Leeds look for Cup boost

Leeds look for Cup boost - 4 Jan 2008 - Women's Football NewsLeeds United kick off the New Year with a trip to Bristol Academy in the Fourth Round of the FA Women's Cup this Sunday.
 
Leeds will be hoping for an upturn in their fortunes after a loss to Blackburn Rovers and a 2-2 draw with bottom of the table Charlton Athletic during December.
 
Leeds have had impressive runs in the cups in recent years, having progressed through to the FA Women's Cup final in 2006 and the Premier League Cup final last season, so they will be looking to continue their cup successes in 2008.
 
"It's an important start to the year, and an exciting opportunity for every player at the club," said manager Rick Passmoor. "I have been disappointed with recent performances and have told the players that, but the thing that frustrates me more than anything is we have the talent and quality here in the players at Leeds to compete with any of the teams in the league and the cups, we just aren't showing the consistency in games."
 
One good bit of news for Leeds is the return to full fitness of England international Steph Houghton. "We played a friendly against Leicester during the break, which was for players to improve their match fitness and also give Leanne (Hall) and I a chance to look at a few fringe players to see if any of them are ready to push for a place in the first team squad," added Rick. "There were a couple who impressed me, who we will have a further look at in the near future.
 
"Steph came through her first 90 minutes for us and is getting stronger and improving her fitness all the time. It was important for her to get that game under her belt as she pushes towards a starting place."
