Charlton Athletic are relishing the opportunity of taking on Arsenal in the quarter finals of the SSE Women's FA Cup on Sunday.
The Addicks are having a fine season in the FAWPL Southern Division, having gone back on top of the table on Sunday and this week marks the furthest they have gone in the competition since the club's glory days in the early 2000's, which included lifting the trophy in 2005.
First team coach James Marrs told Women's Soccer Scene: "We'll make sure we're well prepared. We've got lots of information on Arsenal, so we'll put the girls in the best possible shape that we can.
"They are physically going to be better than us, they are technically going to be better than us, but they're not going to be better than us tactically. It's easy to say you've got to go and enjoy it, but it's going to be difficult but if we can be organised you never know. It is the FA Cup; Wigan beat Manchester City and no one was expecting that.
"We do believe we can get a result, we definitely can. It's going to come down to a bit of luck on the day as well but sometimes if you work hard you create your own luck."
"It's going to be hard work, we know that," admitted leading goalscorer Charlotte Gurr. "But we've got the right staff to be able to set us up really well to make it hard for them at least. It's the FA Cup; you never know."
Charlton goalkeeper Katie Startup added: "It's going to be huge for everyone; it's not every day you get to an FA Cup quarter final, so we'll go there, give it everything and I think it's going to be a great occasion for everyone. Everyone's looking forward to it."
