Match Preview: Chichester & Selsey v Pompey Women

Blues look to back up Keynsham win

30 September 2020

Pompey Women take on Chichester & Selsey in a floodlit fixture at Littlehampton FC this evening (7.45pm kick-off).

Jay Sadler’s side head into the encounter with four points on the board, after drawing with Yeovil on the opening day and then beating Keynsham on Sunday.

Goals from Jade Widdows and Rosie McDonnell saw the Blues pick up their first win of the season.

Their opponents tonight faced Yeovil on home soil at the weekend and conceded in the closing stages to suffer a 1-0 defeat.

Pompey's most recent clash with Chichester came last October, with Charmaine True and Becki Bath, along with Widdows and McDonnell, all found the target in a 4-1 victory.

Bath's was a wonder goal and ensured that the team recorded back-to-back league successes for the first time that term.

The home meeting was cancelled because of Covid-19, meaning that the Blues have not played host since March 2019.

Back then, Katie James and Jade Bradley free-kicks, along with Rachel Panting's late strike, secured the points at the PMC Stadium

Down at the other end of the pitch, Hannah Haughton saved two penalties in quick succession to keep Chichester at bay.

Blues boss Jay Salder will once again be without True tonight, as the forward continues to recover from a muscle injury.
