Bristol v Lincoln preview

The second semi-final is played at Ashton Gate this afternoon between Bristol Academy and Lincoln Ladies ( Notts County Ladies for future reference from 2014).

It will be a good opposition of style between an attacking team that likes to create and a team that like to defend well and have a physical side.

Both side have fast and creative forwards and will use that pace to go behind the opposition defence. Lincoln are really good at winning the ball early and create opportunities from those balls with Clarke, Cantrell and Hamilton.

Bristol will use the Spanish connection ( Natalia, Del Rio) to create opening and hope their midfield pairing James and former Ladyimps player Staniforth will be strong enough against Lincoln midfield pressure.

We will see also see 2 England goalies in action with current number 1 Bardsley and number 3 Chamberlain.
Sophie Bradley was missing last week and might be available so the starting 11 could look like this today

Chamberlain, Dykes Rose Matthews Yorston, James Staniforth, Harding Del Rio Heatherson or Watts, Natalia

Bardsley, Walton Bradley or Turner Stoney Ma Harris, Allen Me Harris Roberts, Clarke Cantrell Hamilton
