Previewing the next round of action in the WSL!

WSL1 Preview

The WSL has the weekend off and instead games are being played in the middle of next week. There is plenty of action to look forward to in both divisions.

Let’s start with Wednesday which see four matches in the WSL 1. The first sees a top half clash as Liverpool Ladies FC entertain Sunderland AFC Ladies. A win for Liverpool would move them closer to Arsenal and maybe overtake them if the results go their way. A win for Sunderland would help close the gap between them and Liverpool in fourth. The second game sees sixth place Birmingham Ladies host top of the table Manchester City Ladies. The visitors will be hoping to maintain or extend their gap at the top of the league. While the hosts will be looking to close the gap to fifth place Sunderland.

The third game sees a bottom half clash between Reading FC Women and Bristol City Women. Both sides have not started the season well and will be looking to get a win to get their season back on track. The final game of the night in the WSL 1 sees Yeovil Town Ladies FC host second-place Chelsea Ladies. Yeovil will be looking to pick up their first points of the season but look unlikely to do against an inform Chelsea side.

Wednesday night also sees two games in WSL 2. The first sees second bottom Aston Villa Ladies FC host top of the table Doncaster Rovers Belles. Villa will be looking to pull further clear of bottom place Watford but its hard to see how they will against an unbeaten Doncaster side. The second game sees second place Millwall Lionesses host eight-placed London Bees. A win for the home side could move them top if Doncaster fails to beat Villa.

If this was not enough there is three games in the WSL 2. The first sees fourth place Durham Women FC host seventh-place Sheffield FC Ladies. A win for the home could see them close the gap to third place Brighton and Hove Albion Women. The next game sees sixth-place Tottenham Hotspur Ladies FC host bottom place Watford Ladies FC. Watford will be looking to get their first win of the season but its hard to see how to against a Tottenham side which are coming into good form. The last of the action on Thursday sees third place Brighton host fifth-place Oxford United Women. A win for the home side will help close the gap between them and Millwall in second. A win for Oxford could see them overtake Durham.

One thing is for sure, it will be an exciting week of action and one that could shake up both tables potentially.
