Match Preview: Pompey Women v Gillingham

Blues are back in action at Westleigh Park

25 October 2020

Pompey Women take on Gillingham in their third consecutive home game at Westleigh Park this afternoon (2pm kick-off).

The fixture comes off the back of the Blues’ 3-0 victory over National League South's bottom club Hounslow last Sunday.

Becki Bath scored a brace to continue her prolific early season form, while Ava Rowbotham struck her first goal in a Blues shirt.

This is the first time Pompey have faced off with the Kent outfit since last season’s clash in the League Cup.

They took the lead through Laura Ingram on that occasion, but a couple of quickfire goals soon found them trailing.

A 25-yard wonder strike from Jade Widdows returned the contest to level terms and ensured it would enter extra-time.

With a penalty shoot-out looming at the PMC Stadium, Charmaine True sealed Pompey's progress by tapping home following an almighty scramble in the box.

The Gills have won two of their six league games so far this term, beating Keynsham in their last outing to add to an earlier victory over Hounslow.

Their other four fixtures have all ended in defeat, including a 5-0 rout at MK Dons earlier this month.

Blues boss Jay Sadler will be without Jade Widdows, who has undergone surgery on an ankle problem.

Tickets are available to buy at the Westleigh Park turnstiles this afternoon, with the option of contactless or cash payments.

Supporters are advised to download the NHS track and trace app in advance to save time when entering the ground.

There will be discounted entry to Pompey flexi-season ticket holders and Havant & Waterlooville season ticket holders.
