Rugby started on top in their second-round game, creating many chances within the first 20 minutes. They got their reward when Sam Smyth pounced on a loose ball from a corner and fired home from the edge of the box.

It was 1-1 at half-time, however, after a lapse in play let in to Cradley to convert from distance.

But Rugby continued to press and Tammy Davies scored direct from a free-kick to give them the lead.
