PREVIEW: Beth Hepple on London City Lionesses Clash

Beth Hepple says Durham Women are relishing the chance to play in front of a bumper home crowd when they welcome London City Lionesses on Sunday.

Over 1000 tickets have already been snapped-up for the game against the promotion-chasing visitors, with Maiden Castle set for a huge attendance on Women’s Football Weekend (March 26, 12pm kick-off).

That figure is set to continue growing, with tickets still available HERE.

And while Hepple is well aware of the threat facing Durham, she says the home atmosphere could be a key boost.

Here’s everything the midfielder had to say ahead of the game:

Hepple on the win at Southampton:

“It’s been a few weeks coming and it’s massive for the group in terms of confidence.

“Hopefully it’s the start of a positive end to the season.

“We’ve been striving all year for that complete performance, and against a really tough side away at Southampton it’s nice to see it come together.”

Hepple on the visit of London City Lionesses…

“We’ve got a lot of respect for London City.

“They’re second in the table and everybody can see why – they’ve just beaten Bristol at the weekend too.

“They’re fighting for every point and the title so it’s going to be a tough game.

“But there’s not much pressure on us, so it should be exciting.”

Hepple on our home form…

“To have a good league campaign you need to have a good home record.

“We want to keep that up and we always enjoying play at home with the fans and a good atmosphere.

Hepple on the impact of a bumper home crowd…
