Posh Women back at the Abbey Lawn on Sunday afternoon.
Peterborough United Women return to action in the FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands on Sunday afternoon (2pm) as they welcome Solihull Moors Women to the Abbey Lawn.
After being held to a 1-1 draw against Sheffield FC Women in their last league outing, Dan Lawlor’s side look to return to their winning form this weekend. The sides have already met this season with Posh falling to a 4-0 defeat away from home that put an end to their seven-game winning streak in all competitions.
Posh currently sit in fifth in the league, four points above this weekend’s competitors who are sat in seventh. The Moors have only won once in their last nine league games, but picked up an impressive point against league leaders Stourbridge Women on Thursday evening.
Posh continue to be without midfielders Beatriz Borque and Eden Bailey. Jess Driscoll sustained an injury in the fixture against Sheffield FC Women and will miss the rest of the season. Zaiga Lacite also remains unavailable but has stepped up her recovery this week.
However, this weekend sees defender Elloise Copson return to the squad for the first time since October and Rosie Axten could also be involved after recovering from her injury quicker than expected. New signing Ellie York is set to make her debut this Sunday after joining the club last week.
From The Gaffer
“The weekend break was needed. We were carrying a few knocks, so the rest has been really beneficial over this busy period we’ve had. Obviously, coming to the end of the season, players definitely start to feel it a bit but we’re ready for this weekend.
“Last time out against Solihull, we really didn’t give a good account of ourselves that day. We had a few players missing, which is no excuse, but we really let ourselves down. I thought when we played them they were excellent, so I think we’re going to have to adapt ourselves a little bit.
“We’re very good at home, and we always get a great crowd, so I think as long as we turn up with the right mentality and use all the things we know we’re good at, we’ll give them a really good game I hope.”
Tickets are priced at £4 for adults, £3 for seniors, £2 for under 18s and free for under 12s. Supporters will be able to pay on the gate.
