Huddersfield fightback shocks Charlton
 Women's Football FA Women's Cup News - 15 Feb 2019
 
Huddersfield Town produced arguably the result of the round when beating Charlton Athletic on a penalty shootout following a 3-3 draw.
 
However this did not tell the full story as Huddersfield produced a stunning comeback from three goals down to become the only FA Women's National League side to make it through to the last sixteen.
 
Charlton, who reached the quarter finals last season, looked set to be on their way through when Kit Graham netted twice and Charlotte Gurr the other to put them in control of the tie but three goals in a five minute spell from Brittany Sanderson, Laura Elford and Kate Mallin brought Town back on level terms and into a penalty shootout, where Laura Carter saved Elizabeta Ejupi's kick to complete a sensational comeback. Huddersfield's reward will be a tie against FA WSL opposition in the form of West Ham Utd.
 
One Championship team to survive a scare was Aston Villa who came from behind to beat Stoke City 2-1. Hannah Keryakoplis gave Stoke an early lead, which they held at the interval, before second half goals from Kerri Welsh and Sophie Haywood saw Villa get through.
 
Villa are now at home to Sheffield Utd who also safely negotiated a tough away tie, winning 2-0 at Loughborough Foxes. Alethea Paul and Veatriki Sarri scored the goals to takes the Blades into the last sixteen for the first time in their history.
 
There was late drama at Millwall Lionesses where the home side progressed with a 1-0 victory over Lewes. Grace Neville grabbed the only goal of the game in injury time to earn Millwall their first victory of the season and a Fifth Round date away to Liverpool, who ran out 6-0 winners over Milton Keynes Dons. The scoreline did not reflect the efforts of the Dons, who gave a good account of themselves on the day, but goals from Laura Coombs and Courtney Sweetman-Kirk put the Reds two ahead at half time and after the break, Leandra Little headed in the third before Jemma Purfield netted twice on her debut and Ashley Hodson rounded off the scoring on her return from a long term injury.
 
Durham Women eliminated any threat of a shock against Cardiff City Ladies by beating them 5-1. Abby Holmes gave the Wildcats the lead, with Cardiff hitting back to equalise through Kylie Nolan, but Beth Hepple put Durham back in front and they went on to seal the win through Sarah Robson and a late brace from Zoe Ness. Durham will be away to Bristol City in the last sixteen.
 
Reading FC Women also produced a strong performance to sweep aside Keynsham Town, scoring thirteen time without reply. Fara Williams netted five times in all, including three from the penalty spot, Lauren Bruton weighed in with a hat-trick and Brooke Chaplen added a further two, with the total being completed by Charlie Estcourt, Rakel Honnudottir and Gemma Davison (see match report).
 
Reading will be at home again in the Fifth Round, to Birmingham City who won 3-1 away to Yeovil Town in the day's only all-WSL game, courtesy of three first half goals. Aoife Mannion gave the Blues the lead from the penalty spot and Emma Follis made it two barely a minute later and Charlie Wellings made it three, before Erin Bloomfield netted a consolation goal for Yeovil.
