Leeds aim to enjoy occasion
 Women's Football News 9 Jan 2015
 
Leeds Ladies will be looking to make a mark in the FA Women's Cup this Sunday when they travel to play Coventry City in the Second Round. 
 
Leeds captain Emma Bentley said: "We are really fired up and looking forward to playing in the FA Cup again on Sunday. After beating our local rivals, Guiseley, in the last round this is going to be a massive challenge for us - going away to Coventry and testing ourselves against a team that are at the top end of the league above us.
 
"It will be great for us to see how far we have come as a team and what we need to work on to get to that next level. The FA Cup wasn't marked as one of our priorities this season but we have enjoyed progressing through the stages and it is exciting to think that if we do win on Sunday we might get that dream away day to a super league side in the next round. 
 
"Of course, we are very much the underdogs at the weekend but I quite like being in that situation. We aren't expected to win, but Coventry won't have met many teams that will fight for a result and work as a team until the very end like we do. Anything that we come out with will be great but it would be nice to surprise a few people."
 
Club Chairman, Gary Cooper, added: "Six months ago the club was born from the ashes of the disbanded Leeds United Ladies and we didn't want to put any pressure on the coaches and players, so at the outset we said, let's just enjoy the football and keep smiling this season. In honesty I didn't expect us to achieve what we have so to be facing a top WPL team like Coventry in the FA Cup is an honour and a real challenge for us. Win, lose or draw, our ethos stays the same, enjoy the football and keep smiling but I know the girls will want to give a good account of themselves for the fans and for each other."
 
The supporters of the Phoenix club have already established themselves as passionate, vocal and devoted in true 'Leeds' style to their team and will be present in numbers again at the weekend. Gary said: "Our supporters are just superb, they travel anywhere and everywhere and they really do make themselves heard, all in the best possible spirit of course.
 
"Whatever the result, Leeds Ladies FC is proud to be a part of the competition and the women's game #Phoenixrises"
