To progress into the Fifth Round of the competition, Town’s Ladies pulled off a magnificent comeback to beat Charlton Athletic on penalties.
Ash Vickers’ side was 3-0 down with 15 minutes to go before goals from Brittany Sanderson, Laura Elford and Kate Mallin took the game into extra-time.
Goalkeeper Laura Carter produced a superb save to deny a Charlton penalty from the spot before Katie Nutter sealed the win by firing her spot kick into the back of the net.
