Exeter City Women will be hunting a place in the League Cup Plate Quarter Finals as London Seaward visit the Exwick Hub on Sunday.
Seaward have enjoyed a steady start to the 2023/24 campaign, sitting eighth in Division One South East after winning two and drawing two of their opening seven games. However, the East London side will be keen to address a downturn in current form, with only one win in their last six games. That victory for Dan McKimm’s side earned their place in Sunday’s tie, Samantha Lanza scoring twice against Chatham Town to knock out their higher league opponents.
Lanza has been the main threat for Seaward this season, hitting five goals in her eleven appearances. Megan Burrows is another player standing it in a large squad, twenty-nine players already featuring for McKimm’s side this term.
With only two teams in a higher division remaining in the competition, the Grecians will be hoping to utilise the quality of their own squad to reach the latter stages of the tournament. With forty-four goals in their last eight games and a run of eight consecutive victories, Abbie Britton and Aaron Wakley’s side are certainly in form and will be looking to advance in a tough tie against their London based opponents.
With FA Cup, County Cup and League games all in the coming weeks, the run in to Christmas represents a crucial spell for the aspirations of the Grecians squad this season.
