Luton relishing "huge test"
 Women's Football News 8 Jan 2016
Luton relishing Luton Town manager Nikki Baker insists that her team will not be daunted by the task of taking on Brighton & Hove Albion in the Second Round of the SSE Women's FA Cup on Sunday. 
Luton are having a good season in South East Division One and Nikki is confident that this will put her side in good stead against the runaway Southern Division leaders. She said: "I am really looking forward to the game this weekend, it will be a huge test for us playing Brighton who are sitting top of the league above us.
"However we are confident in our own ability as we are doing well in the Premier League Division One, sitting second, and believe we can beat teams at a higher level.
"It will be good to have an FA Cup run as it generates money and publicity for the club as well as excellent experiences for the players and staff involved. We have a good squad with some very young players but also a good mixture of experienced squad members who have played at this level for a long time.
"Brighton will be the favourites in the tie but if we can contain them and be disciplined, then I believe we can hurt them. It will be a good game and I am looking forward to it, as are the players."
Luton midfielder Erica Byron (pictured), who is one of the younger players in the squad, added: "It is a excitable moment for us as a club to be involved in such a big game and me personally, being a young player. I am looking forward to playing against a well known team who are a league above.
"It will be a great experience for me as a growing player to play in the match and experience the buzz of the FA Cup. I am looking forward to the challenge."
The two teams have met previously in the FA Women's Cup, back in 2008-09 when Luton were 1-0 winners, thanks to a goal from Rebecca Kane. It was a historical win for Luton as it was the first time they had ever beaten a team from a higher division in the FA Cup and the result also earned them the Team Of The Round award.
Kane is still registered with the club but due to injuries, she has rarely featured this season. The only other survivor from that game is Michelle Byrne who is likely to be in the match day squad on Sunday. Michelle is Luton's longest serving player who started with the Under-10s way back when, and has made just over 200 senior appearances for the club.
