On Sunday, Natasha Lynch will lead Coventry City into their F.A.Women's Cup Third Round tie against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Ricoh Arena.
Natasha, who has been with the club since the age of 14, is relishing the chance to appear at the home of the Sky Blues. "It's fantastic to play at such a great stadium," she told Women's Soccer Scene. "It will be a really great occasion. There has been a lot of interest in the game and hopefully a good attendance on the day.
"Around six of our team are from Coventry and the rest are from the Midlands so it will be a special day for all of us."
The Coventry captain is also looking forward to taking on their Premier League opponents. "I think it will be a really good game," she says, "and a good test for us as there has always been competition between ourselves and Wolves. Last season, we met in the County Cup and the match went into extra time, so it could be close once again."
Coventry are currently in second place in the Midland Combination and head the teams chasing after runaway leaders Rotherham United. "Had it not been for Rotherham we would be in pole position," says Natasha. "We believe we can still catch them - we have a good squad and still have to play Rotherham at home.
"There are at least four really decent teams in our league so it should be a hard one to win. There is a very big determination at our club to get back to the Premier League and I believe we are on track, even if we don't make it this year. We have some good young players coming through and the future is very bright for the club."
Coventry came through a tough match in the last round to reach this stage, winning 1-0 against South East Combination high fliers Rushden & Diamonds. "It was tough," recalls Natasha. "Rushden are a strong and very physical side. It was a very close game and there was only one goal in it."
Looking ahead to the match on Sunday, Natasha insists that her team are more than capable of getting past Wolves. "Winning the league would always be our top priority," she admits, "but the whole squad is playing really well, we're playing as a team and, having won all of our last six matches, we are confident. Emma Lipman has been playing very well in midfield while Kirsty Robinson (right wing) and Jenny Lowe (left back) have also been in good form for us.
"To be drawn against teams like Arsenal, Charlton or Everton is everyone's dream and we would be overjoyed to knock out Wolves.
"I believe that if we can keep our determination and team spirit going, anything can happen."
