Posh Women return to FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands action.
Peterborough United Women welcome Sporting Khalsa to the Abbey Lawn on Sunday afternoon (2pm) as they return to league action hoping to keep up the winning form they have seen since returning from the festive period.
Losing the opening game of the season 2-0 to Sporting Khalsa, Lawlor’s side have since defeated their opponents in the Vitality Women’s FA Cup winning 2-1.
Both sides look to be in scoring form at the moment, with Khalsa’s last time out in the league netting five past Lincoln City in a 5-1 victory, and Posh scoring eight in a dominant 8-0 victory against Long Eaton United.
Posh will be without midfielder Beatriz Borque, defender Elloise Copson and forward Zaiga Lacite for this weekend’s fixture, but are positive with the recently injured players slowly making their way back into the starting XI.
In last weekend’s, County Cup game against AFC Rushden & Diamonds Girls, two members from Posh’s ETC (Emerging Talent Centre) made their debuts for the first time, indicating the positive direction the club’s younger talents have for the future.
From The Gaffer
“It will definitely be a tough game. Every time we play Khalsa they give us a proper game. They’re not where they are in the league for no reason - they’re a well-drilled, well-organised team who definitely have the threats to hurt us, but where we’re at at the moment, I’m really confident.
“The crowds that are turning up for us, and the way we’re playing at home at the minute is something that’s going really well, and it’s something we have to just keep building on. Everything is looking really positive at the minute. The squad is good, the results are good, everything is good, and we’re moving in the right direction.”
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.
Updates from the match against Sporting Khalsa will also be live on our Twitter account @theposhwomen from 12:45pm, followed by reaction and report after the full-time whistle.
