F.A.Women's Cup - Road to the Final
Chelsea ended the Cup run of Midland Combination title contenders Derby County with a 2-0 victory, thanks to two penalties from England striker Lianne Sanderson.
The Blues are therefore one victory away from reaching the semi finals for what would be the first time in their history and standing in their way are OOH Lincoln, who got as far as the last four last season.
OOH Lincoln are through to the quarter final stage once again after a 3-1 defeat over Nottingham Forest, a result which earned them the F.A.Women's Cup sponsored by E.On Team of the Round award. The Lady Imps have actually been beaten earlier in the competition but were reinstated after Curzon Ashton had fielded an ineligible player.
Manager Rod Wilson has put together a very strong squad at Northern Division level and the club is hoping to secure top flight status after finishing as runners-up in each of the last two seasons. The squad boasts two England internationals - goalkeeper Kay Hawke and striker Amanda Barr - and forward Jodie Michalska has been in outstanding scoring form in recent weeks.
The team is captained by Megan Harris and other key players include Mel Cook, Carla Ward and Leandra Little whilst Sophie Barker is a highly promising young player.
The game takes place at Chelsea's Imber Court home and the Blues will go into the match as favourites but Lincoln have a pedigree of beating top flight opponents in recent seasons and must not be underestimated.
