Posh Women travel to ARMCO Arena on Sunday afternoon.
Peterborough United Women will look to continue their fine run of form as they travel to the ARMCO Arena to face Solihull Moors Women on Sunday afternoon (3pm) in the FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands league.
The two teams have yet to play each other this season, but are both currently on the same points in the league table, with Posh having two games in hand on Solihull, so they will certainly be aiming to widen that gap between them this weekend.
Dan Lawlor’s side will be hungry to continue on their fine run of form, looking for their fifth win on the bounce in the league and eighth in all competitions. Solihull have failed to win any games since the end of January, most recently, a 2-1 loss to Sheffield FC last weekend.
Posh will be without midfielder Beatriz Borque and defender Elloise Copson for this weekend’s fixture, as well as forwards Zaiga Lacite and Eden Baily who all remain absent with injuries.
New signing Rosie Axten completed her transfer to the club on Friday and is set to be included in the squad for the game against Solihull Moors.
With a few niggles last weekend, Lawlor had to make some changes to the team and still came away with the three points, highlighting the amount of depth they currently have in their squad.
From The Gaffer
“It’ll be a difficult game against a good team who are around us in the league. They’ve had a couple of up-and-down results recently, but overall a tough game for us. When you’re on a run like we are at the minute, every game becomes tough because you don’t want it to end.
“I knew Solihull would be a good side this year from what I saw of them last year. They’re doing well this season, so obviously we have to worry about what they do, but we also have to concentrate on us. If we turn up giving it 100% like we have done the last few weeks, there a very few sides, if any, that could beat us at this level.”
