Durham Women FC continue their 2020/21 season with a trip to London Bees – and here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.
The Wildcats will travel to The Hive to face a Bees side whose league position does not reflect the quality within their ranks.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the fixture:
Handed a place in the second tier of the women’s game at the same time as Durham, London Bees have been a regular force in the Championship ever since.
Now under the leadership of Lee Burch, the Bees are looking to bounce back after a tricky start to the season.
Burch’s side are yet to register a league win, but have run the likes of London City Lionesses very close.
And the side have a number of strong players in their ranks. Midfielder Charlie Estcourt is a Welsh international while forward Lauren Pickett is a handful.
At the back, stopper Sarah Quantrill is a reliable option between the sticks while former Wildcat Nicola Gibson could also feature.
WE’VE MET BEFORE
Our last meeting with London Bees came last season, as we ran out 3-1 winners on home soil.
Goals from Sarah Robson, Beth Hepple and Iris Achterhof were enough for victory.
Speaking ahead of the game, Molly Sharpe said: “They’re a really tough team.
“We struggled against them last year, so it’s going to be a really tough test for us.
“We need to have a good week of training and then hopefully get the result we need.”
Stay tuned for a full interview with Molly Sharpe later today.
The match will be played at The Hive, London.
Kick-off is at 12pm on Sunday, October 18.
