Southampton FC Women face a huge game on Sunday in their chase for the league title, as they visit fellow challengers AFC Bournemouth CST.

The match, which takes place at Verwood Town Football Club and kicks off at 2pm BST, sees first play second in the Southern Region Women's Football League Premier Division.

It is Bournemouth who currently top the table, but they are only three points ahead of Saints having played two games more.

That means victory for Marieanne Spacey-Cale's side, who have won all 12 of their league fixtures so far this season, would put them firmly in the driving seat ahead of their final five matches of the campaign.

The sides last met in December, in a game switched to Staplewood Campus from AFC Totton due to weather conditions, with a hat-trick from top scorer Chloe Newton powering Saints to a 3-1 victory.

Fans wishing to watch the game should head to Verwood Town FC, Potterne Park, Verwood, BH21 6RS, with parking available on site.
