F.A.Women's Cup - Road to the Final
Newcastle United produced the result of the round to reach the quarter finals for the second time in three years, coming from 3-1 behind to force extra time and penalties with a shock victory over Watford.
Two years ago, Newcastle were on the wrong end of a penalty shootout in the last eight, going down to Liverpool, and this time they face Merseyside opposition again in the form of Everton.
Everton are now widely regarded as the second biggest women's club in the country but they will be seeking to put an end to a drought in the F.A.Women's Cup, which they surprisingly haven't lifted since 1989. In fact, their last major trophy was won ten years ago when they were crowned League Champions.
Everton's progress into the quarter finals has been swift and decisive. Barnet were beaten 9-0 in the Fourth Round and this was followed by a 3-0 victory away to Leicester City WFC.
Under the guidance of charismatic manager Mo Marley, Everton have a squad packed full of international players at all levels. Fara Williams and Jill Scott make up a formidable central midfield pairing whilst the back four are all full internationals. Jody Handley has been in good form up front whilst young striker Natasha Dowie continues to make an impression. Jo Potter has also continued her comeback from an injury which might have cost her a place in England's World Cup squad.
Everton will go into the match as overwhelming favourites to go through to the last four but Newcastle have already claimed one big scalp and, in a season which has seen a number of shock results, anything can happen....
