Brighton & Hove Albion women make the long trip down to Devon when they face Plymouth Argyle today, kick-off 2pm.
Manager James Marrs is eager to see his side continue their fine defensive form against the Pilgrims, with the Seagulls’ backline yet to be breached this season.
He told seagulls.co.uk, “We’re really chuffed at not having conceded a goal in five games now.
“We’ll set up like we normally do in each game. We have notes on Plymouth and we’ll go over a few things that we’ll look to do at the weekend.
“It will be a physical test and their home form isn’t too bad. We know we’ll have to play well in order to pick up the three points.
“But the players are in a buoyant mood at the moment after the Lewes result and hopefully we can get another victory.
“Our aim is to secure as many points as we can, make sure we’re solid defensively and that our forwards do the business at the other end of the pitch.”
Probable Squad: Faye Baker (GK), Molly Towers (GK), Deanna Cooper, Vicky Ashton-Jones, Catherine Cooper, Danielle Rowe, Sophie Perry, Charlotte Young, Kirsty Barton, Jay Blackie (captain), Charlotte Gurr, Lucy Somes, Amy Taylor, Kate Natkiel, Kim Stenning, Paige Baker-Carroll, Megan Fox.
ALBION WOMEN’S DEVELOPMENT SQUAD host Charlton Athletic at the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre today, kick-off 2.30pm.
The Seagulls will be looking to bounce back from a 2-0 defeat to Queens Park Rangers last week, when goals from Kasha Petit and Zemeka Clarke secured victory for the West Londoners.
