Preview: Exeter City vs Saints

By SFC Media Sat 07 Dec Womens Team

Southampton FC Women return to league action on Sunday, with a visit to Exeter City.

Following successive cup heroics, Marieanne Spacey-Cale's side return to matters in the National League, looking to continue their unbeaten record in the division. 

Saints' two week break from league action could not have been more successful, beating Yeovil Town first in the League Cup and then through penalties in the FA Cup last Sunday. 

"The cup games have given us a confidence," said Spacey-Cale "But as we've said before the league is our priority so we have to shut the door on those performances and refocus again now."

"We can take a lot of belief from what we acheived in those two games but we have to focus again back on the league."

It's Saints' first league outing since their 7-1 demolition of Larkhall at AFC Totton's Snows Stadium at the beginning of the month. 

"Exeter are doing really well in the league but haven't played that many games. Which is good for them as they haven't got any pressure, they're coming from behind everybody else.

"We've got to be ready for the unexpected. We have to be prepared for a real battle and for a team who probably haven't hit a stride of form yet because of the distance between their games."
