goal loss at Charlton.
