The Posh Women are back on the road in FA Women’s National League.
Peterborough United Women travel to Trevor Brown Memorial Ground to face title hopefuls Boldmere St Michaels in a FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands fixture on Sunday afternoon (2pm).
This is a rescheduled fixture from earlier in the season after the game was abandoned on 70 minutes due to heavy snowfall, with the Posh trailing 4-2 at the time.
Dan Lawlor’s sides recorded three wins on the bounce in the National League after a 3-2 victory over Burton Albion Ladies last weekend, while Boldmere St Michaels go into the encounter on the back of a 3-0 victory over Wem Town Ladies and have yet to lose in the league since early November.
Posh remain without the services of midfielders Stacey McConville and Katie Steward, who suffered a dislocated thumb in the victory over Bedworth United last month. Dan Lawlor confirmed some of the squad picked up a few knocks on Sunday, but they should be available for this weekend trip to Boldmere St Michaels.
Defender Natalie Hurst participated in light training on Wednesday evening and could be in-contention to make her debut for the Posh after signing for the club at the beginning of January.
Boldmere St Michaels welcomed the signing of Pip Wilson, who made her debut in their 3-0 win over Wem Town Ladies on Sunday whilst also netting her first goal for the club. The hosts enter the fixture on the back of three consecutive clean sheets in the National League.
From the Gaffer
“Boldmere are a really good team, a strong side who are currently pushing for promotion and recent results have shown they have a very good chance of achieving that before the end of the season. They are a team that get forward well, especially with quick wingers, and overall a well-organised team, but we can hurt them as much as they can hurt us.”
“They were beating us before our game got abandoned earlier in the season, so of course that will give them a that extra motivation ahead of Sunday, but the squad is a lot different to how it was before. We are in good form, more confident, and we believe we can come away with something this weekend.”
Updates for the match against Boldmere St Michaels will be live on our Twitter account @theposhwomen from 1pm, followed by match reaction and report after the full-time whistle.
The Posh Women reserves return to East Midlands Women Regional Football League Division One South action on Sunday afternoon (3pm) as they welcome Nottingham Forest Women FC Development side to the idverde training ground.
The reserves fell to a 8-2 defeat against Loughborough Foxes Vixens First in their previous fixture, while Nottingham Forest were knocked out of the league cup after a 2-0 defeat to Northampton Town Women.
