Preview | Millwall Lionesses v Brighton and Hove Albion

A look ahead to St Paul's encounter...

4 October 2017

Millwall Lionesses take on Brighton and Hove Albion at St Paul's Sports Ground on Sunday 8th October in WSL2 (kick-off 2pm).

After an unbeaten start - consisting of a victory over Watford Ladies and a 2-2 draw with Doncaster Rovers Belles - The Lionesses take on The Seagulls looking to keep up with the early pacesetters.

Lee Burch's side looked to be heading for defeat at the Keepmoat Stadium last time out, but after going 2-0 down, goals from Charlie Devlin and Ashlee Hincks secured a point.

"I'm really happy," Hincks said after the final whistle. "It's always difficult coming here. I don't think we deserved to be 2-0 down, but to come back and get a point shows great resilience.

She added: "We created so many chances and I just knew that we would eventually take one. Getting the first just before half-time was key, because we carried that momentum into the second-half and Doncaster went the opposite way."

Brighton, managed by England legend Hope Powell, currently possess a 100% record in WSL2, but The Lionesses will head into the game looking to keep their own unbeaten record intact.

The last meeting between the two sides ended goalless in last year's Spring Series, despite The Lionesses having the better of the game, mustering 21 attempts on goal.

Ticket prices are £5 adults and £2 over 60s and under 16s.
