Dons' long journeys made worthwhile

FA Women's Cup News - Dons' long journeys made worthwhile - 3 Feb 2017 - Women's Football NewsAFC Wimbledon have clocked up many hundreds of miles so far during their SSE Women's FA Cup run but this week, they can look forward to home comforts and a plum tie against WSL newcomers Brighton & Hove Albion.
The Dons Ladies progressed to this stage after travelling to Bexhill Utd in the Third Round Qualifying, winning 6-0. The Fourth Round Qualifying draw resulted in a 4-2 home win against Denham Utd. The First Round Proper took them on the road again, this time away to Norwich City where the Dons came home 4-1 winners and then, they faced another lengthy journey in the opposite direction to Plymouth Argyle, which ended in a 3-0 win and put them into the draw for this exciting tie.
Manager Chris Lyons (pictured) is relishing the chance for his team, who are making a good account of themselves in their first season back in the Premier League following promotion. "It's great for the profile of AFC Wimbledon to be staging games like this," he told Women's Soccer Scene, "and we're obviously delighted to be in this competition at this stage.
"There's always something special about the FA Cup, so to have kept our run going for this long has been a huge achievement. As far as Sunday is concerned  we'll approach his game just as any other, and look to put on a show for everyone who's coming to watch us.
"The fact it's a WSL team just makes it a little more special, and Brighton are a very good team. But we're not there on Sunday just to make up the numbers, there's belief within the squad, and all the girls are up for this game.
"Hard work and a lot of travelling has got us into this round, and we've earned our right to be in this game."
The Dons' leading scorer, Laura Low added: "I know all of us are really excited about Sunday's game against Brighton, especially with it being the first time for us reaching the Third Round of the FA Cup. It seems to make it that little bit more special.
"We know it will be a challenge but we're all prepared to work hard as a team. The club are showing a lot of support to us and that makes us even more determined to put on a show. The backing we get is fantastic, and we want to repay some of that on Sunday. I think if we stay disciplined and we all do our individual jobs it will be a great game to watch."
