The Ladies are back in FA Women’s National League action on Sunday afternoon (3pm) at Solihull Moors.
For a third consecutive weekend, Peterborough United Women’s are back on the road as they travel to Abacus Lighting Community Arena to face Solihull Moors Women in FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands on Sunday afternoon (3pm).
Chloe Brown side will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing 4-1 defeat to Leek Town Ladies last weekend, especially with another two tough games coming up next week. The vastly experienced Solihull Moors had a good start to the season, winning their opening two games and currently sit in mid-table, but have failed to win their last four league fixtures.
Defender Hollie Lewis returned to training on Wednesday evening for the first-time since suffering an ankle injury in the opening game of the season against Bedworth United last month. However, Lewis is still quite a few weeks away from making the matchday squad, with the FA Women’s National League Plate fixture on October 10 the pencilled in date. Attacker Piper O’Neill will be unavailable, but Brown will have a good selection of players to choose from on Sunday.
Solihull Moors are the highest-scoring team in the division so far, netting 17 goals in five games and will have the pleasure of coming into the game full of energy after a two-week break since their last fixture in the FA Women’s National League cup earlier this month.
From the Gaffer
“We need to review last weekend defeat, what positives we can take from it and the changes we need to make, but move into a fresh start this weekend. Solihull Moors have been in this league for quite a while now and have definitely got the experience, and I don’t want to keep repeating myself but we can’t go to any team in this division and expect to get an easy result. We got to make sure we teach them with respect, but if we go there and play our football like we can, there’s no reason for us to be afraid of them.”
Wayne Hinds’ reserve side are also on the road this weekend as they look to bounce back from the 5-1 defeat suffered against Kettering Town Women FC. The Reserves travel to Leicester Road Stadium to face Leicester Road Ladies & Girls Senior on Sunday afternoon (2pm) in an East Midlands Womens Regional Football League Division One South fixture.
