Exeter City Ladies ready to welcome Swindon
Exeter City's Ladies side continue their women's FA Cup adventure on Sunday with their second-round clash against Swindon Town.
The match will be played at Coach Road in Newton Abbot, home of Devon's Football Association and kicks off at 1pm. The team, coached by City right-back Steve Tully, reached this stage of the Cup for the first time in their history by thrashing Brislington 7-0 at St James' Park back on December 9.
Due to the adverse weather, that was the last time Tully's side were in action, having reached round one with a 9-3 demolition of Forest of Dean in November.
The ladies go into the game high in confidence, having won five and drawn three of their last seven fixtures and one of those draws was against Plymouth Argyle, who the girls then beat on penalties in the Ambassador Cup.

Football Secretary Mike Radford said: "We're very grateful to the Devon County FA for allowing us to use their pitch. It's a very welcome gesture and it's fantastic to have their backing.
"The facilities at the Coach Road stadium are excellent and the ladies will really enjoy playing there. Anyone that saw their display against Brislington at St James' Park will have been impressed with the standard, so hopefully they'll attract another big crowd to Newton Abbot."

Should City win, then they will pick up £300 in prize money (they have already picked up £475 so far) and go into the hat for Monday's third-round draw. That is when the Premier League National (second tier) teams enter.
