Previewing the weekend’s action in the WSL 2

WSL2 Preview

The WSL 2 is back after a week’s break for cup action and below is what fans can look forward to.

This weekend’s fixtures are kicked off on Sunday lunchtime with an exciting top of the table clash between Doncaster Rovers Belles and Durham Women FC. The fixture is massive for both teams as Doncaster will be looking to win in order to stay top. Whereas, Durham will want to grab all three points in order to close the six-point gap between them and second place Millwall Lionesses.

Then after that we have all the two a clock kick-offs. The first sees second bottom Aston Villas ladies host second-place Millwall at Tamworth FC. Villa will be looking to build on their cup win last weekend with another three points this weekend in order to close the gap to eighth place Tottenham Hotspur Ladies FC.

This is followed by, fourth place Brighton and Hove Albion Women who host seventh-place London Bees at Culver Road. Albion women will be looking to get the three points and close the six-point gap between them and Millwall. A win for The Bees, however, could see them move up to fifth place if other results this weekend go their way.

Another of the two a clock kick-off sees a bottom half clash between Tottenham and Oxford Women FC. Tottenham will be looking for a win to pull them away from the bottom two and help turn down their poor start the league campaign. A win for Oxford could be decisive as if other results go their way they could leapfrog Brighton and Durham and move up to third place.

The final game of the weekend sees bottom of the league Watford Ladies FC entertain Sheffield FC Ladies at Kings Langley FC. A win could see for Watford is a must as if Villa fail to beat Millwall and Watford win it could see them move onto level points with Villa. However, if results don’t go their way and Villa beat Millwall and they do lose to Sheffield it could see the gap to second bottom Villa increase to six points. A win for Sheffield could see them move into fifth place and leapfrog Oxford if they fail to pick up any points.

One thing is for sure, it looks to be a decisive weekend in the WSL 2 which could see the table look completely different come Sunday evening.
