Wednesday seek another happy day
 Women's Football News 25 Feb 2011
Sheffield Wednesday will be looking to build on their victory in the previous round over Cardiff City as they play Rochdale in the F.A.Women's Cup Fourth Round.
The Northern Combination side will come up against the team which ironically replaced them in the Premier League and manager Adam Smallman has full faith in his players. "Sunday's game is going to be tough but you expect that when you reach this stage of the competition," he says. "Chantelle [Parry] will be a key member of their team but they have a number of players that we will need to stop for us to progress.
"We started in the Third Round qualifying with an away tie at Huddersfield Town, then away ties at Stratford Town, Blackpool and Cardiff followed so it wasn't too big a surprise that we were drawn away again in this round but it will all come down to who wants it most on the day - as long as my girls give it their all, like they have in every round of this competition so far, then win or lose my trip back home to Staffordshire will be an okay one."
Goalkeeper Danni Maslin stated: "Training this week has been very upbeat and the mood within the squad is buoyant. We travelled to Cardiff with the belief that we could turn them over, and we have to have the same belief on Sunday. To get through to the next round would be a remarkable achievment for a team that lost quite a few players when we got relegated, but the mixture of experience, senior players and youngsters has really worked. It is going to be a difficult game but it is a one off game with a great prize at the end of it."
Wednesday chairman Jeff Maslin is quite outspoken on the money that the FA awards teams in this competition. "For teams our size, the outlay of travelling expenses, coaches and overnight stays (Cardiff) is tremendous," he said. "I have continually petitioned the FA for more money to be made available for the grass roots football teams which tends to fall on deaf ears. In my opinion there are only eight women's teams in this country that have something that amounts to cash stability. And that is only because of genorous sponsors and the FA ploughing all their time and resources into the WSL. Clubs like mine, Millwall, Fulham etc are the ones that suffer.
"Apart from that, what a great cup run we are on. Although we have been drawn away in all our previous ties it has been a great journey and the belief in the camp is that it could go on. This is definitely a major game for Sheffield Wednesday and a win could reap all kinds of rewards as the WSL teams enter the competition in the next round. What this cup run does do though is raise our profile, not only locally but also nationally, which can only be a good thing as we try to build a foundation for the club."
