It all starts with a rearranged Women's FA Cup fifth round tie against Crystal Palace at Hayes Lane on Tuesday night.

Tuesday 25th February - Women's FA Cup fifth round: Crystal Palace v Albion, kick-off 7.45pm

Two days after they lost 1-0 at home to Tottenham in the WSL, Albion's women head to Bromley to take on Championship side Crystal Palace in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The tie should have been played last week, but was postponed because of adverse weather conditions. The winners will be at home to Birmingham City on Sunday 15th March.

Albion have a 100 per cent record against Championship opposition this season, having beaten London City Lionesses, Charlton and London Bees in the Continental League Cup, before knocking out Aston Villa 3-2 in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Palace drew 1-1 with London City in their most recent league game on Sunday, and have won twice in the Championship this season.

Simon Rusk's side head to Derby County on Friday for an encounter between the sides currently third and fourth in the table.

The Seagulls climbed to third following a 2-1 win over Manchester City a fortnight ago - their fourth win in the last five league games. They have since beaten Bognor Regis Town 7-2 in the Sussex Senior Cup.
