Preview | Millwall Lionesses v Coventry United Ladies

Lionesses look to continue unbeaten run...

2 February 2018

Millwall Lionesses take on Coventry United Ladies this Sunday in the Women's FA Cup at St Paul's Sports Ground (kick-off 3pm).

Lee Burch's side are on an incredible unbeaten run, stretching back one year, and will look to extend that sequence to 16 games as they welcome United to the home of Fisher FC.

Most recently, Millwall beat third placed Durham Women, as Leigh Nicol, Billie Brooks and Ashlee Hincks were on target in a 3-2 win.

Coventry also won their last game as they defeated Cambridge United Women 5-0 in the Women's Premier League Cup.

This will be Millwall's first foray into the FA Cup this season, whilst Coventry have reached this stage by beating The Lionesses' local rivals West Ham United and Crystal Palace.

"We will prepare the same as any other game for the weekend," said Lionesses manager Butch. "I'm expecting the squad to continue to perform and we want a good FA Cup run to go alongside our League form. 

"I've been really pleased with the last two games - they've been two squad performances, with everyone playing their part. That will continue in the FA Cup."

Turnstiles at St Paul's will open one hour before kick-off and tickets can be bought on the day, at the gate or on the Lionesses website - click here. Tickets are priced at £5 adults and £2 concessions (over 60s and under 16s.)

Matchday programmes can also be purchased for £2, whilst food and drink will be available inside the clubhouse.

Fisher FC's St Paul's Sport's Ground is located on Salter Road, SE16 5EF. The closest stations are Rotherhithe (Overground) and Canada Water (Jubilee Line).
