Exeter City are looking forward to taking on Cheltenham Town in the Women's FA Cup on Sunday, and aiming to go one better than last season's competition when they were narrowly beaten 1-0 by the Gloucestershire side, when playing in the South West Women's League.
The Devon side have since been promoted to the FA Women's National League and have acquitted themselves well at the higher level with four wins in five games as well as beating Plymouth Argyle in the League Cup, but they are yet to meet Cheltenham so far this season.
First team coach Aaron Wakley is confident that his team are ready for the challenge against one of their fellow Division One South West high fliers and he told Women's Soccer Scene: "Sunday will be a big test for us, coming up against a strong side but I think we have more than enough in our squad to be able to make it a top quality game, after last season's disappointment it will be good to go one better.
"The FA Cup is always a great competition to be a part of, so getting though to the first round proper would be fantastic for us."
Exeter vice captain Manfy Sharpe added: "I am really looking forward to the game, there's always something a little special about an FA cup game and it would be good to have a decent run in this famous competition.
"After last year's games, I feel as if we have unfinished business at Cheltenham. We were huge underdogs and narrowly lost the game 1-0 after some dubious decisions. I know it will be a really tough test for us but I am confident it's one we are capable of pulling off and that as a team we are in the right mindset and go into the game in a good run of form.
"We want to go far in this competition and will be going all out Sunday to win the game."
