The Posh Women return to FA Women’s National League action on Sunday.
Peterborough United travel to Grange Park to face title hopefuls Long Eaton United Ladies on Sunday afternoon (2pm) in their first FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands fixture since the turn of the year, also facing the Nottingham-based side for the third time this season.
Dan Lawlor’s side secured a place in the semi-final of the Northants County Cup last weekend after a comfortable 7-1 victory over Roade LFC, while Long Eaton United Ladies scored a late winner against Solihull Moors to secure a 3-2 victory in the National League at the weekend.
Posh Women completed the signings of defender Nat Hurst and Katie Lowder this week after joining from Holwell Sports and both will go straight into the squad for this weekend’s trip to Long Eaton United Ladies.
Recent arrival Evie Driscoll-King made her debut for The Posh in the victory over Roade LFC on Sunday, putting in an impressive performance in defence and will be involved on Sunday.
There are no new injury concerns after all players came unscathed in the Northants County Cup tie. Midfielder Stacey McConville remains unavailable after suffering an ankle injury last month.
From The Gaffer
“Every game now is important; we have a big month coming up against teams around us, so each game we play now is momentum going into the next one and pick up points along the way. Having face them three time already this season, both sides know what to expect from eachother but going to Grange Park on a bouncy pitch and a cold Sunday will not be an easy game. They’re a physical side, quick and strong, can play the ball in behind, and well-organised, but we’re in a much better position now and go into Sunday’s very confident.”
Updates for the match against Long Eaton United Ladies will be live on our Twitter account @theposhwomen from 1pm, followed by match reaction and report after the full-time whistle.
