West Bromwich Albion manager Craig Nicholls says that his team are relishing the chance to take on Leicester City Women in the Fourth Round of the SSE Women's FA Cup on Sunday.
Albion, who reached the quarter finals last season, will host the tie against their Northern Division rivals and Nicholls told Women's Soccer Scene: "The team is really looking forward to the game and are certainly making my choices for a squad very difficult with the high quality we are seeing at training. The players from last year had a superb run in the FA Cup and I think that hunger has been passed on to the players who have joined us this season.
"We know Leicester will be really organised and up for the battle but we all need to remember how we felt when losing to them in the league earlier on in the season to a last minute goal. It certainly wasn't a nice feeling and that memory has to stick with us. We have to fight and stick together."
Striker Hazzanna Parnell added: "It's an FA Cup game and the atmosphere around the camp is on fire, the girls are buzzing for it. We know how important Sunday's game is and the opportunity it brings.
"Having done so well last season in the competition and having a taster has only made us hungry to reach even further this time round. That experience is still a burning fire within us and nothing will be handed out easily, Sunday's game won't be played without a fight. We grow in every training session and every match day, as long as we play as a team I am confident that we'll be looking out for our name in the next round...may the best team win."
"I'm buzzing for the game, all the girls are," said fellow striker Leigh Dugmore. "We've trained hard for it and hopefully we will be in the hat for the next round come Monday morning."
