Match Preview: Pompey Women v AFC Bournemouth

Blues in FA Cup action at Westleigh Park

27 November 2021

Pompey Women return to Westleigh Park this afternoon as they take on AFC Bournemouth in the second round of the FA Cup (2pm kick-off).

The Blues were also on home soil in the last stage of the competition, when they eased to a 13-0 victory over Dorking Wanderers.

Shannon Albuery smashed four goals in the rout, while there were also hat-tricks for Cherelle Khassal and Tamsin de Bunsen.

Hayley Bridge, Ava Rowbotham and Sammy Quayle chipped in as well to secure comfortable progress for Pompey.

Now they face the Cherries for the first time since a pre-season friendly in July, with Jay Sadler's side winning that contest 8-0.

Albuey also netted four times on that occasion against the Blues' south coast neighbours, with the other goals scored by Dani Lane, Bridge, Quayle and Becki Bath.

The latter player went on to sign for Bournemouth and is one of six former Pompey players currently in their squad.

Ex-skipper Jade Bradley recently made the move to Dorset, while there will also be reunions with Charmaine True, Katie James, Molly Clark and Rebecca Barron.

The visitors currently compete one level below the Blues in National League South West Division One and currently sit in sixth position, although they have yet to taste defeat in their six fixtures.

They reached this round of the FA Cup courtesy of a 2-1 victory at Bournemouth Sports in round one.
