Posh Women return to Abbey Lawn on Sunday afternoon.
Peterborough United Women will look to return to winning ways this weekend as they welcome Wem Town Ladies to the Abbey Lawn on Sunday afternoon (2pm) in the FA Women’s National League (FAWNL) Division One Midlands league.
The two sides have already met twice this season, once in the league where Posh secured a 4-1 victory, and once in FAWNL Plate where Dan Lawlor’s side achieved a comfortable 5-0 win. Wem currently sit in 10th in the league table, having played three games more than Posh.
Lawlor’s side will be looking to bounce back after last weekend’s 4-0 defeat to Solihull Moors, their first league defeat in six games. Wem, however, will be looking to keep up with their recent run of form, currently unbeaten in their last three league games.
With temperatures expected to be freezing throughout Friday evening and Saturday morning, any updates on a pitch inspection will be made available on the club’s social media accounts.
Posh will be without midfielder Beatriz Borque and defender Elloise Copson for this weekend’s fixture, as well as forwards Zaiga Lacite and Eden Bailey who all remain absent with injuries.
However, in positive news for Posh, Copson is slowly making her way back to training while midfielder Jess Driscoll is expected to return to the squad for this Sunday’s game after missing the defeat to Solihull Moors.
Wem’s Kimberley Bebbington will no doubt be looking to cause trouble to the Posh defence, having netted 14 goals in 20 appearances this season.
From The Gaffer
“We’ve addressed last weekend’s performance at training this week, making sure that we brush it aside and try to forget about a performance like that. I always said that it would take a good team to stop our run of form, and that’s exactly what happened on Sunday - Solihull definitely deserved the win.
“How we bounce back from that will be interesting for me. It’s up to myself and the staff to ensure they’re up for it, ready to go, and putting in high-level performances to get us back to where we were before. Like I’ve said before, no game in this league is easy, and we just have to make sure we go out there with high intensity to get those three points.”
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.
