Conti Cup Match day 2 preview

Group 1

Watford v Chelsea

Chelsea are current join leaders in the League and in Group 1 and will try to consolidate their position after a difficult win away to Reading yesterday night.

Millwall v Reading

Another interesting game at the Den, with both teams performing well in their midweek game. Millwall are still unbeaten in all WSL competition, only beaten in the FA Cup by …. Reading. Reading on a high after a good performance v Chelsea, the big question is will they be tired after yesterday’s game.


Group 2

Liverpool v Sunderland

Liverpool are currently hampered by the injuries to nearly all their  senior forwards with only Dowie and Davison currently fit. They managed a draw against Everton and bounced back from their FA Cup defeat and this will be another difficult test against the Division 2 col-leaders. Their previous encounter early in the season ended with a 2-0 Liverpool win.

Durham v Doncaster

Doncaster are currently flying in the League and took Man City’s scalp yesterday, it will be another tough game for the young Durham team.

Man City v Everton

City need a win to get out of the negative spiral, since their first home win in the FA Cup versus Reading they have lost to Liverpool, Bristol, Chelsea and Docaster and are currently bottom in the League and in the Conti Cup and out of the FA Cup. Everton obviously are in a positive mood after their 2 cup ties against Liverpool and will fancy their chances against a struggling team.

Group 3

Notts County v Bristol

Notts are the form team so far with 4 wins and a draw this season. They have conceded 2 goals in 5 and scored 12 goals already. The Vixens have just hammered Oxford scoring 9 and are in a positive mood with 2 wins that followed their 3 consecutive defeats. Certainly the tie of the day in the Continental Cup.

Yeovil v Villa

Yeovil had a creditable defeat against Birmingham while Villa had an heavy loss away to Notts County. The League table suggest a hom,e win but as for all the games played on Sunday, the big question is players’ fitness and tiredness with a 3rd game played in a  week. The teams who did not have rotate their player much might be in trouble towards the end of the second half on Sunday.

Note : 2 games are postponed as Birmingham will host Arsenal in the FA Cup 6th Round at Solihull Moors.
