This weekend and next week sees three fixtures in both the WSL and the FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup. Below is who is playing:
The only game this weekend comes in the WSL 2 and sees second bottom Aston Villa Ladies FC take on Durham Women FC. Villa will be looking to bounce back from their heavy 4-0 defeat at home to leaders Doncaster Rovers Belles in their last game. However, Durham will be looking build on their 3-2 win at home to Sheffield Ladies FC. A win for Villa can move them to within two points of seven and eight place and pull them six points clear of bottom place Watford Ladies FC. A win for Durham would see them move above third place Brighton And Hove Albion Women.
Then on Wednesday, there is action in the WSL 1 as bottom place Yeovil Town Ladies FC take on sixth place Reading FC Women. Yeovil will be looking to bounce back from their 2-0 defeat at home to Chelsea in their last game and finally get their first points of the season nine games in. However, Reading will be looking to pick up from where they left off in their last game with a huge 4-0 win over Bristol City Women. A win for Yeovil on Wednesday will see them pick up their first points of the season and close the gap to ninth place Bristol to four points. On the other hand, a win for Reading would them move above Birmingham City Ladies and into fifth place.
Wednesday also sees a huge tie in the FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup as Arsenal Ladies host Manchester City Women at Adams Park, the home of Wycombe Wanders FC. Going into the tie, Manchester City Women would be considered favourites with them being six points ahead of Arsenal in the WSL 1, but as we know with the magic of the cup anything can happen. Arsenal are one of the most successful team in terms of the Women’s Cup competitions with them having won the FA Women’s Cup 13 times and the FA Women’s PL Cup 10 times. They will be looking to keep their hopes of adding hoping a 59th trophy to their cabinet by beating Manchester City.
It looks set to be an exciting weekend and week of action in both the WSL and the FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup and one which should a shake up in both of the WSL tables.
