Preview: Saints vs Chesham

By SFC Media time Fri 10 Jan Saints vs Chesham United

Southampton FC Women are back in FA National league action this weekend, facing Chesham for the third time this season at AFC Totton’s Snows Stadium (kick-off 2PM GMT).

Marieanne Spacey-Cale’s side will be hoping to continue their winning run against the side, having recorded 5-2 and 1-0 victories in the league and FA Cup respectively at Chesham already this season.

Goals from Ella Pusey, Shannon Albuery, an own goal and a double from Shannon Sievwright got Saints’ season off to a flyer in August.

But it was a much tighter affair in their second visit to Chesham; Pusey with the only goal of the game as Sara Luce impressed between the sticks during November’s first-round FA Cup tie.

It’s Saints' first home game in just under two months, with important league and FA Cup victories at Yeovil Town and Cardiff City Ladies sandwiched between a 7-1 Hampshire cup win over AFC Bournemouth and this weekend.

Their last league outing at Snows Stadium came at the start of November; a 7-1 win over Larkhall Athletic.

Another three points at home this weekend would continue Saints’ unbeaten run, keeping them top of Division 1 South West with a game in hand over second placed Southampton Women’s, who they face towards the end of February.
