London Bees vs Saints
National League Southern Premier
Wednesday 23rd March, 7.45pm GMT
After successive draws Saints returned to winning ways in style on Sunday, seeing off Cardiff City 4-0 away from home.
Lucia Kendall scored the first on 38 minutes, before adding a second early into the second half.
A third for Kendall and Saints came on 72 minutes before Ella Pusey rounded off the scoring with two minutes remaining.
London Bees were last in action on 13th March, facing a tricky home test against Portsmouth who came away from the Hive with a 4-0 victory.
A win for Saints would see them close the gap on Oxford United in second to three points, whilst victory for London Bees sees them leapfrog Crawley Wasps into sixth.
The two sides last met at Snows Stadium back in late September, in front of a 201 strong crowd.
It was a successful day to say the least for Marieanne Spacey-Cale’s side; Sophia Pharoah opening the scoring on 17 minutes, before Leeta Rutherford added a second before the break.
Kendall and Pusey both notched during the second half, with Caitlin Morris completing the scoring three minutes from time.

“When it comes to the game on Wednesday against London Bees we’ve got to prepare and recover well.
“It’s relentless in the coming weeks. Recovery and use of the squad will be vitally important.
“What’s great about this squad is that we can utilise everyone for the games that we’ve got coming up.”
