Cardiff City Ladies edged Oxford United 1-0 to climb above them and go fourth in the Southern Premier.
Second in Division 1 Midlands are now Birmingham & West Midlands after they walloped Burton Albion 14-1 with the help of five from Holly Rogers in front of their record crowd. The Brewers did score first but lost a player to a serious injury. Sporting Khalsa leapfrogged Leicester United into seventh when seeing them off 3-1.
Sunderland won through 4-0 at Chorley and next host Derby County for a place in the League Cup semi-finals. Maria Farrugia bagged a first-half brace with her second from distance, Keira Ramshaw netted in-between from 20 yards. Bridget Galloway volleyed in number four in the second half.
Portsmouth pulled off a 2-1 away win over Crawley Wasps and now host Southampton FC in the next round. Charmaine True gave them an early lead and moments after Crawley’s Hannah Haughton forced a good save, Rosie McDonnell doubled Pompey’s lead. It was deep into added time before the arrears were halved with a Naomi Cole penalty.
Huddersfield Town will host Stoke City in the last eight after restoring a two-goal lead that they let slip against lower division Liverpool Feds. Lucy Sowerby struck twice but a Nicola James free-kick and 30-yard Carla Lee lob levelled the score. Laura Elford back-heeled one over the line and got her second after the crossbar denied Lee.
League Plate holders, West Brom, booked a trip to Bolton Wanderers in the quarter-finals with a 5-1 defeat of Leafield Athletic. A Grace Harris own-goal was added to by Keeley Davies and Hattie James before half-time and although Georgia Harris got one back on the hour mark the Baggies scored twice more through Davies and Jade Arber.
