PREVIEW | Lionesses v Reading

Continental Cup action at Beckenham on Wednesday

Having beaten London Bees in an eight-goal thriller in the Continental Cup last time out, Millwall Lionesses are likely to face a stiff test when Reading visit Beckenham in the same competition on Wednesday evening.

Fliss Gibbons was the star performer in the previous round, hitting a superb hat-trick for the Lionesses in last week's tie, and Lionesses boss Dan Mlinar says his side will approach Wednesday's game with a 'nothing to lose' attitude.

"If we go out there just to stop them then we'll never win," he said.

"We go into it with no fear as we're at home, we're finally scoring goals from open play and if we cut out our individual errors that cost us goals then we're a decent side.

"We've conceded four goals in the last two game that have been avoidable because of individual mistakes and we need to cut them out.

"Reading are an excellent side and they beat us comfortably at the Madejski Stadium but we've got a couple of ideas on how we can impact them as well as how we can stop them."

Kick-off at Beckenham Town FC, Eden Park Avenue, Beckenham BR3 3JL is at 7.45pm and admission prices are £5, with £2 for concessions and U16s free with a paying adult.

This is Millwall Lionesses' last game at Beckenham before they return to The Den on Sunday 23rd August v Doncaster Belles.
