Lionesses set sights on Cup surprise
 Women's Football FA Women's Cup News - 17 Mar 2017
 
Millwall Lionesses are preparing for their trip to newly promoted WSL 1 side Bristol City in the SSE Women's FA Cup Fifth Round.
 
The Lionesses will be entering the game off the back of a 0-0 draw in the Spring Series against newly promoted side Brighton & Hove Albion where the Lionesses had 21 shots on goal but failed to find the back of the net. In their previous FA Cup game, the Lionesses ran out 3-1 winners against FA Women's Premier League Northern Division side Nottingham Forest.
 
Lionesses midfielder Leigh Nicol is in no doubt about the task that is facing her side on Sunday. "The FA Cup is always a tight one, I don't think you can ever really call it," she said. "Bristol are in the league above so we respect that. But last year we had two tight games against them. They were the best team we played last year without a doubt, they played some excellent football and we'll respect them as a squad and they've got some excellent individuals."
 
Although the Lionesses are yet to find a win in the league, they have performed well and it should be a matter of time before they get back to winning ways again and that win could potentially come on Sunday. Nicol said: "I hope so, the performances have been literally faultless apart from in the final third. We feel really hard done by as it is, we just hope that luck does turn and things start to go our way in the final third and start turning them stats into goals. But, yes there's no reason it can't be Sunday if we take our chances.
 
"I think that it's going to be vital that none of us lose concentration at any point, or give away silly fouls on the edge of the box because we know they're dangerous there and have some very good free kick takers."
 
Lionesses defender Leanne Cowan also spoke of how the team may be underrated but still have a chance in the game. "I think we've got more of a chance than people actually think we do," she insisted, "because the two games that we played against them last year, they beat us 2-1 away and at home but in both games, we played some really good football.
 
"I actually think if we go out there and play some of the football we've been playing in training, if we work together as a team and we work hard for the whole game, I think we'll really give them a good test. They were one of the better teams in the league last year, but every time we played them we didn't back down and I think in the end it made us play better football when we play teams like that because we knew we had to work harder and move the ball better. So yes, I think we have a good chance."
