Record crowd expected for Millwall Lionesses v Aston Villa Ladies

25 September 2015

Come down to The Den and support Dan Mlinar's side

The Millwall Lionesses are expecting a record crowd for their FA Women's Super League match against Aston Villa Ladies, which takes place at The Den on Sunday (2pm).

Villa Ladies are one of the biggest clubs in the women's game and this weekend's encounter is the penultimate home match of the Lionesses' Super League campaign, which began in March and will end in October.

More than half of a 1,000 ticket challenge has been reached, and in addition Junior Lions and parents will be admitted free of charge. This follows the Lionesses' successful appearance at last Sunday's Junior Lions Fun Day, when they joined Millwall's first team squad to sign autographs, pose for photos and even hand out Super League key-rings, headbands and t-shirts.

Sunday's game against Villa promises to be an attractive one and Lionesses manager Dan Mlinar will hope that his side can put in a special, match-winning performance after a three-week break from fixtures.

Young left-winger Rinsola Babjide and England U17 star Grace Fisk may both start, and Mlinar can also call upon left-back Frankie Strugnell and centre-forward Fliss Gibbons, who have both returned from injury.

Lionesses physio Jonjo Hurley has confirmed that they will, however, be without star defender Jordan Butler and key midfielder Lily Agg, who won't play any further part this season. Aston Villa could include England U19 duo Elisha N'Dow and Caitlin Leach in their line-up.

Following on from Sunday's game, the Lionesses return to The Den for their last home match of the season on Sunday 4th October.

That day they host promotion-chasing Reading, who recently sold England striker Fran Kirby to Chelsea for a reported fee of £40,000.
