A third successive home cup match saw Town see off Reading Senior Division basement side Mortimer in the Reading Senior Cup second round.
From the outset Town were the superior side, not allowing Mortimer much of a look in.
Adam Jeffrey and Nick Edwards both had chances before Jamie Fairchild opened the scoring on 12 minutes when his close range shot from a Luke Williams pass was deflected past John Bates in the Mortimer goal.
Town doubled the lead after 25 minutes as Eliot Whitehouse scored his first for the club with a dipping shot from distance.
Danny Isaiew then made it 3-0 soon after, showing great technique with his turn and shot.
The second half saw Town apply pressure, but the defending of veteran Terry Long and the goalkeeping of Bates denied Town until the closing minutes of the match.
It was Luke Williams who finished the scoring off two minutes from time with a close range tap in.
The win gives Woodley a quarter-final tie at Flackwell Heath in February.
Next up for Town is the visit of leaders Henley Town to East Park Farm as league action is resumed.
Woodley Town: Cooke-Chowdhary, Jewell, Thomas, Edwards (Cripps), Nightingale, Baxter, Jeffrey, Whitehouse (Holloway), Fairchild, Isaiew (Witt), Williams, Sub Not Used: Varndell.
