Team News

Posh continue to be without midfielders Eden Bailey and Beatriz Borque, as well as forward Zaiga Lacite who is still recovering from an injury picked up in pre-season. Stacey McConville will also be unavailable after picking up an injury against Wem Town at the weekend.

Megan Lawlor returned to the squad in Posh’s fixture at the weekend and is fully fit to re-join the starting XI, Katie Steward will also be available once again on Wednesday night.

The Imps retain most of their squad that finished third in the division last season, but have welcomed the arrival of Millie Fulger, Eden Perdeson, Lucy Farrow and Abi Ringrose.

From The Gaffer

“We’re very excited. It’s a tough game, and I just hope with the amount of people coming to watch that we don’t do ourselves an injustice, and that we can go out there and show everyone what this team can do because it’s a really good team.

“If we can go there and beat Lincoln on Wednesday night, it is a statement. In their first game of the season, they played against Doncaster Belles who are probably the favourites to win it, and they only lost 3-2, and it was really tight.

“We can’t look at other results, we have to concentrate on what we do. If we do the things we do well and better than them, then we win the game.”

Posh Women v Lincoln City Women

Posh Women recorded a momentous evening at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Over 2,000 supporters witnessed Peterborough United Women record an emphatic 4-1 victory over Lincoln City Women in the FA Women’s National League on Wednesday evening in their first-ever competitive game at the Weston Homes Stadium.

The players were welcomed to a record-breaking crowd for a women’s game at the Weston Homes Stadium, and they certainly didn’t disappoint with their performance as they came from 1-0 down to seal back-to-back wins in the league.

Lincoln City were the dominant side in the opening half an hour and opened the scoring after just seven minutes after a failed interception from the Posh defence, which saw Lucy Farrow coolly slot the ball past Neive Corry.

Posh looked for an immediate response as Kayleigh Aylmer’s free kick from the left-hand side smashed against the crossbar. The Imps continued to apply pressure, but Posh soon turned the tables in the last ten minutes. A brilliant through ball from Jessica Driscoll on 35 minutes found Cassie Steward through on-goal, but was pushed onto the crossbar by Poppy Irvine.

On the stroke of half-time, Tara Kirk levelled the scores with an outrageous finish as Kayleigh Aylmer delivered a brilliant ball over Lincoln City’s defence, with Kirk hitting the ball on the volley and the ball dinked over the keeper’s head.

Posh’s new-found dominance continued throughout the second half, with The Imps’ only threat falling on 51 minutes with a Leah Hardy free kick that was inches over the crossbar. Posh extended their lead on 58 minutes after a scramble in the opposition’s box saw one of Lincoln’s defenders tap the ball into their own net.

Just nine minutes later, Cassie Steward got her name on the scoresheet again after Keir Perkins’ cross found Driscoll on the edge of the box, her first-time effort fell to C. Steward inside the box and she poked home from close-range.

Keir Perkins netted a fourth on 82 minutes, but the celebrations were short-lived after the linesman was flagged for offside. However, just seven minutes later, Kayleigh Aylmer extended Posh advantage as her corner kick was punched into her own net by Poppy Irvine.

Posh XI: Corry, Aylmer, Copson (Connor, 46 mins), Mugridge, Driscoll-King (Lawlor, 81 mins), Evans, Horner, Driscoll, C. Steward, Perkins, Kirk (K. Steward, 55 mins).

Subs: Markwell, Hendrick.
