Donny are the team to beat

27 June 2014

Skipper Lennon looks forward to Sunday clash

High-flying Doncaster Rovers Belles remain the team to beat in the FA Women's Super League 2, according to Millwall Lionesses skipper Dionne Lennon.

That loss was their first of the season and Millwall sit third in the FA WSL2 after picking up two wins and two draws from their opening five matches.

The Lionesses take on the Belles this Sunday at Beckenham Town (2pm) in their first match back from a mid-season break and will look to return to winning ways after going down 2-0 to Aston Villa last time out.

However, the prospect of facing Doncaster is a daunting one, with the Belles sporting a perfect record of five wins from five this season. While Lennon knows her side will face a daunting task against Donny, she believes her team won't need motivating as victory would throw the title race wide open.

"We had a week off at the beginning of the break to recover from the hectic schedule at the start of the season, but after that we got straight back into training," said Dionne

"We lost the last game before the break, which we were disappointed with because it ended a good run and when you lose you want to get straight back into it. That defeat highlighted some issues that we had and needed to sort out, so we've had the chance to work on those.

"Doncaster won't be easy first up – I said before the season they would be the team to beat. But you've got to play the best to get to where you want to be, and I think all the girls are looking forward to it."
