Sheffield Utd carry the flag for the East Midlands League this Sunday when they take on Derby County in the Second Round of the SSE Women's FA Cup.
The Blades are one of two Regional League teams still left in the cup and they are determined to make an impression against their Premier League opponents.
"I am very proud of each and everyone associated with the team and they deserve every praise they get," secretary Tony Santoro told Women's Soccer Scene. "The ladies have gone the extra mile by spending time from their busy schedules by visiting sick children in hospital and signing team posters."
"After the Christmas break, we are raring to get back into action and what better way than to test yourself against higher opposition," added captain Rachel Ruddach. "Despite the current injury crisis, spirits amongst the team remains high.
"We have great belief in each other and go into every game feeling like we can beat whoever is put in front of us. We are the lowest ranked team left in the competition, but hopefully we can pull off another shock result."
Manager, Dan O'Hearne said: "The FA Cup tie with Derby County represents our stiffest test this season but one we are looking forward to. We have had some tricky previous rounds to get to this stage of the competition and we take heart from already beating higher league opposition in Chester Le Street from WPL Northern Division One away from home.
"The task has been made more difficult due to our current injury crisis but I have every faith in my girls to give their all and hopefully pull off a major shock and show that Sheffield United Ladies are a team on the up and will become a force in the not too distant future."
