Super Eagles knock out County
 Women's Football News 17 Feb 2014
 
Super Eagles knock out County - 17 Feb 2014 - Women's Football NewsCrystal Palace caused a huge shock in the F.A.Women's Cup as they defeated Premier League Derby County 2-0 to reach the Fourth Round. 
 
In front of a large and vocal crowd, Derby started the game well but the London & South East League side settled down and Roschelle Shakes twice went close to giving them the lead. The pattern of the game continued in the second half Fran Ferrari and Shakes having opportunities but in the 62nd minute, Palace took the lead when a good move involving Jade Davenport, Kirsty Mitchell and Shakes was finished off by Jenny Kikomeko. With just under fifteen minutes remaining, Kikomeko cut in from the right and crashed an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net to seal a famous victory for Palace, who will now be at home to Portsmouth.
 
Brighton & Hove Albion came through a potentially awkward tie away to Plymouth Argyle with a 4-0 victory under their belts and they now travel to the Ricoh Arena to play Coventry City.
 
Cally Beaumont went close to giving the Seagulls an early lead but on the 25 minute mark, Tammy Waine did open the scoring through a superb long range strike which found the top corner. Laura Perrett hit the bar for Argyle shortly afterwards and Jodie Chubb also struck the post early in the second half, with Kirsty Barton having a shot cleared off the line at the other end and Charlotte Owen hitting the woodwork from distance.
 
However Brighton were not to be denied and Barton finished off a good team move to double her side's lead and two minutes later, Rebecca Merritt put them further ahead with a well struck left foot shot. Paula Howells forced a fine save from Michaela Phillips but Brighton rounded off the scoring five minutes from time, Kim Whitcombe following up to score after Barton's free kick had come back off the post.
 
Blackburn Rovers ended the Cup hopes of Middlesbrough by beating them 3-0. Evie Manning gave Rovers a first half lead and the striker went on to complete a good day for her and her side after the break, netting twice more to complete a hat-trick.
 
Blackburn will now be away to Reading Women, who won 2-1 away to Millwall Lionesses with goals from Lauren Bruton and Fran Kirby (see match report).
 
Two teams with title aspirations in the Premier League met each other and it was visitors Gillingham who emerged as 1-0 winners over Nottingham Forest. A well contested tie was decided by a first half penalty from Charlotte Gurr and the Gills will now be at home to the winners of the tie between Preston North End and Yeovil Town.
 
The other Third Round tie to be played was at Charlton Athletic where Sheffield FC ran out 6-0 winners to book themselves a Fourth Round trip to Durham Women (see match report).
 
Bradford City and Blackpool Wren Rovers finally played their Second Round tie at the sixth attempt with City scoring seven times without reply. They will now be at home to Cardiff City Ladies (scorers to follow).
