PREVIEW: Durham v Coventry United

Durham and Coventry United will be looking to end their respective seasons on a high when they meet at Maiden Castle in the FA Women’s Championship this afternoon.

The hosts will be wanting to cast the disappointment of falling short of promotion to the Barclays FA Women’s Super League aside by picking up a win on the last day of the season.

In doing so, The Wildcats would also be putting a run of four games without a win in all competitions to an end – the last time they won was back in March with a 2-0 victory away at Blackburn Rovers. Lee Sanders’ side experienced defeat in their last game, losing 2-1 away at Charlton Athletic courtesy of goals from Beth Lumsden and Jess King.

Coventry United on the other hand will be much happier to be playing their football in the second tier next season, having avoided relegation at the expense of London Bees. The Red and Greens have won back-to-back fixtures in the FA Women’s Championship, beating Blackburn Rovers 1-0 and Crystal Palace 5-2.

Durham have won all of their previous four fixture against Coventry United. Last time out, The Wildcats emerged victorious in a 4-3 triumph at the Butts Park Arena despite a first half hat-trick from Beth Merrick.

Durham’s FA Women’s Championship fixture against Coventry United kicks-off at 2pm and will be available for fans to stream live on the club’s Facebook page.
