First Team Match Preview: Doncaster Rovers Belles

BEDWORTH WELCOME THE BELLES

View the match day programme here.

5th September 2021, Kick Off 2pm.

The first team host Doncaster Rovers Belles and are looking to pick up their first points of the 2021/22 campaign. After numerous strong performances without the goals to match, the Greenbacks will be hoping to find the back of the net and get off the mark nice and early.

Opposition

Belles had a mixed pre-season but got the FAWNL Division One campaign off to a winning start with 1-0 victories over Burton Albion and Sporting Khalsa. They then suffered a difficult defeat to Lincoln City Ladies so will be looking to bounce back from that in today’s fixture against Bedworth. This fixture usually bodes well for Doncaster and they will be hoping that this fortune continues.

Team News 

We welcome Asya Ali Osman and Alysha Stanley back into the squad for today’s game and both will be hoping for some minutes to cause trouble for the Belles defence. Toni Kingscott looks set to start after a solid performance against Long Eaton United, with Alice Bates battling for a starting position in the defence after coming off the bench last time out. From an attacking perspective, Charlotte Taylor hopes to continue her strong start to the season and Kirsty Farnsworth will be looking to top the chart when it comes to top goalscorer after this weekends fixtures.
