After beating Plymouth Argyle 3-0 on Sunday, Southampton FC Women will be at home again in the Third Round of the Vitality Women's FA Cup this Sunday to Yeovil United.
Saints manager Marieanne Spacey-Cale had a fantastic record in the competition as a player and is anticipating a tough tie for her talented young side against their opponents from the level above.
"I think Yeovil are going to be a real challenge for us," she told southampton.com. "It wasn't long ago they were in the Women's Super League and they're another team who've come back in with an intensity and a desire to get into the next stage of the FA Cup.
"We had two good results against them but things have changed so much in the last twelve months. We certainly respect them as an opponent so we're going to have to work hard and really challenge ourselves in order to get a result on Sunday."
Midfielder Phoebe Williams, also speaking to southampton.com, added: "The atmosphere after the [Plymouth] game was great and it's so good to be back now. It's so great to be back here with the girls and the coaches.
"When we played Yeovil last season we had two tough games and I think it's another great opportunity for us to show what we're capable of achieving against higher opponents.
"The girls are just so excited for it because now the FA Cup is the only competitive games we have left this season."
Caitlin Morris recently earned her first call up to the senior Wales squad and the 21-year-old full back is also looking forward to a hard match. "The last two games we've played against them were really close. But we're ready and wanting to go in and play our best," she told southampton.com.
"We're expecting a tough game so we'll be ready for that. We're hoping to go out there and counteract their strengths and exploit some of their weaknesses. Play our way and play our style.
"With the league being cancelled the incentive to keep winning [in the FA Cup] and as a result keep playing is there and is a really big motivator."
