Sporting Club Albion are chasing one of the best results in their history when they play Reading FC Women in the Third Round of the F.A.Women's Cup.
Albion are chasing their first National Division scalp and manager Dave Lawrence told Women's Soccer Scene: "This should be an interesting tie for us as we are playing against a side from the National Division. We have already played against Cardiff in the League Cup and we performed to a good standard throughout against them and competed well. The main thing we will need to improve on against Reading is completed better entrances into their final third, and adding some quality to our play.
"We are aware that they have some excellent individuals, especially in their attacking line up, but I am confident if we defend as well as we have done at times this year, we can keep them quiet, and also be a threat at the other end."
"This Sunday is probably the biggest game left in the season for us," adds striker Ashleigh Neville,"as we believe we can progress in this competition. Going into this game, I believe the players' confidence is high and looking for the win. Team spirit and morale is needed to bring players even closer together to get the result we believe we deserve after working hard all season.
"In order to win this game we can't be scared of Reading, but play our own game and focus on our own performance. It's a challenge we think we can win if we put our minds to it. Getting into the next round would put our confidence sky high."
Midfielder Emily Owen said: "I think we will win as we are a young and confident team with a huge desire to win at all costs no matter the level of team we are playing against. We are confident because of our team spirit and moral on and off the pitch."
Siobhan Hodgetts, who also plays in midfield, commented: "Sunday should be a decent test for us and is probably one our biggest games we have left this season. We started the season on a high and got some good results behind us so it's important we keep this winning mentality up and not get disheartened about the last few home results we have recently had.
"We played Cardiff a few weeks ago and with some clinical finishing in the final third, we could have got a win. "With this in mind I think we should look to go into Sunday's game for the win - within our squad we have a great team morale and taking this into the game will help us progress more."
