F.A.Women's Cup - Road to the Final
Leeds Carnegie continued their Cup run with a 3-0 victory away to Aston Villa. Carla Cantrell scored twice and Jess Clarke added the other to ensure that Leeds ended the hopes of their Northern Division opponents.
Now Leeds face the ultimate test in the quarter finals as they have to play Arsenal for a place in the last four. The match will be a repeat of last year's Final in which the Gunners won 4-1 at the City Ground, Nottingham.
Arsenal booked their place in the Sixth Round by beating Middlesbrough 4-0, which included a double from recent signing Helen Lander. They will be looking to keep their hold on the trophy in what is manager Vic Akers' last year in charge and, although they are set to lose several key members of their squad, are still the favourites to do so.
Karen Carney is likely to make her last appearance for the Gunners in this match but only Julie Fleeting is set to be missing. The squad remains powerful in all areas with brilliant Scottish youngster Kim Little maybe stepping into Kelly Smith's shoes whilst Gemma Davison continues to improve at a rapid rate. The likes of Jayne Ludlow, Faye White, Rachel Yankey, Ciara Grant and Katie Chapman are all still there whilst Helen Lander will keep up the goal threat.
The match takes place at Boreham Wood and Arsenal will go into the match as favourites as they look to go one step closer towards a fourth successive Cup success.
