Lady Black Cats to be reunited with Reds.

Sunderland Ladies will welcome WSL giants Liverpool to Eppleton CW in the fifth round of the FA Cup in April.

The Lady Black Cats ran out 4-1 winners over Watford yesterday having also seen off Oxford in the third round.

The tie is a repeat of last season's quarter-final, when the Merseyside club notched a narrow 2-1 win at the Academy of Light.

Katrin Omarsdottir netted a last-minute goal to send the visitors through after Beth Mead had cancelled out Lillie Fenlon-Billson’s first-half strike.

Liverpool also went on to win the WSL title, finishing five points ahead of Bristol Academy and qualifying for the 2014-15 Champions League in the process.

The tie will take place on Sunday 13th April, with ticketing information to be confirmed.
