FA Women’s National League action returns to idverde training ground on Sunday afternoon.
Peterborough United Women welcome Solihull Moors Women to the idverde training ground on Sunday afternoon (3pm) in the penultimate FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands game of the season.
Dan Lawlor’s side continued their excellent run of form after a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Leafield Athletic Ladies last weekend extended their unbeaten run to five games in the league. Solihull Moors fell to a 3-0 defeat away to Sporting Khalsa, ending their own six-game unbeaten run in the league and currently lie in seventh.
Midfielder Faith Horner returned to the matchday squad in the victory over Leafield Athletic, playing the full 90 minutes, and is expected to maintain her place in the squad this weekend. Megan Parrett, who has been side-lined with a knee injury over the last few weeks, could also be involved this Sunday, while defender Evie Driscoll-King will also be available.
Beatriz Borque will miss this weekend’s game against Solihull Moors while Cassie Steward is a doubt after picking up an injury against Leafield Athletic last Sunday.
Solihull Moors Leah Seivwright has been in excellent form in 2022, netting nine goals in 10 games and is the club’s top scorer despite only making her first appearance of the season in February.
From the Gaffer
"The last two games have shown two completely different performances. Resilience was important last week to get the three points, while the game against Wem Town showed good attacking quality. Some will say that this weekend is a nothing game because we are both safe, but we are in preparation for a cup final and still want to finish as high as possible.
"Solihull Moors are a good side, they have picked up some excellent victories in the last few months and they have really kicked on in the second half of the season. We are going to have to defend against a top side, which we do every week, but if we do the right things, then I’m confident we can pick up the three points.”
Fans will be able to watch the game at the Idverde training ground. Admission is £3 for adults. To gain access, come to the main gate, where you will be met by a steward and directed where to go.
