Andrea sets sights on taming Lionesses
 Women's Football FA Women's Cup News - 7 Feb 2017
FA Women's Cup News - Andrea sets sights on taming Lionesses - 7 Feb 2017 - Women's Football NewsNottingham Forest striker Andrea Bell is relishing the chance for her side to try and cause an upset after being drawn to face Millwall Lionesses in the fourth round of the SSE Women's FA Cup.
On Monday, Bell was at Farnborough Academy in Clifton to see the draw being made and take part in a question and answer session with the pupils.
The Forest player had a particular interest in the draw too having played in her side's narrow 1-0 at local rivals Derby County just 24 hours earlier.
While their fourth round opponents may ply their trade in FA Women's Super League Two - a league above Forest who are in the FA Women's Premier League Northern Division - Bell insists they will not be fearing their opponents.
"It will obviously be a challenge for us," she said. "They're in the league above, but we'll be up for that challenge. We'll prepare as we do for any other game.
"We'd rather it have been at home, but we'll go down there and give it our best shot, and we look forward to hopefully getting into the next round when the bigger teams come in.
"To be fair to Derby, they did a good job advertising it and there was a good atmosphere, although most of the fans weren't on our side!
"It was definitely satisfying - I don't think it was a game of high quality with the conditions of the pitch, but it was full of passion, full of heart."
The Fourth Round ties will be played on Sunday February 19th as the remaining 12 teams look to take a step closer to Wembley where the final will be played for the third year running.
Other eye-catching fixtures of the round include a Midlands derby between Aston Villa and Coventry United as well as an all-Yorkshire clash between Sheffield FC and Doncaster Rovers Belles.
Elsewhere in the draw, Durham Women host Everton, West Bromwich Albion take on Leicester City Women and Brighton and Hove Albion face a trip to Tottenham Hotspur.
Although it was the local derbies which caught Bell's eye as well as her own team's fate, believing the magic and competitiveness of the SSE Women's FA Cup will shine through.
"Coventry and Villa is one that sticks out - that will be a big Midlands derby," she added. "Coventry are going well in their league at the moment, and Villa are a good side, so that will be an interesting tie.
"The match between Sheffield and Doncaster looks good as well - that will be a great Yorkshire Derby, they are in the same league now, so that will be another interesting one for everyone."
Tickets are now on sale for the SSE Women's FA Cup Final on Saturday 13th May at Wembley Stadium connected by EE. For the second consecutive year, kids go free to the final. Adult tickets cost £15 and can be purchased here: https://ticketing.thefa.com/
