Keynsham Town sport a good record in cup competitions in recent seasons, and they will be looking to add the name of Lewes to their list of Southern Division victims in the last two years.
The Somerset side have claimed the scalps of West Ham Utd, C & K Basildon and Swindon Town in cup matches and have got to the Fourth Round for the second successive season. Last year they found WSL 2 side Durham Women too tough a nut to crack, but Barrie Newton's side approach the tie with Lewes in confident mood as they attempt to reach the last sixteen for only the second time in their history.
"Lewes will undoubtedly be a stern test for Keynsham but we have the all-important home advantage on our 3G surface," chairman Bob Mewse told Women's Soccer Scene. "We can't allow any careless mistakes, nor can we afford them too much respect. If on top form, we can match a side like Lewes on the day, and anything is possible from a one-off cup tie."
"I think it's going to be a big test, and challenge but one we are looking forward to," added captain Rachel Cullen. "We know we will have to be at our best on the day to get the result we want, but we have been training hard and we are all positive. Anything can happen in the cup and we are hoping for an upset - all we can do is give our best and play how we know we can and then hopefully the result will follow."
One player in the Keynsham squad with plenty of FA Cup experience is Justine Lorton, a previous winner and finalist in the competition during her long and distinguished career.
"We know it's going to be a tough game but we have to believe we can win it or we shouldn't be playing," she said. "As a club, we've enjoyed previous successes in the cup competitions and will do our best to continue that on Sunday.
"All we can do is give everything for each other and hope things go for us on the day. It's the cup after all, so you never know."
