Brighton & Hove Albion women are hoping for another bumper crowd this weekend, as they look to continue their impressive run in this season’s SSE Women’s FA Cup.
The Seagulls welcome Blackburn Rovers to the Sussex County FA HQ at Culver Road, Lancing for a fourth round tie on Sunday, having already beaten Luton Town 7-0 and Oxford United 10-0 in the second and third rounds respectively.
