Posh Women welcome Leek Town Ladies to the Abbey Lawn.
Peterborough United Women face Leek Town Ladies in the FA Women’s National League on Sunday afternoon (2pm) at the Abbey Lawn as Dan Lawlor’s side look to continue their excellent run of form.
Posh Women made it six wins on the bounce in all competitions, including three consecutive victories in the league, on Thursday night after a 2-1 victory over Lincoln City Women. Leek will no doubt cause a threat to Posh, highlighting their goalscoring ability recently as they netted six past Long Eaton United Women in their last time out in the league.
The two sides have yet to face each other this season. Leek are currently sat in ninth, four points behind Posh, having played four more games than Lawlor’s side.
Posh will continue to be without midfielder Beatriz Borque and defender Elloise Copson for this weekend’s fixture, as well as forwards Zaiga Lacite and Eden Bailey who remain absent with injuries.
Lawlor’s side have been plagued with injuries this season, but is feeling positive with the number of players making their way back to full fitness and into the matchday squads.
From The Gaffer
“It’s a quick turnover period for this one. Two days rest and then another game, so something we’re not that used to.
“The opposition isn’t in a great position, so that means they’re going to come out fighting and really give us a tough game. No game at this level is an easy game, but we’re going into this one on the back of another three points, so I can't be anything but confident."
