Ilminster Town have had a good start to the new season, having won all of their games so far, and this Sunday provides the South West League side with a real opportunity to show they are going in the right direction against the National League opposition in the shape of Poole Town.
The Somerset club have made good progress in recent seasons and are aiming to take their first National League scalp when the sides meet at the Archie Gooch Pavilion.
Ilminster captain Sarah Miller told Women's Soccer Scene: "‘The girls are buzzing at the moment, we have started really well and with the new additions, coach and player wise over the summer, there is already a real togetherness of the group. The players that have come in have settled in quickly and we feel at the moment this is a strong group.
"We go into the Poole game off the back of a great result down at Callington last week, it was a difficult pitch to play on and it was a battling gritty performance from the girls.
"We certainly can go into the game knowing we can put in that type of performance as well as good footballing performances."
The fixture will be Ilminster's third in the competition this season, a good opening day win at Banwell, followed by Pen Mill pulling out of the competition, Ilminster then got this far after last Sunday's win down at Callington.
Manager Craig Stuckey added: "The girls have nothing to lose on Sunday, we can go into the fixture confident after our start to the season but also knowing the emphasis is probably on Poole to come here and get a result.
"We haven't played against Poole in any format for a couple of years so I am sure both teams have changed quite a lot in that time.
"I'm not overly looking at the opposition at the moment, it's more about this group of players developing and seeing what we can go and do this season. The squad is really competitive and myself, along with the rest of the coaching staff, have some difficult decisions to make before Sunday as all the girls will want to be involved."
