Three second half goals saw Bristol Academy to a 3-1 victory over Watford in one of the two remaining all-National Division ties in the F.A.Women's Cup Fourth Round.
After the first half ended goalless, Kerry Bartlett gave Bristol a lead which was cancelled out by Lisa Burrows, before Bartlett netted a second and Justine Lorton wrapped up the win.
Academy's opponents in the last sixteen will be Birmingham City, who came through a potentially tricky tie at Charlton Athletic with a 6-0 win. Becky Hall, Jo Potter and Dannii Bird all bagged first half goals for the Blues and after the break, Potter added her second to add to other strikes from Chloe Foster and Christina Torkildsen.

The tightest game of the day was at Crystal Palace where opponents Aston Villa came away with a 2-1 victory after extra time. Sharon Longville gave Palace an early lead which was cancelled out by Carly Davies and it was not until the 108th minute that the decisive goal was scored, Kelly Clarke earning Villa a Fifth Round tie against Leeds Carnegie.
Barnet edged out Portsmouth 2-1 in another closely fought clash. Holly Sandow gave Barnet the lead with Gemma Ritchie equalising for Pompey, before Cheryl Williams settled matters in favour of the Bees with the winning goal from the penalty spot.
