Preview: Willie Kirk Looks Ahead At Man City Clash

Bristol City Women play league champions Manchester City in the SSE Women's FA Cup on Sunday (KO 2pm).

Bristol City Women head coach Willie Kirk previews Sunday's game as the Vixens face Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the SSE Women’s FA Cup.

"It will be a huge challenge but an exciting one," said Kirk.

"I am sure there will be some nerves but it is certainly the stage all our players want to be on.

"They want to test themselves against the best players in the world and that is what we will have with Man City.

"A lot of our younger players have never played at this level before so they won't know what to be scared of, they will be going it the game with no fear."

The tie will take place at 2pm on Sunday, March 26th at the Stoke Gifford Stadium in Bristol.

Manchester City defeated Reading 1-0 yesterday to make it through to the last eight, with their new signing, World Player of the Year Carli Lloyd making her debut.

The Vixens meanwhile romped to a 5-0 victory over Millwall Lionesses to make it to the quarter-final stage for the first time since finishing as runners-up in 2013.
