Tottenham Hotspur won 3-0 away to Southampton to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup.

The result sees Spurs – who finished second to Arsenal in their group – progress as one of the two best runners-up.

Ramona Petzelberger rifled home a wickedly-deflected effort to give Tottenham the lead inside the half-hour, watched by a crowd of 1,735 at Eastleigh FC.

Spurs amassed 24 shots to the Saints two but took until midway through the second half to double their lead, when Charlotte Grant slid in to score from a corner.

Grace Clinton wrapped up the victory 12 minutes from time, working her way into the box and lifting the ball over keeper Kayla Rendell.

The quarter-final draw scheduled for today (Friday 26 January) has been postponed, with an FA statement saying that: “We can confirm that we are investigating an alleged breach of Cup Rule 8.19 by Aston Villa during their FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup fixture against Sunderland on Wednesday 24 January.”
