Millwall took a 2-0 lead early in the first half with two goals from Lillie Billson.

Pompey were also dangerous on the attack and a superb Gemma Hillier goal got them right back into the game.

Billson then completed her hat-trick for Millwall in the second period.

The visitors added the gloss to their win with a 90th-minute goal to make it 4-1.

Full-back Frankie Strugnell found the net with a 20-yard shot that came off the post and keeper, before finding it’s way over the line.

The victory means Millwall will take their place in Monday’s draw for round five.
