Millwall Lionesses host Arsenal at The Den

29 August 2015

Admission tomorrow is free for season ticket holders

Millwall Lionesses return to action at The Den tomorrow when they take on Arsenal Ladies in a Continental Cup clash (2pm).

Lions season ticket holders will be admitted free of charge as Dan Mlinar’s young side look to test themselves and measure their progress against an Arsenal side which is packed full of internationals and has been dominant in domestic women’s football over the past decade.

Mlinar has been developing some players who have come through the legendary Millwall Centre of Excellence, and they will face a tough task to qualify from their group and into the Quarter-Finals.

Millwall would need an almighty goal swing and a string of fortuitous results elsewhere if they are to progress to the last eight of the competition as one of the best third-placed finishers.

Skipper Dionne Lennon's experience at the back will be vital as ever, though it could be particularly important as the Lionesses have lost two key defenders to injury recently. Grace Fisk, however, may be back from England U17s duty.

Further forward, Fliss Gibbons and Rinsola Babajide will be hoping to cause the Arsenal defence a few problems, and in midfield Danielle Carter has recovered from the chest infection which hospitalised her after the match at Everton three weeks ago.

Sunday's match at The Den also provides the Lionesses with the opportunity to bounce back following last week’s disappointing defeat to Doncaster Belles and the midweek loss at Chelsea.

Tickets are available on the day of the game from the Millwall ticket office.

Meanwhile congratulations to Millwall Lionesses' Otesha Charles who has recently returned from representing Guyana in the 2016 Olympic qualifiers.

Otesha scored a hat-trick in the 8-0 win against St Kitts & Nevis, and won the decisive penalty in a 1-1 draw with Cuba which secured Guyana's place in thee CONCACAF Finals this October.
