Match Preview: Cheltenham v Pompey Women

Blues back on the road

7 April 2023

Pompey Women return to action on Sunday, when they visit Cheltenham in the National League (2pm kick-off).

The clash on Easter Sunday comes on the back of a dramatic trip to Billericay, where the Blues secured a 4-3 victory.

The Essex hosts took an early lead, but Jay Sadler’s side quickly equalised through Ella Humphrey, who finished Sophie Quirk’s cross with the outside of her boot.

Annie Rolf’s brace gave the Blues a commanding lead, before Lucy Jones’ penalty and Jess King free-kick either side of the break ensured the hosts levelled the National League contest.

And it looked as though the spoils would be shared until Jazz Younger rose above all in the box to power a header home in the dying seconds to secure all three points.

It has not been long since Pompey last faced Cheltenham, with Ali Hall and Sophie Quirk on target in a 2-0 success at Westleigh Park in February.

Hall found the net with an audacious lifted finish, before Quirk cut in from the left to angle the ball into the top corner.

The game takes place at the Corinium Stadium (GL7 1HS), with tickets available to buy at the turnstiles.
