Wednesday steel up for Cup local derby
 Women's Football News 7 Oct 2016
This Sunday, the SSE Women's FA Cup Third Round Qualifying draw has been geographically kind to Sheffield Wednesday Ladies. 
After hosting and picking up the costs of their Second Round Qualifying tie, the draw this time has given them an away tie against local FA Women's Premier League team Steel City Wanderers.
Although the Steels play their football two divisions above the Owls and will provide a very tough fixture, the draw means just a short journey across the city to the FA's new hub at St George's Park, Thorncliffe where the Steels play their home games on the brand new 4G surface.
In the previous round Wednesday had a comfortable 4-0 victory over Brighouse Athletic with goals from Jade Rabjohn (2), Kathryn Mudge and Michelle Wakelin.
Manager Dave Higgins commented: "We enter the FA competition every year as a welcome change to the league programme, we go into games just looking to enjoy it. The game against the Steels will be a big ask for us as they play two levels above us and seem to have got off to a great start this season in the FAWPL. However we also have had a good start and are currently unbeaten so although we will go into the game as underdogs we are hoping we can give the Steels a good game."
Owls striker Emily Higgins said: "The girls are looking forward to the game, we have played a number of friendlies against Steel City over the last few years and although tough opposition they have always been close games."
Captain Jen Burke added: "I remember we played the Steels last December in the County Cup and although they took a 3-1 lead, we pulled them back to 3-3 and then could have won the tie after we hit the bar in the closing minutes of normal time. Steels did score in extra time to go through the round 4-3 but we will go into the game with nothing to lose, knowing if we play at our best, we will definitely give them a game."
