Eastbourne Town are enjoying a good Cup run so far, and on Sunday they face their biggest test to date when they take on Leyton Orient for a place in the First Round of the Vitality Women's FA Cup.
The London & South East League Premier Division side have started well in the league and reached this stage with a penalty shootout victory over Dartford.
Eastbourne manager Zak Dove is relishing the chance of playing against National League opponents and he told Women's Soccer Scene: "Confident and excited is the best way i can describe how we feel going into the weekend.
"We have prepared as best we can. The game is a real opportunity for the squad to show the progress they have made. We go into it with real excitement.
"Yes we know it will be tough within periods of the game, but i also know that if we play at the levels previously shown then we are more than capable to go and win the game."
Captain Lucy Fletcher echoed her manager's quiet confidence and added: "All the girls are very excited and determined ahead of the game this weekend.
"There is a lot to be confident about with our form heading into this game but we are under no illusions that it's going to be a very challenging and competitive match.
"They are a good side, so we will be hoping to exploit some of their weaknesses with a strong performance and showcase how far we have come as a team this year. If we play to the level we are capable, I am positive we can come away with a win this weekend."
