Plymouth Argyle manager Kev Rose is relishing the chance to take on Brighton & Hove Albion in the F.A.Women's Cup this week.
Argyle earned their chance against the Premier League outfit with a 6-1 victory over Exeter City and Kev told Women's Soccer Scene: "Our squad is now made up of young enthusiastic players who have progressed through the Devon FA Centre of Excellence, with many of them still at Plymouth Argyle Ladies/Ivybridge Community College academy.
"This will be a great test for us as a club and the players as individuals to see how much we have developed over the past two seasons. Our ethos at the club is now one of progression as a club and development as individuals. Training has gone well this week after Sunday's win over Exeter City.
"We had a classroom session on Monday and watched Brighton play, and we have had feedback on their squad, one of whom used to play for us.
"We are expecting a very tough test from a Premier League team. Having said that, we feel ready to take on that challenge at this stage of the season. All our players know they will need to be at their best on Sunday, if they are then anything can happen, this is the FA Cup isn't it !"
Argyle captain Katie Middleton added: "I know that all of the girls are looking forward to the next round of the FA Cup as it would be great to progress as far as possible but more importantly, it will be a good opportunity to test ourselves against a team in the league above us.
"We didn't do ourselves justice when we played in that league a few seasons ago and it will be good to show everyone how we have developed as a team with new players coming through and improving all the time. It would also be great to get through to the Fourth round as that's when the WSL teams enter the competition."
