The Millwall Lionesses will make the long trip up to Doncaster on Saturday at noon for a 2PM kick off the following day at the Keepmoat stadium.
Both teams won their first games of the season with the Doncaster Belles beating the London Bees 4-1 and of course the Lionesses recorded a 3-1 win at home to Watford. The Donny Belles are one of the favourites to finish top come the end of the season after finishing 2nd in the spring series just behind Everton who went up to the WSL 1.
Millwall will be looking to extend the run of 6 wins in a row to 7 on Sunday and amongst this fine stretch of wins was the previous meeting between these two when they met at the end of April this year when the Lionesses came from behind to secure a 2-1 win at home. Charlie Devlin and Billie Brooks were on the scoresheet that day and Brooks already has herself one for the season after her goal against Watford.
Lee Burch was pleased with last weeks result but knows that Doncaster on paper our the toughest threat. Lee added " I was pleased with the performance Sunday. Being our first game of the season it was good to see the pre season work come good and a good performance from the whole squad. We scored good goals and at good times as well and if it hadn't of been for some good goalkeeping we could have scored a couple more. It was great to see a strong support at the ground. As for Sunday we are playing on paper our toughest game away to league favourites Doncaster Belles. Last season we managed to beat them and we will need to put in a stronger performance away from home against a team who won 4-1 last weekend. They have the ability to score from all over the field and we will be working to deal with their threats in training this week."
I also got a few words off of Millwall's current longest serving player Sarah Quantrill who said the side are looking forward to the trip up north "It was nice to finally get the season underway and start off with 3 points. We've got a really good squad this season and there is competition in every position. We know we ill have to play well to keep our place in the team. We are very much looking forward to the Doncaster game and it will be another chance to play on the Keepmoat. Doncaster are a good side and will be a hard team to beat, but we beat them in the spring series so that will give us the confidence and belief that we can do it again."
