Match Preview: Pompey Women v Cardiff

Blues return to league action

16 January 2020

Pompey Women

Pompey Women return to National League action when they take on Cardiff at the PMC Stadium on Sunday (2pm kick-off).

Jay Sadler’s side are aiming to bounce back from their narrow FA Cup defeat to Ipswich a fortnight ago.

It is the first time they have been playing for points since winning away to tomorrow’s opponents towards the end of November.

Goals from Tamsin de Bunsen and Eilidh Currie ensured the Blues battled from behind to triumph 2-1 in the Welsh capital.

The Blues have not played a league fixture on home since all the way back in September, when they hosted Oxford.

Mia Adaway’s first senior goal was not enough on a day to forget for Pompey, as the visitors eased to a 4-1 victory.

Cardiff are currently sitting third in the table – six points behind league leaders Watford and Crawley Wasps.

They were knocked out of the FA Cup by Southampton earlier in the month, but followed that up by thrashing Gillingham 5-0 last weekend.

Tamsin de Bunsen is sidelined with a hamstring injury, but it the only Blues player unavailable for selection.

Jade Widdows has recovered from knee surgery last month, while Becki Bath and Rosie McDonnell will also be hoping to return to the side.

Tickets can be bought on the gate at the PMC Stadium (PO3 5LY), priced £5 for adults and £2 for concessions (U18/63+).
