Glen Harris wants Lincoln Ladies to beat Birmingham City to cup final spot
Glen Harris has challenged Lincoln Ladies to make history on two fronts when they host Birmingham City in the semi-final of the Continental Cup tomorrow.
Victory will see the Lady Imps grace a national final for the first time.
It would also mark their first victory over bogey side Birmingham, who have taken four points off Harris's side in the Women's Super League this season.
"We've already created history once this season when we beat Arsenal earlier in the competition," said Harris, whose side came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at Liverpool on Sunday in the FAWSL.

"The next step is reaching a major final. We also want to beat Birmingham for the first time too so let's make history on two fronts.
"We've always found them difficult to play against. They're quite direct and are good up front.
"When we played them in the league a few weeks ago they basically bullied us so we need to be up for the battle."
With the feel good factor from the Olympic Games still strong, Harris wants to see a bumper crowd at Ashby Avenue on Sunday (2pm).
Team GB women, featuring Lady Imps duo Casey Stoney and Sophie Bradley, beat Brazil 1-0 in front of more than 70,000 at Wembley on their way to the quarter-finals.
"It would be great to get a big crowd down there in support of our Olympians and Birmingham's," said Harris.
"Women's football is on the high and we need to try and build on that. Hopefully we can get a crowd 500 or 600."
Before Sunday, Lincoln return to league action tonight (Thursday) at Doncaster.
