Bristol Academy v Leeds United[]

On the same day Bristol Academy, the Rovers women's team, were in FA Cup fourth round action against Leeds United. Leeds took the lead late in the match before Academy equalised in injury time through Corinne Yorston, necessitating a penalty shoot-out. Winning on penalties was always going to be a tough ask with Stef Curtis playing as a makeshift keeper, and Leeds ended up with a 4-3 shoot-out victory to progress to the fifth round.
