It's a big game - Jade

It's a big game - Jade - 12 Dec 2008 - Women's Football NewsCoventry City travel to Leicester City in the F.A.Women's Cup this Sunday in a clash between the two clubs who battled it out for the Midland Combination title last season.
It was Leicester who won out in the end as they won the Championship and promotion to the Premier League and Coventry will be hoping for a happier outcome this weekend. "We're all looking forward to it as it is a big game," Coventry winger Jade Formaston told Women's Soccer Scene. "Whenever Coventry meet Leicester, it is always a big rivalry."
The highly rated player admitted that memories of last season's experiences are likely to spur them on. "They beat us in the last game of the season to win the league," she recalls. "It would be nice to get one back on them, let's see what happens on the day."
A tight game is expected and the Sky Blues have already squeezed through in the previous round against TNS Ladies in order to meet Leicester. "It was really close," says Jade, "we won on penalties - we were 2-0 down at one stage but managed to bring it back. We're expecting the Leicester game to be no different as we know quite a lot about them."
Coventry recently took over the leadership of the Midland Combination, replacing Derby County at the top by beating them 2-1. "We've hit a good bit of form," adds Jade. "We started off a little shakily but have got better all of the time and have now won six games on the bounce so confidence is really high.
"We changed managers during the summer and it took us a little time to gel under the new manager Paul Cudby. But now we are all working hard as a team and have developed a winning attitude - everyone has put in a lot of hard work and it is all going well at this time."
Jade herself is facing a race against time in order to be fully fit for the match following a hip injury sustained in the recent win over Derby County. "All being well, I will be fit," she says. "I will have to see how it is on the day - it is touch and go but I'll be doing my best to be there.
"It came from a 50-50 tackle with a Derby player, her studs caught my hip and it was painful. Thankfully it wasn't serious but my hip is bruised and it is taking a long time to go away, that area usually takes a little while to heal."
If Coventry can get past Leicester on Sunday, who would Jade like to face in the Fourth Round? "Anyone easy really," she laughs. "Seriously, maybe the winners of the game between Wolves and Aston Villa, or even Birmingham City, playing them would be a great experience."
Whatever happens on Sunday, Coventry have their eyes firmly fixed on a title challenge and regaining their Premier League status. "The league has been really close this year," admits Jade, "we've got back on top but it is going to be tight as a number of teams will feel they have a good chance.
"Derby were top for a while and have done very well so far, and Wolves impressed us when we played them earlier in the season. I think that those two teams will be our main challengers this time.
"It would be great if we can win the league and get into the Premier League at the end of the season and I think we can win it this year."
