Leeds Ladies progress to next round of League Cup

Sporting Khalsa Women 1 (Walker 30)
Leeds United Ladies 2 (Smith 40, Campbell 90)
    
A Hannah Campbell winner deep into stoppage time sent Leeds through to the next round of the National League Cup away at Sporting Khalsa.
     
Leeds went on the attack early on, as Rebecca Hunt headed wide from a Katie Thompson cross. Nine minutes later Emma Lee went even closer, as she hit the crossbar from 30 yards with Sporting Khalsa's Toni Parkes unable to get near. Holly Findlay also saw a fine shot saved by the Parkes, before Abby Parkin headed wide from a corner.
With Leeds in the ascendency, Sporting Khalsa dealt The Whites a blow when Lauren Walker gave the hosts the lead with a strike from 10 yards out. The lead wouldn't last long, however, as Leeds got their equaliser when Hannah Smith looped a shot over the keeper five minutes before the break.

Leeds picked up where they left off in the second half, with Katie Thompson going close twice from free kicks, one saved by Parkes, and one going just wide.
Sporting Khalsa enjoyed their own chances, with Hannah Payne making a brilliant one-handed save to deny Stephanie Kydd.
   
With the second half drawing to a close, and the prospect of extra-time looming, Hannah Campbell first saw a point-blank shot saved by the keeper, before tapping home the winner, five minutes into stoppage time.
