Southampton FC Women return to action in the Barclays Women’s Championship as they take on promotion hopefuls Bristol City at Ashton Gate.
Bristol City vs Saints
Barclays Women’s Championship
Ashton Gate Stadium
Sunday 25th September, 3pm BST
For ticket details, see below
Saints come into the fixture off the back of a win against then top-of-the-league Crystal Palace, as Lexi Lloyd-Smith shone on her first start, scoring a brace to make sure that Coral Haines’ goal was little more than a consolation.
The Robins come into the fixture having secured three wins from three in their opening fixtures, against Coventry United, Blackburn Rovers and Sunderland and currently sit top of the table.
With over 3000 tickets sold for the fixture, Saints will be hoping to once again spoil the party against another high-flying side.
Referee: Ella Broad
Assistant Referee: Rosie Johns
Assistant Referee: Hatley Hetherington
Fourth Official: Levi Gray
WHICH KIT WILL SAINTS BE WEARING?
Saints will be wearing the turquoise away kit at Ashton Gate.
Saints welcomed Bristol City to St Mary’s last season in the fourth round of the Vitality Women’s FA Cup.
Nothing could separate the sides in the 90 minutes, but an Ella Morris goal early in extra-time saw Marieanne Spacey-Cale’s Saints move forward in the competition.
“We’ve had to make sure that we’re ready for Sunday’s fixture against Bristol City. This league doesn’t stop.
“Every game is a tough game and that’s the point we’ve been making to the players at every training session.
“Performances and training always have to be at the right level to compete in this league.”
Tickets are available to purchase from Bristol City's website with Adults priced at £8 and Concessions between £3 and £6 dependent on category.
Saints ask fans to allow plenty of time to arrive at Ashton Gate due to Bristol Half Marathon and surrounding roadworks.
Full travel information can be found on the Bristol City website here.
