FA WSL Day 1 : 14th of April 2013

Round 1 of the FA WSL 2013.  It is schedulded on the 14th of April

Arsenal v Bristol  P-P

Chelsea v Birmingham

Everton v Doncaster P-P

Lincoln v Liverpool

2 games postponed due to the knock-on effect of the poor weather throughout March and Champions League taking precedence.

Chelsea v Birmingham.
The big question is will the Chelsea team that has changed a lot during the close season will have had enough time to gel ? They have added a lot of foreign talent, 2 English players in Aluko and Holtham and signed up a few of their talented reserves players.  Birmingham will have to bounce back from that FA Cup horrow show against Arsenal. Lawley will be back from international duty. There might be some changes of personnel and tactics on Sunday. Kirsty Linnett should also be available to play unlike on Tuesday in the FA Cup.

Prediction 2-2 draw.

 

Lincoln v Liverpool
Lincoln sees to be the form team. They had a stable close season added Bardsley and lost Hobbs and Staniforth. On paper there is no better defensive triangle than Bardsley, Stoney, Bradley and they will not concede many goals this season. Lincoln still have 3 defenders unavailable Barker, Sargeant ( injured) and Walton (suspended). Liverpool still in the process of gelling and playing together. It should be a tight game and not many goals.

Prediction 1-1 draw
