The final match in Group D of the Reserve Section League Cup was played and did not produce any goals as Derby County and Stoke City battled out a goalless draw. The result means that Derby are definitely through to the knockout stages and Stoke must avoid defeat in their final group game against Wolverhampton Wanderers in order to join them.
The rest of the Cup action took place in the First Round of the Reserve Plate and the game of the day was surely at Lincoln City where the home side shared a 6-6 draw with Loughborough Foxes. Toni McHamilton hit a hat-trick for Lincoln along with Jessica Rosseay, Jodie Steadman and Sophie Crosby, whilst Loughborough replied through a Nicola Russell hat-trick, Emily Gunn, Anna Renken and Sarah Brown before going on to advance with a 5-4 win in the resulting penalty shootout. Barnsley went through with a 4-2 victory over Middlesbrough, Madison Foye netting a brace along with Ellie Brightmore and Emily Pierrepont, whilst 'Boro's replies came from Lauren Farrow and Eve Gatens. Leeds Utd U23 also recorded a fine win, beating Chorley 5-2 with goals from Emily Sykes (2), Katie Astle, Megan Smith and Stacey Buxton. Hull City came away from Burnley FC Women with a 2-1 victory under their belts, Jennifer Randall and Holly Johnson-Collier netting their goals with Leanne Prescott replying.

Blackburn Rovers have moved into the top three in North Division One with a 3-2 victory over Durham Women, whose goals came from Amy Richardson and Ellie Smith.
The Midland Division One table continues to have a somewhat bizarre look about it after Coventry Utd and Nottingham Forest fought out a 1-1 draw. Rhea Bailey was on target for Coventry, who would have gone top with a win but sit in second instead, whilst Annabel McKechnie replied for Forest. This means that the entire table is now covered by just two points and, although they are unbeaten after their opening two games, Forest are actually in bottom place.
