Lincoln City Women captain Amy Kay says the side will relish being underdogs when their record-breaking Women's FA Cup run takes them to Liverpool.

Sunday's game will be a challenge for the Imps as they head to Prenton Park to take on the FA Women's Championship side in the fourth round. It is the furthest they have got in the competition since being reformed and aligning themselves with the men's club.

Amy said: "The FA Cup is huge, everyone gets excited about it in the men's and women's game.

"We have not been further than the second round so that was an achievement in itself, and our target is just to get better each year. We were losing against Northampton in the last minute and scored to take it to extra time, so the journey so far has been a competitive one.

"For our area it is huge. For every player in the squad we're the underdog competition so we use that as motivation."

Amy, who works in the club's Foundation as football development officer, says the tie is a reward for the growing support Lee Mitchell's side as they push for promotion from the FA Women's Division One Midlands.

She added: "We have regular fans at every game and for them to be able to follow us against Liverpool is something they've not had for a while, it's also giving the younger players a taste and when they're older hopefully these fixtures will be a more regular thing.

"The players, coaching staff and all the people behind the scenes - past and present - who have brought the city a women's team again deserve this fixture."

Kick-off is 2pm on Sunday, with commentary of the match from Radio Lincolnshire available on the BBC Sport website.
