Play game not occasion - Holly
 Women's Football FA Women's Cup News - 17 Feb 2018
 
Leicester City Women captain Holly Morgan is confident that her team can acquit themselves well against Durham Women in the SSE Women's FA Cup Fifth Round on Sunday.
 
The FAWPL Northern Division side travel north east to take on their WSL opponents and Holly admits it is a challenge they are looking forward to. "As a squad we relish the chances of playing WSL sides as this is the level that we want to be playing at," she said. "We believe that we are capable of playing at such a level and every time we have played a WSL team we have competed and matched technically and physically with those oppositions not looking out of place or depth.
 
"We have been working very hard in training and we have a game plan which we plan to execute to the best of our ability. It's extremely important to keep our heads and to remain focused on our game and what makes us special. We must play the game and not the occasion.
 
"I think we'll enjoy being the underdogs on this occasion as the pressure lies with Durham. We can go into the game knowing that we are more than capable of competing with WSL Teams, but it is in fact Durham who need to prove that they are the team playing in a higher league. We are excited and raring to go!"
 
Leicester reached this stage of the competition with a 3-2 win against in-form South West Division One side Plymouth Argyle and Holly insists that this result should not be underestimated: "Plymouth were a tough opposition to face on Sunday and we knew it was going to be a difficult task. To get the win was a wonderful feeling and we now set our sights on progressing even further within the Cup."
 
As well as reaching the last sixteen of the SSE Women's FA Cup, Leicester are also in the quarter finals of the Premier League Cup and their County Cup Final. They are also doing well in the league but, accordingly to Holly, the increasing number of games will not be a problem.
 
"It's great that we remain in a high number of competitions this year," she replied. "Of course this has an impact on the number of games which we are getting through however with our fantastic squad depth we are able to effectively manage the workload in a way which allows us to competitively compete in all competitions and league games.
 
"This Club is all about growth, development and ambition. By reaching the last sixteen of the FA Cup for only the second time in the Club's history is a massive feat. You could therefore argue that this Sunday's game is historic for the Club as it highlights where we have come from and where we set our sights on going."
