The Charlton women’s reserve team will face Sunderland at home in the quarter finals of the FA Women’s Premier Reserve League Cup on Sunday 25 November - KO 1pm.
The Addicks have been in impressive form recently and have eased into this stage of the competition after 9-0 and 4-1 wins over Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.
Those victories have contributed to a run of six wins on the bounce, with 30 goals scored in that time and just three conceded leaving them three points off league leaders Chelsea.
Manager Stuart Weston, who has a 100 per cent record from five games in charge, is confident his side can defeat Sunderland if they perform how they have been.
He said: “We just have to go out and play our football and I think if we do that, from the performances they have put in, we can give anybody a good game.
“As long as they go in with the belief which, at the moment, as you would expect after six wins in a row, their confidence is sky high.
“It’s a cup game and anything can happen. Sunderland have got a long trip down so hopefully that will work in our favour.
“I can’t praise the girls enough for the way they are playing at the moment and I think if we play like that then we will give them a good game and we will go out with the belief we can win it.”
Sunderalnd play in the FA Women's Premier League Reserve Midlands/North Division One and are currently in 4th position behing Blackburn, Manchester City & Everton. So with the Addicks in 3rd position in the South Division One it should be an exciting and evenly contested encounter.
