PREVIEW: London City Lionesses v Durham

Durham will be looking to continue their fantastic campaign when they head to Princes Park to take on London City Lionesses, in a rearranged fixture, in the FA Women’s Championship on Sunday.

The game was originally due to be played on the 7 February but was postponed hours before kick-off due to ‘unplayable weather conditions’.

Lee Sanders’ side are currently level on points with league leaders Leicester City and will be looking to strengthen their push for promotion with a win against Melissa Phillips’ team.

London City Lionesses are also in good form, winning their last three in the league against Blackburn Rovers, Charlton Athletic and Lewes respectively. They promise to be tough challengers for latest opponents Durham. Goalkeeper Shae Yanez will be a key player for The Pride as she has been excellent in recent weeks, keeping five clean sheets in her last six games.

Durham on the other hand will be looking for attacking inspiration from their top scorer Beth Hepple as they continue to pile pressure on Leicester City. They have played a game more than The Foxes but they do have Jonathan Morgan’s side still to play on home soil next month.

Both London City Lionesses and Durham were in good form heading into the international break and they will be hoping to keep up their impressive recent records going into this one.

The match kicks-off at midday on Sunday with highlights to be made available on the FA Player.
