Todays fixture sees the ladies take on Thornaby women in the Women’s FA Cup.
Coming off the back of a draw to Consett last week there is a real buzz about todays game.
Robert ‘Rusty’ Melrose is fully confident on todays game.”I’m looking forward to it. It’s been a positive week on and off the pitch. We haven’t faced these in the league this season yet, but we have full confidence in the ladies”
“Last game we were not at our best but deserved the point and battled till the very end. Some decisions didn’t go our way, but we overcame them.”
“It’s huge, it’s the fa cup. everyone who’s involved in football knows, it would mean a lot to get back to winning ways and no better game to do it than the cup.”
Thornaby currently sit two points above Gateshead in the league.
When asked if this game will set up some good encounters in the future.
“Yeah, this will give us a good idea of how they set up certain players. We will take this game first, but we will have a good understanding of their game for next time.”
