Lincoln City manager Richard Cooper admits that his team are relishing the opportunity to take on West Bromwich Albion in the Second Round of the Women's FA Cup this Sunday.
The FAWNL Division One Midlands side, formerly known as Nettleham, are doing well in what is only their second season in the league and will go into the match on the back of an excellent run of form which has seen them win all of their last eight matches.
"We have played West Bromwich Albion a number of times over the past 18 months and they have always been tight and closely fought physical encounters," he explained to Women's Soccer Scene.
"They have always held the upper hand over us but as we have continually improved and progressed over this period of time it promises to be another great game.
"We go into the game full of confidence on the back of a run of eight straight wins and we will give every ounce of effort to get a result and make history for our club by being in the hat for the Third Round draw for the first time ever."
Lincoln captain Chloe Brock-Taylor added: "This FA Cup tie is a really good opportunity for us to progress. Not only are West Bromwich Albion from the league above, we have a bit of history with them, which is what will make it such an exciting game.
"As of yet, we haven't managed to come out on top against them, however, during our League Plate encounter earlier in the season we had a very close game, where we competed well against them. Since then we have massively improved as a squad, so I think all of us can say we are up for it and ready for a good battle!"
