Match Preview: Gillingham v Pompey Women

Blues on the road this weekend

6 April 2019

Pompey Women

Pompey Women return to National League action as they travel to the Sports Ground in Chatham to face Gillingham on Sunday (2pm kick-off).

The fixture comes just four days after the Blues retained the Hampshire Cup with a convincing 3-1 victory over Southampton at AFC Totton.

Danielle Rowe, Jade Bradley and Shannon Albuery were on all target in the first half to secure the trophy for a 15th times.

Now Jay Sadler’s side turn their attention back to the league, as they visit to Kent to take on a team sitting one place – but seven points – below them in ninth spot.

It finished 4-1 to Pompey in the reverse fixture all the way back in August, although they fell behind before Albuery, Katie James, Bradley and Daisy McLachlan struck.

The Gills have also enjoyed county cup success recently, claiming a 1-0 win over their own development side to secure the silverware at Priestfield.

But they were on the wrong side of a 2-0 scoreline last time out, falling to a league defeat against Cardiff in the Welsh capital.

Sadler will welcome back Hannah Haughton, Caitlin Collighan and Jade Widdows after the trio were cup-tied against Southampton.

And you can see if the Blues can record a fourth successive victory when they visit the Sports Ground (ME4 6LR).

Tickets are priced £5 for adults and £1 for under-16s. They can be purchased at the ground on the day of the game.
