Chance to test ourselves - Nikita
 Women's Football News 26 Feb 2016
Chance to test ourselves - Nikita - 26 Feb 2016 - Women's Football NewsCharlton Athletic will get the chance to test their FA Women's Super League (FA WSL) credentials on Sunday when they face Durham Women in the SSE FA Women's Cup Fourth Round at New Ferens Park. 
The Addicks, who reached the quarter finals last season, have been in scintillating form so far in this calendar year, notching up 40 goals and conceding none in their seven fixtures in 2016 so far.
After taking FA WSL 2 side Everton to penalties last term, winger Nikita Whinnett says the team are confident of an upset this weekend - and are even dreaming of Wembley, where the final will be staged for the second year running.
She said: "We've had a lot of good wins recently, we're on a roll and hopefully we can keep that going at the weekend - we're definitely determined to, we don't want to lose that game at all.
"To be honest I was gutted we didn't go further [last season] so hopefully this year we can go a little bit further and maybe even get to the final. [Playing at Wembley] is a dream come true for any player of any standard.
"If we can play against Everton the way we did then we can play against anyone. On our day, we can beat anyone."
Whinnett netted a dramatic equaliser in the Everton match last season, just a couple of minutes after the Toffees thought they had won it, to take the tie into extra time. After a goalless further half an hour, Charlton suffered the heartbreak of a penalty shootout loss and their opponents went on to lose to Notts County in the semi finals.
Despite that disappointment, the Liverpool-born (and supporting) Whinnett and her team mates enjoyed the experience and are looking forward to testing themselves against opposition in a higher division yet again.
During a season that has seen Charlton's FAWPL South results include 6-1, 8-1 and 8-0 wins, as well as 9-0 and 10-0 FA Cup victories against opposition at the same level as them, Whinnett would love to come up against these better teams more often.
"We definitely want to test ourselves and see if we're good enough for that type of football and that kind of league," she added.
"It's good that there's going to be no pressure on us, but we want to test ourselves to see how good we are. I don't want to play against clubs that aren't as good as us; I want to play against the best so that we become the best."
