Belles relish "fantastic opportunity"
 Women's Football News 7 Dec 2008
Belles relish Doncaster Rovers Belles will be looking to book their place in their first major final for over a decade when they take on Preston North End in their FA Tesco Women's Premier League Cup semi final at the Keepmoat Stadium on Sunday (2pm).
"I travelled down to London for the draw and it's fair to say that we got the tie that we wanted," said Belles assistant manager Paul Green. "We couldn't have asked for anything more in a major semi final than to drawn at home against lower league opposition.
"The game gives us a fantastic opportunity to reach the final if we play to our capabilities.
"Manager John Buckley and myself went to watch Preston in a league game at Lincoln couple of weeks ago. They have got a few players who have played in the Premier Division with Blackburn and we certainly won't be treating them lightly. But we'd be very disappointed if we didn't get through knowing how good we can be on our day."
Cash-strapped Belles have belied their financial worries to climb to fourth in the table. "It might have surprised some people how well we have done, but not ourselves," said Green. "We finished last season really strongly and if you look at the stats we were the third best team in the second half of the season.
"So we had a lot of momentum going into the start of the season - not least because of the quality acquisitions that we had made."
It is six years since Belles, for years the dominant force in the domestic game, reached a major final, and even longer since they won a title but Green says that if the club can ride out their financial problems, the good days could soon be back.
"If we can keep the current side together then they can go as far as they want," he said.
