Becky Salicki/ Sunderland WFC

It's FA Women's Premier League Cup Semi-Final day on Sunday and Sunderland host Blackburn Rovers in one of the ties. We quiz defender Becky Salicki ahead of the big match...

SK: Is this the biggest game of your season?
BS: For us, we take each game we play as a big game but I would say this is so far one of the biggest games. We have a game against Cardiff next weekend, which is the league title decider and that could also be seen as our biggest game.

SK: Where is the game being played?
BS: It’s being played at our home ground at the Hetton Centre in Hetton Le Hole. 

SK: Are you expecting to start the game?
I honestly have no idea but I hope so!! 

SK: What is your position?
My main position is centre back but I can play full back and also in goal!

SK: Will you/the team do anything different in the lead up to kick off?
BS: We will most likely do nothing different. The gaffer has emphasised to us that preparation is key and I know the girls will ensure they do what is asked of them.

SK: What do you know about the opposition, Blackburn Rovers?
BS: I know they are a tough, physical side with some pace so it should be a good game.

SK: What are your chances of winning?
BS: I think if we have the right attitude and prepare properly then we have a good chance of winning but it all comes down to what happens on the day.

SK: What will be key to you having success on the day?
BS: Proper preparation, good attitude and team effort. 

SK: What should someone who is coming to watch you for the first time, know about you and/or the team?!
We are a team that they will hopefully enjoy watching. We are a team that give everything for each other and have a never say die attitude. And about me? My favourite number is 14 and I try and get that shirt whenever I can!

SK: What will you do after the game?
Probably eat. I'm known for eating anything and everything!

Neither are workable or likely at present but hypothetically, would you prefer a more strict salary cap in the FA WSL OR should centrally contracted England players (that receive salaries from The FA) be allocated more evenly around WSL1 clubs?
