Arsenal Cup clash

11 July 2014

Lionesses gunning for major scalp

The Lionesses face FA Cup winners Arsenal this Sunday at Beckenham Town in their final FA Continental Cup match of the 2014 season.

Five points from four games means Millwall cannot now qualify for the Continental Cup semi-finals, but Arsenal will need the win to keep hopes of making the semi-finals alive. 

Manager Alberto Kurti is likely to shake up his starting XI with Dionne Lennon suffering a broken leg last weekend during the 2-1 win against Watford.

Midfielder Leeta Rutherford had to step in at centre back as cover after Lennon went off, but Ireland international Sophie Perry hopes her young team-mates will take their chance to impress against illustrious opponents.

“It’s quite good to play different teams,” she said. “We can’t qualify now, but it’s good for the manager Alberto to look at other players and give them the chance to play against an experienced side like Arsenal.

The Gunners didn’t start the season well and have lost quite a few players, so I think they will be out to prove a point. It will be a tough game.”

Arsenal beat fellow WSL 2 side London Bees 7-0 on Thursday night, and asl joint group leaders with Chelsea, a win is a must to make sure they reach the semi-finals of the Continental Cup. 

Adult tickets are priced at £5, while kids can enjoy the fixture for just £2.

Tickets will be available on the day. However, there will be limited availability so why not purchase your tickets online now via the Millwall Lionesses ticketing website.
