After penalty shootout heartache for Saints last-time-out, Marieanne Spacey-Cale’s side have a chance to bounce back in another cup competition this weekend.

They host Crawley Wasps for the second time this season after meeting already at Snows Stadium in the league back in November.

Saints booked their place in the semi-final with a narrow victory over Hashtag United in the quarter-finals; Katie Rood scoring the winner with two minutes of normal time remaining.

Crawley also enjoyed a home win with fine margins, beating high-flying Southern Premier side Oxford United 1-0 at home.

The winner of Sunday’s semi-final will face either Liverpool Feds or Huddersfield town in the final.

MANAGER’S NOTES

“The Ipswich match was a credit to the two teams and it was an advert for women’s football and the pathway.

“We’ve got to grow from that, we’ve got to learn from that and we’ve got to come back stronger again.

“I trust these players and I know what they’ll do. They’ll support each other and we’ll be ready for Sunday’s game."
