Millwall Lionesses target a right Royals success at the Madejski Stadium

21 May 2015

Striker Hincks insists 'we have nothing to fear'

Millwall Lionesses head down the M4 this Friday night aiming to extend their proud unbeaten FA WSL 2 run to eight games at the expense of table-topping Reading Ladies (7.45pm).

Dan Mlinar's side have been the model of consistency this season, proving resilient in defence and are now starting to show a real cutting edge up front, as reflected in last weeekend's 3-2 win against high-flying Watford.

On paper the Lionesses' trip to the Madejski Stadium this Friday could prove to be their toughest test yet as they lock horns with an in-form Royals side in confident move following a 3-0 victory against title rivals Doncaster Rovers Belles - a result that moved Reading top.

However striker Ashlee Hincks, Millwall's match-winner against Watford, insists that her team-mates have nothing to fear and that the onus will be on The Royals to find a way through their well-organised ranks.

"The unbeaten run is a credit to everyone," said Ashlee. "We work really hard at being solid at the back and that shows in the games.

"There is no reason we can't keep it going until the end of the season.

"The Reading game is going to be completely different to Watford; they're so strong and we can't afford to make mistakes.

"We need to be strong as a unit and make sure we're all singing off the same hymn sheet and that's something we're going to be working on in training.

"It's going to be really exciting to play at the Madejski, it's always good to play at the men's ground.
