Liverpool will be hoping for a bumper crowd when their battle against relegation in the FA Women’s Super League continues against West Ham United at Prenton Park this afternoon.
While The Reds’ men’s side are on the verge of their first English Premier League title success, the women’s team have suffered a disastrous campaign so far with just one point collected from an available 24.
With Liverpool having recently recorded a record crowd of 23,500 for their women’s Merseyside derby against Everton at Anfield, the club are offering free admission for the first 3,000 fans through the gate at Prenton Park this afternoon upon production of a match ticket from the Everton game.
Vicky Jepson’s side have lost their last four league fixtures while they are two points adrift of safety, although their goal difference is considerably better than 11th-placed club Bristol City. It is hoped that a portion of those 23,500 fans from Anfield just three weeks ago will return this afternoon and help cheer The Reds to a huge three points against The Hammers.
Despite West Ham United’s 3-2 victory over Manchester United at Rush Green last weekend, this afternoon might be a good time to face the East Londoners. Matt Beard’s side have conceded 13 goals in just four league games. The Hammers have the second-worst goal difference in the division behind Bristol City, something which a goal-shy Liverpool side, who have netted just once all season, will hope to take advantage of.
The match is scheduled to kick-off at 2pm with cash turnstiles in operation for those fans who did not attend the recent Merseyside derby fixture.
