Lionesses back in action at Yeovil

25 July 2014

Millwall aim to close gap on top two

Millwall Lionesses return to FA WSL2 action on Sunday when they travel to Yeovil Town looking to close the gap on the table-topping Sunderland and Doncaster Belles.

The Lionesses head to the west country currently sitting fourth in the table, one point behind third-placed Reading and two places and two points ahead of Yeovil.

However a recent spate of injuries has seen influential skipper Dionne Lennon sustain a broken leg, and defender Sophie Perry knows that Millwall face a tough test continuing their promising start to the campaign.

"We drew quite a few games in the first half of the season but we've picked up a few more points in the second half with a good point against Doncaster and win against Watford," said Sophie.

"Dionne is a big loss for us. She is the second player we have lost this season to a broken leg after Emma Whitter. We've got a big squad, mixed with youngsters and experienced players, but those two were doing well in pre-season, Emma scoring the goals and Dionne solid at the back alongside Kylie Davis, so it's a shame they are not with us.

"Yeovil will be a difficult game; their squad unity is strong and they have got better as the season has progressed. Their recent results might not look good but that's just on paper, they will be a tough team to beat and we don't want to travel home without those three points."
