Match Preview: Cardiff v Pompey Women

Blues back on the road

29 February 2024

Pompey Women are back on the road this Sunday, when they take on Cardiff in the National League (2pm kick-off).

Jay Sadler's side were last in league action against Chatham at Westleigh Park a fortnight earlier.

Ava Rowbotham and Sophie Quirk both bagged a brace that afternoon, while Leeta Rutherford, Emma Jones and Tierney Scott also found the target in a resounding 7-0 victory.

The Blues followed that up with a dramatic defeat to Northern Division leaders Newcastle at St James' Park in the semi-finals of the League Cup.

Emma Jones had levelled for the visitors, cancelling out Charlotte Potts' opener after latching onto a threaded Rowbotham pass.

But there was to be late heartbreak, asGeorgia Gibson netted a last-gasp winner for the Magpies in front of 22,307 supporters.

Cardiff currently sit seventh in the National League standings, collecting 19 points from 15 games.

They have won five of their fixtures so far, including a recent 2-1 success against Cheltenham in Wales.

Pompey hit nine goals without reply when the Dragons made the trip south for the reverse contest back in September.

Dani Lane hit a hat-trick that day, with Jones and Quirk each bagging a brace, while Emily Pitman and Annie Rolf also got on the scoresheet.

The game takes place at Newport Stadium (NP19 4PT). Tickets are priced £5 for adults, while under-16s can enter for for free. They can be purchased at the turnstiles on the day.

Supporters at home can keep up to date with the action via the club's social media accounts.

There will be full coverage of the day and key match updates on Twitter (X), while photos and key information will be posted on Facebook and Instagram.

A match report will be posted on the website shortly after the final whistle, while there will be post-match reaction posted on Pompey Women's social channels.

Highlights of the contest will be available to watch the following day.
