Marc Skinner insisted Manchester United would not underestimate Championship side Lewes ahead of their FA Cup quarter-final tie on Sunday.Lewes are the lowest ranked team left in the competition and host a United team who currently sit second in the Super League.Skinner ruled out Sunday being a potential “banana skin” as he reiterated that his squad had fully prepared to expose the home side.“We don’t see anyone like that (being a potential banana skin), we’ve prepared fully for Lewes.

We’ve looked at all their games, we’ll look at how they play, we’ll look at how we can play against them, how we can expose them and I think what that does is, it takes away the banana skin potential,” Skinner said.“Anyone on their day can get fortune or can have some good play and then get luck at moments but what we have to do is create enough momentum in the game, enough positions for us to score.

If we do that then it’s a part of playing against any opponent, it doesn’t matter if you’re playing against Lewes or not.“We won’t take them lightly.

They should expect the very best of us and if they do that, we will be in a position to try and progress.”Sunday’s fixture comes a week after United’s controversial 1-0 defeat in the WSL to league-leaders Chelsea.
