It was a scrappy affair in the freezing cold, settled by a goal at the end of each half. Jeorgia Carr tapped in at the far post on 34 minutes and Lucy Dakin slotted home the second goal from a short corner after the final whistle had blown.

City struggled for fluency throughout, but dominated much of the game against a team who always looked lively on the break. City goalkeeper Elis Srnska had to make a fine save with the score at 0-0 in the first-half.

The quarter-finals are scheduled for March 5.
