Brighouse gears up for local derby Cup tie
 Women's Football News 18 Sep 2015
Brighouse gears up for local derby Cup tie - 18 Sep 2015 - Women's Football NewsThe SSE Women's FA Cup conjures up an eagerly anticipated local derby this week when Brighouse Town take on Brighouse Athletic. 
Town defeated Ossett Albion 4-1 to reach this stage whilst Athletic had a fine 3-0 victory away to Wakefield and both teams are looking forward to facing each other on Sunday.
Town manager Rob Mitchell told Women's Soccer Scene: "We are hoping to put together a bit of run this year in the FA Cup although our main focus has to be success in the league, but the cup still has that bit of magic, especially if you can get into the latter stages and come up against one of the big sides in the women's game. Sunday won't be easy as we face a local rival but we will prepare properly, get the girls ready and hope for a positive result.
"We always look forward to the draw on a Monday and our main focus is to make sure it's our name in the hat. It won't be easy as Athletic always make life difficult for us but we have a good record against them but hopefully we can keep our good start going with another win on Sunday."
Captain Yasmin Ayub added: "There are a few ex-Town players in the Athletic line up, which will no doubt add a bit of spice to the occasion but I'm sure the game will be played in good spirits. It's good to be drawn at home and hopefully we can draw a good crowd, given the close proximity of the two sides, and put on a bit of a show which will hopefully encourage people to come back to future games."
Full back Kayleigh Bamforth is excited about the prospect of taking on Athletic: "It's always good taking on a rival in the cup, they will no doubt look at us as a bit of scalp and in a one-off cup game anything can happen. We have made a solid start to this season and the new players we have brought in have enhanced us as a team. I really hope it will be Town that come away with the bragging rights at the weekend."
As for Athletic, they are looking forward to pitting their wits against their local rivals. Their confidence is high after their first ever FA Cup win in the First Round Qualifying victory against Wakefield who, as Brighouse Town are, two leagues above Athletic.
"We know it will be a big ask as Town have started the season strongly," says Athletic manager Richard Monday. "But I believe in the players and I am sure they will give a good account of themselves.
"Forwards Ashley Butler and Nicki Holdsworth are both in great form and finding the net regulary, and new signing Louise Berry is settling in well.
"We have a few injuries going into the game but our squad is much stronger than in recent years."
