Lioness Lilli looks to end season on a high

Millwall Lionesses complete their first campaign in WSL 2 on Sunday with a mouth-watering clash against top of the table Sunderland Ladies at The Den.

Sunderland need a win to secure the Super League 2 title but the Lionesses will be going all out to stop them and end their own campaign on a high note.

Combative midfielder Lilli Maple has been one of the stars of Millwall's season and she believes that a good result at the weekend would be the perfect end to the campaign.

"We're a young side and we're still learning. This season has been a really good learning curve for all of us.

"It's been an up-and-down season and perhaps the results haven't always shown what a quality side we are.

"My future is definitely at Millwall. I can't see myself leaving. For next year we want to get the team together more and just put more points on the board.

"We've got to play Sunderland first though, and hopefully we can end the season on a positive note. Every game in the WSL is tough and anybody can beat anybody."

Sunderland's international striker Beth Mead knows her side are in for a tough test on Sunday and has called on Black Cats supporters to come down to The Den and get behind the team.

She said: "I was away with England when we played Millwall earlier in the season but I've watched them play and I know they are going to be a very hard team.

"They will chuck everything at us, they're well-organised and I think away to Millwall is a tough place to go, so it won't be an easy game at all.

"There are a lot of Sunderland supporters down in London and hopefully a lot of fans come down and support us because we need all the support we can get at the moment.
