We can give them a game - Bonnie

We can give them a game - Bonnie - 25 Jan 2008 - Women's Football NewsBonnie Horwood will find herself up against some familiar faces when she lines up for WFC Fulham against Birmingham City in the Fifth Round of the F.A.Women's Cup on Sunday.
The former England under-19 international midfielder recently rejoined Fulham from Birmingham but, although playing her old club is an extra incentive, she has nothing but praise for the Blues. "I really enjoyed it at Birmingham, they are a good club," she told Women's Soccer Scene. "But I needed a bit more time on the pitch and coming back to Fulham was always the best move for me."
Looking ahead to the game, Bonnie is confident that the Southern Division title chasers can be a match for their top flight opponents. "We can give them a game," she says. "Playing against a Premiership club is good for us, and we are at home as well. A lot of my friends play for Birmingham and I am looking forward to it.
"It will be a good test for us, as we will know how near or far we are to being a team who can play in the division. A lot of the Fulham team have played at the top level, so that experience will be vital for us on the day."
The game also gives Bonnie to reach a stage of the Cup for the first time in her career. "I have never played in the quarter finals before," she admits. "I did get to the Fifth Round when I was previously with Fulham.
"I think it is important for the club to get through to the later stages, both for the prize money and the chance to raise our profile once again."
Whatever the result on Sunday, the longer term aim for Fulham is to regain their National Division status following their relegation at the end of last season. "We are top of the league and seven points clear, but teams have games in hand on us," says Bonnie, "but as long as we keep on winning we should hopefully be okay. "We still have to play Portsmouth at home and that is going to be a big game.
"I was always happy at Fulham and loved the club when I was here before, and it is great to be back here again. Some of the players from then are still here and I am really enjoying it. There isn't a major difference in playing in this division and the training at Fulham is similar, although the fitness is a lot harder here.
"We are determined to make it back up again and I feel it is very important for the club to be promoted. I would love to go up with Fulham as I want to get back into the England set up again and playing in the top division would be a great help.
"No team has ever won promotion back to the top flight after being relegated into the Southern Division and we want to make history."
