Martino Chevannes insists that Queen's Park Rangers have nothing to lose when they travel to play Bristol City in their delayed SSE Women's FA Cup Third Round tie on Sunday.
Rangers will go into the match as underdogs against their WSL opponents but with three straight wins in their previous three matches, in all competitions.
"We're really looking forward to Sunday," said the Rangers manager. "It's all the players have been talking about in training.
"We go there under no pressure; we're the underdogs and they're the Super League team. But we're not going there for a day out, just to make up the numbers. We're going there to win and we firmly believe we can go there and compete.
"It's a great chance for the players to test themselves against FA WSL opposition and see where they are in respect to that. We are in good form at present and we're looking to continue that."
The match will be Bristol City's first under their new name and they are set to field a much changed side from that which was relegated from WSL 1 last season, a fact not lost on Chevannes.
"It's a big day for the opposition too," he added. "It's their first game as the newly-named Bristol City and they're in transition at the minute. They've had a lot of players leave, and the new manager's brought in a lot of new players.
"They've got the advantage of being full time and training full time. But we're going there to give it our best shot."
