Manchester United Women are through the semi-finals of the Women's FA Cup after knocking out lowest-ranked side Lewes with a 3-1 win.

United had an early scare in the opening six minutes as Lewes had the first chances of the game - but some excellent defending from Thorisdottir kept the underdogs from getting on the scoresheet first.

It was a lively atmosphere at a sold-out Dripping Pan, with the Lewes band playing non-stop, with the Match of the Day tune, but it wasn't going to deter United as Lewes put up a fight to keep them out from goal as much as possible in the first half.

Lewes were punished in the next few moments however as Russo put United ahead in the eighth minute on her 50th appearance for the Reds - but unfortunately, it was later credited to Cleverly as an own goal.
