Women's Soccer Scene
Everyone is buzzing - Eva
 Women's Football FA Women's Cup News - 14 Feb 2020
Ipswich Town are having an excellent season to date and on Sunday, they get the chance to take on Manchester City in the Fifth Round of the Women's FA Cup at the Academy Stadium.
The FAWNL Division One South East table toppers were paired against the Cup holders after an impressive run in the competition, which has seen them eliminate three teams from a higher level in Chichester City, Portsmouth and Huddersfield Town en route to the last sixteen.
Eva Hubbard has been a regular member of the Ipswich side throughout their impressive campaign and the defender told Women's Soccer Scene that the chance to take on their illustrious opponents will be the icing on the cake.
"We are all really excited for Sunday's game," she said. "It's going to be an amazing experience and we are all really looking forward to it. The mood is really positive and everyone is buzzing.
"At the start of the season our main goal was to get promoted, so to think we have got through six rounds of the FA cup to get where we are and are still on track for promotion is a great thing for the club.
"The league is our priority but having a good cup run is really good for the club and attracting new supporters, especially when playing against big names such as Manchester City."
For one Ipswich player, the tie will have extra significance. Blue Wilson will be up against her former club, having joined the Suffolk side last summer. "Blue, like everyone else is buzzing," added Eva. "She wanted us to get City so she is really excited about it."
Eva also insisted that their main preparations for the tie would be the same as any other. "We tend to do lots of preparation for most of our game's so this will be no different, we will watch clips of City and try to work out what the best way to beat them.
"It will be different to our other away games with an overnight stay the night before but this is a good chance for us all to catch up and relax before the big game the next day.
"City will obviously have lots of depth in their squad and will have the ability to potentially play lots of different players and a lot of their players have international caps and are experienced in the WSL so it will be a real challenge coming up against the likes of Steph Houghton and Ellen White. This means every single one of us will be tested, but it's a great experience for us all as the WSL is where we all want to be in a few years time.
"The majority of our team are also part of the Under-21 side where we play development teams of WSL clubs, and sometimes first team players are used against us, but to play a completely senior WSL side will be a new experience for all of us and I'm sure a highlight in all of our football careers so far!
"The FA Cup is an amazing competition for teams like us that don't usually play against the bigger sides, so for us, it's a great experience to add to our excellent league form. We are hoping to get as far as possible in the Cup because it adds a new side to the squad and can get lots of attraction and excitement from supporters.
"The game on Sunday is an exciting break from the league as we have put lots of time into our preparation - but the league still remains our priority and we will work just as hard when we go back to the league the following week!
