Posh Women face The Glassgirls in the first round of Vitality Women’s FA Cup.
Peterborough United Women are set to welcome Stourbridge FC Women to the Abbey Lawn, home of Bourne Town FC, on Sunday afternoon (2pm) in the first round of The Vitality Women’s FA Cup.
Dan Lawlor’s side reached the first round of the competition for the first-time in the club’s history last season, and will be looking to go one step further this weekend as they face the FA Women’s National Division One Midlands league leaders.
The pair faced off earlier in the FAWNL season, with Posh falling to a 4-0 defeat away from home. With the next round on the line and a home crowd behind them, Posh will no doubt be looking to take the victory this weekend.
Posh remain without midfielders Beatriz Borque and Stacey McConville for this weekend’s FA Cup tie. Forward Zaiga Lacite is also expected to spend a lengthy spell out after picking up an injury against Mansfield Town Ladies in their last FA Cup tie alongside defender Elloise Copson.
The Glassgirls forward Niamh Deasy has been on fire so far this season, scoring 16 goals in 12 appearances for the club.

Stourbridge are a top team and they are flying at the top of the league, not losing games, so we are going to have to be at our best to beat them.
“Anyone can beat anyone on their day, so I think we have a really good chance of beating them. It's at home, it's on our pitch, and it's a game that we all believe we can go into with confidence and get a result.”
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, with cash or card payments available.
