Leeds progressed past Norton 2-1 thanks to a last-minute winner and can now look forward to taking on Championship title-chasers Durham, who are two divisions their senior.

Brighouse Town’s Leah Embley scored half their eight goals against Farsley Celtic, with their reward a home tie with Sunderland.

Lincoln City recovered a two-goal deficit at Leafield Athletic to win 3-2, Amy Blinkhorn’s 25-yard half-volley in-between a Jessica Rousseau double.

The Imps next meet Northampton Town, who also dramatically came through with late goals. Leah Cudone levelled and had a penalty saved after Lye Town hit the post with a spot-kick, Francesca Partridge winning in in stoppage-time with another effort from the spot.

Huddersfield Town netted three second-half goals at Sheffield FC to secure a tie with Loughborough Lightning.

Chorley put five goals past Bradford City to book a clash with Newcastle United. Aleesha Collins and Ellie Cleary each struck twice to send Chorley into the third round for the first time ever.
