Our women’s team travel to Leicester City Ladies FC for the first qualifying round of The Vitality Women’s FA Cup today.
Confidence is high after a superb start to the season, winning the first two games, including taking an East Midlands Women’s Premier League scalp in the preliminary round of the competition. So Town will be looking to continue in that rich vein of form with today’s challenge of toppling yet another Premier League opponent.
Missing from the squad this week are forwards Ellie Wilson, Lindsay Crofton and Laura Robinson. Chloe Wilkinson is also unavailable as she serves the last of her three-game suspension following a red card last season.
The only change to the starting line-up will see Alisha Dejonge making her first start of the season, following her goal last week, coming off the bench to score in Town’s 6-1 victory against Sherwood FC Women.
