PREVIEW: Liverpool v Blackburn Rovers

Liverpool will be hoping to capitalise on the sides directly above and below them facing each other when they welcome Blackburn Rovers to Prenton Park this evening.

Second-placed Durham take on fourth-placed Sheffield United at Maiden Castle, meaning that Liverpool can take advantage and either gain on second or move clear of fourth.

The Reds have built up a run of four games without defeat under caretaker manager Amber Whiteley, a sequence which started following January’s 2-1 home defeat to Leicester City.

Liverpool midfielder Ceri Holland will be hoping to continue her run of form which led to her winning the FA Women’s Championship’s Player of the Month award for February. The player is certainly one to watch after scoring three goals in her last four games.

Blackburn Rovers travel to Prenton Park without a victory since November. Manager Gemma Donnelly is wanting her side to rise to the challenge on Merseyside and cause an upset, something that she believes Rovers are more than capable of.

Rovers boss Donnelly could opt to make changes to her side following a 3-0 defeat to Lewes last time out. Loanee Maria Edwards is set to be available once again and could be recalled but Annabel Blanchard, Milly Robertson and Lauren Thomas all remain sidelined.

The FA Women’s Championship fixture between Liverpool and Blackburn Rovers kicks-off at 6.30pm and will be broadcast live on the FA Player.
