Yeovil Town v Aston Villa
You wonder which idiot at the FA scheduled Yeovil to play on Thursday and then 2 days later. Health and safety and competition fairness are the words that spring to mind. Villa of course played on Tuesday and have 2 extra days rest. You certainly wonder if Yeovil will have anything in the tank after their gigantic effort to hold Bristol to a draw on Thursday. Yeovil can still chase the promotion dream should they win as they are currently 3 points behind the leaders Sunderland and Doncaster Belles. Villa are still looking for their first win in the League as they have a point in 3 so far.
Doncaster v Watford
Watford just beat the Bees away and will be on a high and looking to get a result at the League leaders. The Belles lost the midweek promotion chasers battle against Sunderland and will want to make amend for that defeat against the Horents who are still unbeaten in the League and dark horses for the promotion race.
Millwall v Oxford
Millwall will look to bounce back from the heavy midweek defeat v Chelsea, climb up the table and catch up with the league leaders Doncaster and Sunderland. The Lionesses are unbeaten with 5 points in 3 and in the race for promotion if they can win that game. Oxford are pointless in the competition and are in the quick learning curve and will be looking to get something from that tough away games.
Sunderland v London Bees
The League leader are in great from having just beat the other title contenders Doncaster Belles in the conti cup and will look to consolidate their current top of the table status.
The Bees will need to bounce back from their midweek home defeat and it will be interesting to see how their young squad will react to that setback. Bees are currently mid table with 4 points in 3 games.
Reading v Durham
Reading on a high after the win against Arsenal are in need of points after their poor start in the League with 2 defeats against other promotion chasers and 3 points overall out of 9. They have to win to climb up the table and keep in touch with the pacesetters. Durham have a young squad and are learning in every game and will want to get their first point in the competition or more if possible.
