With only a 2 day break the Lionesses travel to Spurs on what will be a very cold Wednesday night fixture. The Lionesses come back from Watford on Sunday in very good spirit after putting 4 past them and playing some very good football.
This Tottenham game slots in between the 3 away games in 8 days. After the Lionesses saw off Watford on Sunday it will be likely that Lee Burch will be expecting more of the same from his side when the game gets underway at 7:30.
Sunday saw some changes to the side and it is possible that there will be a few rotations within the squad for Wednesday's game to ensure the players have fresh legs. The Lionesses know that a win is vital on Wednesday and need to ensure that they bring 3 points back to South London.
A chance to close the gap on the leaders Doncaster Belles with a win as they don't play till Wednesday the 9th. A win would see the Lionesses go level on points with Donny and really put pressure on the leaders.
Spurs proved tough opposition for the majority of the game last time before eventually being carved open by some good play by the Lionesses as the Lionesses picked up another 3 points in the league. The test on Wednesday will be how quickly can the Lionesses start and get right underneath this Tottenham side.
LAST TIME OUT
Watford 0 Millwall Lionesses 4 29/04/18
An almost 5 start performance as Millwall put 4 past bottom of the league Watford. After Sunday's game the week before saw the Lionesses lose their first league game in over a year, The Lionesses bounced back in style and started in quick fashion as Ashlee Hincks grabbed a brace inside the first 10 minutes of the game. Chances were at a premium as the Lionesses looked to put the game to bed before half time. Goals from Dean and Gaylor made it 4 in the second half as Millwall returned to winning ways.
Tottenham 6 Durham 3 29/04/18
What a game this was! It was the game of the weekend for sure. Spurs just like Millwall started brightly and found themselves in a 3 goal lead inside the first 10 minutes of the game. The spurs back line rested too much and Durham grew into the game. Spurs will be disappointed they slipped up as Durham made it 3-3 and looked as if they would go on to win this game. Despite that Spurs then picked up the tempo again as they went and got another 3 as Spurs came out on top in this 9 goal thriller.
LAST TIME WE MET
Millwall Lionesses 4 Tottenham 1 14/01/18
The Lionesses put 4 past Spurs as they turned a tough hour into a very convincing victory. Amber Gaylor opened the scoring with a perfectly weighted header too good for the keeper to stop. However the visitors would reply in the second half through Sarah Wiltshire. Former Arsenal youngster Charlie Devlin stole the show with two very well taken goals to see off Spurs before Megan Wynne wrapped the game up with the last kick of the game.
VIEW FROM THE OPPOSITION
Spurs will be happy with a mid table finish it would seem come the end of the season and why wouldn't they? First ever season in the WSL and they have competed well against some very experienced sides.
While some of their defending has been questionable at times with the amount of goals they have leaked in a few games, it will have been a very bright season for the North London side and something that they will be looking to build on into next season.
The Lionesses look to make it 6 points from a possible 6 on Wednesday night and after Sunday's win they should be in the right frame of mind to do so.
