Barnet manager Tracey Kevins is looking forward to Sunday's encounter with Doncaster Rovers Belles in the Fifth Round of the FA Women's Cup.
The Bees, who have an excellent record in the competition in the last couple of seasons, play host to the FA WSL side and Tracey told Women's Soccer Scene: "There is no doubt that Doncaster Rovers Belles have a number of talented players in their squad. However, we are well aware of their strengths and have come up against a number of their players before in big matches.
"For example, Mary Earps and Lyndsey Cunningham were both in the Nottingham Forest squad for last season's FA Women's Premier League Cup Final against us. Millie Bright and Shelby Hills, have already played at Underhill this season for Leeds United and Watford respectively.
"No doubt Doncaster will be well aware of our recent form, which has been outstanding, and will have done their homework. However, we will be underdogs on Sunday, a position we have relished in the past."
This includes the same stage of the competition twelve months ago when Barnet became one of only three teams to beat Birmingham City during the whole of their season.
"The draw will inevitably rekindle memories of the last season's Fifth Round when we pulled off the upset of the round to defeat another strongly fancied Super League team, Birmingham City, on their own ground," recalled Tracey. "We showed great character in that match to come from a goal behind to defeat a very strong Birmingham side.
"We went on to defeat West Ham United in a dramatic Sixth Round tie, to set up a second consecutive semi final against the eventual winners of the Cup, Arsenal.
"We have enjoyed some good runs in the FA Cup in recent years and have reached the Fifth Round in each of the last four seasons. Indeed in the last two campaigns we have progressed to the semi final stage."
