Leicester City Women became the final team to reach the Fifth Round of the SSE Women's FA Cup after they won 3-2 away to Plymouth Argyle in their delayed tie.
Plymouth had won every previous match they had played this season but that record was brought to an end by Leicester, who will now travel in completely the opposite direction in the last sixteen to play Durham Women.
Leicester took the lead in the 12th minute when Charlotte Greengrass latched onto a Rosie Axten free kick in the area and slotted home from close range. They took that lead into the half time break but within four minutes of the restart, Argyle were back on level terms thanks to leading goalscorer Natasha Knapman.
Leicester reacted well to this setback and were back in front just before the hour when Axten scored from the penalty spot, Michaela Phillips getting a hand to her kick but was unable to prevent it from finding the corner of the net.
Leigh Dugmore made it 3-1 late on when she slid home from close range and although Katie Middleton pulled one back for Plymouth deep into injury time, there was no time and Leicester had recorded a hard earned win.
