Forest favourites after taming Lionesses
 Women's Football News 24 Jan 2011
 
Forest favourites after taming Lionesses - 24 Jan 2011 - Women's Football NewsNottingham Forest will take over the mantle of favourites to lift the Premier League Cup following their 2-0 victory away to Millwall Lionesses.
 
The first half ended goalless with Gemma Iommi hitting the bar for Forest but the deadlock was broken six minutes into the second half as Suzanne Davies set up Catherine Lawson to score from close range. Millwall battled hard to try and get back into the game but Forest sewed up the win seven minutes from time as substitute Catherine Stainthorpe neatly lobbed home a decisive second goal. The result means that there will be a brand new name on the trophy this season.
 
Forest step into the role of favourites because Sunderland suffered a shock 2-1 defeat away to Portsmouth after extra time. Kelly McDougall had put the Wearsiders ahead but the experienced Justine Lorton equalised and Gemma Hillier scored the winner for Pompey during the extra period (see match report).
 
Leicester City complete the semi final line up as they won a pulsating tie 2-1 against West Ham Utd. After Natalie Reay had struck the post for Leicester, Becky Merritt gave West Ham the lead with a strike from 20 yards. Five minutes later and Leicester were level, Reay this time finding the net after a strong run. The second half was a tight affair with both defences on top but it was Courtney Sweetman-Kirk who settled matters in Leicester's favour in the 78th minute by firing home from the edge of the area after good build up play.
 
The three winning teams are joined in the last four by Barnet, who had won their quarter final tie at Cardiff City back in November.
