Cardiff aiming for Cup upset
 Women's Football News 15 Mar 2013
Cardiff City Ladies have an upset in their sights when they take on Birmingham City in the Fifth Round of the F.A.Women's Cup on Sunday. 
The National Division side host the Cup holders at the Cardiff International Sports Stadium and Head Coach Jamie Sherwood insists that his side has what it takes to get through to the quarter finals.
"This tie is an amazing opportunity for our players to pit their wits against some of the best players in England and possibly Europe," he says. "Birmingham have the likes of Rachel Williams, Rachel Unitt, Laura Bassett and one of the most intelligent, exciting talents in Karen Carney."
Birmingham's record last season pointed to them being the second best side in the country but Cardiff can look to a precedent two seasons ago. "Birmingham are the cup holders, but they have lost previously before to a Premier League club when they went out against Barnet during 2010-11 and we'll give this everything we've got," says Sherwood.
"If we produce the level of performance we are capable of, as we did in beating Aston Villa, we have a genuine chance. We have the players to cause problems for Birmingham.
"There will be no lack of preparation, desire or the want to perform and win when the team run out this Sunday."
Although Cardiff are currently situated just above the bottom two in the National Division, they are setting their sights a lot higher than just survival. "All the attention has turned to this weekend against Birmingham, but there is such a lot to play for," says Sherwood. "We have a game in hand in the league and are six points off fifth [place].
"That's where we would love to finish and it's more than achievable as we play teams in and around us during our remaining fixtures. There is also the Welsh Cup to fight for and we have a huge grudge match against Cardiff Met in the final during May.
"Our season does not hinge on winning against Birmingham this Sunday, but that would get the team massive momentum behind us for the rest of the season.
"Our cup tie this weekend is huge justification of work our girls have put in this season and will set a benchmark to the progress made.
"I firmly believe that, if we produce a positive performance over the 90 minutes, we can earn a result to be proud of. There is a belief among our players that we can produce a cup upset."
