The draw for the quarter finals of the Premier League Cup has been confirmed.
With Charlton Athletic and Leeds United having not made it through the group stages, there will definitely be a new name on the trophy.
Quarter final draw: (to be played on Sunday 2nd February)
Cardiff City Ladies v Lewes
Preston North End v Nottingham Forest
Bradford City v Sheffield FC
Coventry City v Gillingham
Tottenham Hotspur ran out 4-2 winners over Brighton & Hove Albion in Group One on Sunday. The qualifiers had already been decided with Gillingham going through but goals from Wendy Martin (2), Kim Lane and Megan Wynne ensured that Spurs finished on a winning note, Brighton replying through Kirsty Barton and a Martin own goal.
Charlton Athletic and Portsmouth completed the Group Two matches by battling out a 1-1 draw. Sam Pittuck opened the scoring for the Addicks after ten minutes with Charley Wilson levelling shortly before half time. Neither side could find a winner during the second half and it is Lewes who progressed to the last eight.
Cardiff City Ladies clinched top spot in Group Three at the expense of Keynsham Town after beating them 4-0 in the group decider. The South Wales side were two ahead inside the opening ten minutes thanks to Sarah Wiltshire and Naomi Clipston, before Wiltshire went on to add two further goals after the break to complete her hat-trick and the victory.
Coventry City took the honours in Group Four, requiring a three-goal margin of victory in order to take top spot, they duly beat Derby County 4-0 to book their place in the last eight. Maz Gauntlett gave the Sky Blues a first half lead and they went on to clinch the win with second half strikes from Ashleigh Neville, Becky Anderson and Helen Dermody (see match report). There was however consolation for Nottingham Forest who, despite being pipped to top spot by Coventry's win, have since learned that they will also be in the quarter finals by virtue of being the best runners-up.
In Group Six, it was Blackburn Rovers who were 3-1 winners away to Sporting Club Albion thanks to a Nichol Forster brace and Rio Hardy goal but it is Sheffield FC who had already taken the qualification place.
Bradford City took the qualification place in Group Seven as they defeated Stoke City 4-1. Chantelle O'Hara had a great day in front of goal for City as she hit a hat-trick, with Rebecca Kendell adding the other goal.
