Brighouse relishing Sunderland trip
 Women's Football FA Women's Cup News - 4 Feb 2018
FA Women's Cup News - Brighouse relishing Sunderland trip - 4 Feb 2018 - Women's Football NewsBrighouse Town will approach this week's SSE Women's FA Cup Fourth Round tie against Sunderland with plenty of optimism and in good form.
The FAWPL Northern Division One title chasers have had a tremendous season to date, for as well as performing well in the league (they currently sit in third place), they have made it to the Fourth Round stage for the first time in their history and this week reached the quarter finals of the Premier League Cup - also for the first time - knocking higher division side Derby County out of both competitions on the way.
A year ago, Brighouse Town got as far as the Third Round where they were beaten by then WSL 2 side Everton, however this time they have the chance to take on opponents from the top flight and manager Rob Mitchell told Women's Soccer Scene that they are relishing the occasion.
"We are very much looking forward to the game," he said. "The opportunity to test ourselves against a WSL1 side is something we will hopefully thrive off.
"We're in good form of late, beating several sides from the division above, this however is a different challenge but we're not travelling all the way to Sunderland to just make up the numbers, we want to win and feel we have every chance to do just that.
"When you have a strike force that boasts 36 goals you've always got a chance, both Jodie Redgrave and Aimi Beresford have been firing on all cylinders of late and will be looking to do the same again this Sunday in the SSE FA Women's Cup.
"We know we're massive underdogs and very few people will give us any chance of progressing, but we know what we're capable of. All it takes is a bit of luck, Sunderland have an off day and we take a chance, anything can happen in the cup and we will do all we can to progress!"
"A massive achievement to get this far but one we never doubted would happen," added defender and vice captain Emma Dobson. We have defeated two higher placed opponents on the way here, but the truth is we always thought we would beat them. Sunderland will be a very tough test, we go to win, however we are under no illusions that this will be a slightly different kettle of fish to the previous rounds."
