Match Preview: Loughborough v Pompey Women

Blues on the road in National League South

11 November 2018

Pompey Women

Setting off on their travels once more, Pompey Women take on Loughborough this afternoon after a month without a league fixture.

On the back of a confidence-boosting 11-0 friendly victory at Brentford last weekend, the Blues are looking for a three-point haul when they visit the Loughborough University Stadium.

The Foxes sit three places higher in the National League South table, having won the Division One title last term.

Four victories from their opening nine fixtures sees them sitting fourth in the standings, with four more points than Pompey.

Rachel Panting is in prolific form after netting four goals in that Brentford win, while Esther Anu also bagged a hat-trick.

But the Blues will be expecting a more challenging encounter against a Loughborough outfit that enjoyed a comprehensive 4-0 triumph over Plymouth on the same day.

Pompey have had mixed fortunes on the road this season, seeing off C&K Basildon and MK Dons, but losing to table-topping Chichester.

Boss Jay Sadler once again has a fully-fit squad to choose from, having given everyone a run-out at Brentford.

And you can see if his side return to league form when they face Loughborough later today (2pm kick-off).
