Elsewhere, Chichester City of the third tier lost 3-0 at home to top-flight Liverpool.

Bethany England, Ashley Hodson, and Rinsola Babajide - on her first start - netted the Reds' goals.

Charlton Athletic are the only side outside the two Women's Super League divisions to reach the last eight, beat fellow third-tier club Cardiff City.
