AFC Bournemouth CST take on Southampton FC Women in the First Round of the Vitality Women's FA Cup this Sunday and the Southern Region League side are approaching the match in front of a sell out crowd with quiet confidence.
"I'm really looking forward to Sunday as I think it will be a good challenge for us as a squad and I know that if we perform on the day, there's no reason why we shouldn't win this," Cherries defender Kayleigh Wort told Women's Soccer Scene. "It's also great to be at home as it's a ground we are comfortable in.
"If we won on Sunday it would mean so much. We would prove how strong we are as a squad and show everyone that when we work together, we can beat teams in higher leagues. It would also be amazing to make history for the club as they've supported us so much and it would be giving something back.
"The FA Cup means a lot to me as it's a chance to show outsiders where the club could be and should be in terms of level. It's a chance to be challenged and play against teams we wouldn't usually. It's also a time to leave nothing out on the pitch and as Steve [Cuss] says, ‘have no regrets.'"
Bournemouth manager Steve Cuss added: "The FA Cup journey so far has provided many highs, and created some good memories and to still be in the competition four months after starting it is a fantastic achievement by the players. Sunday's game is a real challenge, Southampton are proven to be a very good side but it's a game that we can look forward to going into with confidence with our pre-lockdown results.
"In terms of making history for the football club, we've equalled the furthest we have ever got to in the competition and that is testament to the players who have all worked extremely hard and performed well. We know the game is sold out and we want the players to enjoy it and I'm sure it will be a good advert for the women's game."
