PREVIEW: Brighton & Hove Albion v Bristol City

Bristol City face their biggest game of the season as they travel to The People’s Pension Stadium to take on Brighton & Hove Albion this afternoon.

Matt Beard’s side have battled heroically over the course of the last three months to give themselves a chance of Barclays FA Women’s Super League survival and they must now beat The Seagulls this afternoon and hope that either Aston Villa or Birmingham City lose on what promises to be a frantic final day.

Brighton & Hove Albion go into the match on the back of their best top flight season so far. Hope Powell’s side could yet finish the campaign in the top half of the table should they better Reading’s result against title-hopefuls Chelsea. Albion are not thought to be carrying any fresh injuries while manager Powell has confirmed that forward Katie Robinson will play no part this afternoon despite returning to the bench last weekend.

Bristol City arrive in Crawley unbeaten in their last four league matches on the road, although they are yet to win away from home under the guidance of stand-in boss Beard. The Robins have no new injuries following their 1-0 home defeat to Manchester United last weekend but defender Jas Matthews and midfielder Megan Wynne remain sidelined.

The Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture between Brighton & Hove Albion and Bristol City is scheduled to kick-off at 2.30pm and will be available for fans to stream live on the FA Player.
