The Women return to National League action on Sunday.
After almost two months since our last FA Women’s National League fixture, Peterborough United Women travel to face Boldmere St Michaels, coincidentally the last side they face in the league, at Trevor Brown Memorial Ground on Sunday (2pm).
Posh breezed into the quarter-final of the Northants County Cup after a comfortable 6-0 victory over Northampton Town Women Development side. Boldmere St Michaels, who are second in the league, enjoyed an 8-1 victory in their respective County Cup fixture.
Midfielder Ellen Marson is set to spend a lengthy spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury in the 4-0 defeat against Long Eaton in FA Cup earlier this month, with defender Elizabeth Santiago also unavailable.
They could also be potential call-ups for some reserve players this weekend, including midfielder Larrisa Frederick.
From Dan Lawlor
“It’s important for us to get going in the league now, we had a fixture put in on us at the last minute, but we will be ready for it. Teams play different home and away, depending on the surfaces, but we know what to expect from Boldmere St Michaels, you have to just look at their results and league position. All we can do is play to our best and hopefully we can come away with those point because, at the moment, it’s important we do.”
Updates for the match against Long Eaton United will be live on our Twitter account @theposhwomen from 1pm, followed by match reaction and report after the full-time whistle.
Posh Women reserves are also in East Midlands Women's Regional Football League action on Sunday as they welcome Anstey Nomads Women to the Idverde training ground (3pm). The visitors are currently second in the league and won 5-0 against Oadby & Wigston Ladies in their previous fixture, whereas the reserves fell to a heavy defeat away to Thrapston Town Ladies.
