This weekend sees a break from league duty for the WSL 2 sides and instead sees the sides in SSE Women’s FA Cup. Some of the WSL 2 have some great ties to look forward to and below is just some of the big ties.
Firstly, bottom of the WSL 2 Watford Ladies FC face a tough trip away to Liverpool Ladies FC. The tie will see a struggling Watford side who only have one point to their name come up against Liverpool who have won five of their opening seven games in the WSL 1. With Watford not doing so well in the league it provides a welcome break and give them chance to put a nice cup run together.
Another side who are looking forward to a mouth-watering cup tie are Brighton and Hove Albion Ladies entertain WSL 1 leaders Manchester City Ladies at Culver Road. Manchester City have a few doubts from yesterdays game against Chelsea Ladies. Goalkeeper Karen Bardsley was stretched off after falling on her head to claim a ball and captain Steph Houghton also came off in the first half with an injury.
Another struggling WSL 2 sides who have a great tie on their hands is London Bees who host Chelsea Ladies at The Hive. The tie will provide a London derby and will give London Bees a welcome break from league action which like Watford will give them the chance to chance to cause a shock in the cup and try and put together a nice cup run.
There is also a couple of all WSL 2 tie. The first of these sees mid table Tottenham Hotspur Ladies FC host top of the table Doncaster Rovers Belles. Doncaster have undefeated in their first eight games so far in the WSL 2, winning six and drawing two. Tottenham have been struggling in the league and will be hoping to put a cup run together in the aim of turning round their season.
The other all WSL 2 tie sees third-placed Durham Women FC entertain sixth-placed Sheffield FC. Durham will be looking to get back to winning ways after a 3-2 last weekend to second-placed Milwall Lionesses. Sheffield will be hoping to put together a nice cup run with them floating around mid-table and like Tottenham will be hoping a cup run will help to turn their season around.
One thing is for sure the WSL 2 sides will be looking to give a good account of themselves and hopefully cause a few shocks in the process.
