Posh Women U23s

Posh Women U23s are set to face Doncaster Rovers Belles Development 

Peterborough United Women U23s will host Doncaster Rovers Belles Development on Sunday afternoon (3pm) at the idverde Training Ground in their latest fixture in the FA Women’s National League Reserve Midlands Division.

Posh Women U23s’s five-game winning streak in all competitions came to an end last weekend as they lost 2-0 against league leaders Derby County Development. They remain in second place on 13 points, with Lincoln City and Wolverhampton Wanderers having games in hand over Posh. 

Doncaster Rovers Belles Development currently sit bottom of the table, having lost their opening three league games. The Belles have conceded 18 goals in that time whilst netting six goals.

Michael Allsebrook confirmed he will be giving more minutes to players who haven’t appeared much this season. Phoebe Richards-Reeves is sidelined as she follows concussion protocols whilst both Mia Karagholi and Bronte Cooper work their way back from injuries. 

Ella-Mai Bale will be hoping to continue her fine form in front of goal recently, scoring eight goals in seven appearances this term.

The Posh Women U23s will have to watch out for current Doncaster Rovers Belles Development forward Ella Mortimer, who has scored two goals in two appearances this season.

From The Gaffer

Allsebrook said: “We approach every game with the right attitude no matter who the opponent is. We are confident we are prepared enough to face Doncaster on Sunday. Results aren’t always everything, we were really happy with the performance at Derby on Sunday and were pleased with what we took away from it. It’s a case of making sure we do the right things on the pitch, making the right decisions, and if we do those things, the result will naturally come. Sunday is a chance to get minutes into the tank for some players and look at players who haven’t played much yet."
