After a dominant FA Cup win over Helston at the weekend, Saints return to league action on Sunday with a trip to Maidenhead United.

Their last league outing was at Snows Stadium; a 3-0 win over Exeter City thanks to goals from Lucia Kendall and Rachel Panting either side of a visiting own goal.

Maidenhead have had a mixed start to the new season, splitting a win, draw and defeat evenly across their opening three games.

Last time out they came away from Cheltenham Town as narrow 2-1 winners, thanks to goals from Nicole Barrett and Sarah Thompson.

LAST MEETING

Saints and Maidenhead only met the once last season due to COVID-19 curtailing their season.

That meeting came on March 1st, which ended up being the final game of the 2019/20 season for both sides as Saints ran out 7-0 winners.

Saints were dominant at Staplewood Campus, smashing seven past Maidenhead with an Alisha Ware hat-trick the pick of the bunch.

Further goals from Shannon Sievwright, Georgie Freeland and a double from Shannon Albuery confirmed the final win of the season.
