Watford booked their place in the Fifth Round of the F.A.Women's Cup by knocking out Nottingham Forest on penalties following a 3-3 draw.
Catherine Lawson gave Forest the lead midway through the first half but Watford hit back with Sarah Wiltshire levelling from the penalty spot and then sending her side ahead on the hour mark.
Forest looked to have turned the game around as Lawson netted her second with three minutes remaining and, five minutes into extra time, Jemma Connor-Iommi put them back in front. However with just four minutes remaining, Wiltshire - who is having a superb season - completed her hat-trick to send the game into a penalty shootout.
It was Watford who emerged as 4-3 winners and they will go to Millwall Lionesses in the last sixteen.
Sunderland, beaten finalists two years ago, were pushed all the way by Derby County and also needed penalties in order to progress.
Demi Stokes and Abby Holmes both hit the woodwork for Sunderland who found Derby goalkeeper Jenny Simpson in fine form, but the home side also had opportunities with Hannah Ward twice going close to scoring. Neither side could find the net in 120 minutes before Sunderland won 4-2 in the shootout to guarantee themselves home time with Lincoln Ladies.
West Ham Utd complete the Fifth Round line up after they defeated Colchester Utd 4-2. Nina Downham netted twice for the Hammers in the first half but Emily Heaslip reduced the arrears three minutes after the restart.
Emma Thomas restored West Ham's two-goal lead shortly afterwards and, although Helen Bass renewed Colchester hopes by pulling a goal back, Kayleigh Xidhas scored a decisive fourth which means that the Hammers now make a short trip to play Enfield Town.
