The Posh Women face a midweek trip to Lincoln City.
Peterborough United Women travel to Moorland Sports Ground on Thursday evening (7:45pm) as they face title hopefuls Lincoln City in the FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands fixture.
Dan Lawlor’s side fell to a 3-2 defeat against Boldmere St Michaels in their previous FA Women’s National League encounter, ending a three-match winning run since the turn of the year. Lincoln City haven’t played in league action since the opening weekend of February as they were also beaten 4-2 by Solihull Moors.
Posh remain without midfielders Katie Steward and Stacey McConville for this week game against The Imps, with both ruled out for injuries. Beatriz Borque is expected to return to the matchday squad after missing the previous FA Women’s National League fixture while defender Kayleigh Aylmer will be hoping to push for a start after impressing in her cameo against Boldmere St Michaels.
Lincoln City were busy at the beginning of this month as they welcomed five new signings, including former Holwell Sports striker Chantelle Robinson who scored on her debut for the club in their win over Doncaster Rovers Belles.
From the Gaffer
“It was disappointing against Boldmere. They are a good side, and you can’t take nothing away from them, but we beat ourselves last week. The second half got better, but still not as good as the performance we should have put in. However, it will be interesting to see how we react to that loss this week after winning three games on the bounce.
“Lincoln are a tough side, well-organised and a strong team who are definitely challenging for that title. We don’t want another repeat of our previous encounter earlier this season, but you have to look back at the squad we had then to where we are now. We are a much stronger side and hopefully the players will go out there on Thursday and show we are determined to finish this season strongly.”
