Lincoln United Women are hoping to bounce back with a win against Oughtibridge WM Women under the floodlights on Thursday night after a disappointing goalless draw to Mansfield Town Ladies last Sunday.
‘The Whites’ are set to face the North Yorkshire side for the second time this season but the first in the league. The two premier division sides battled in the quarter-final of the League Cup, where Chris Funnell’s side came out on top with a convincing 5-1 victory.
A win for United could potentially see them move up to third place in the league with two games in hand on Mansfield Town.
Manager Chris Funnell said that it is ‘hugely’ important to stay consistent in every league game ahead of the League Cup final against Derby County Academy at the end of the season. He said: “The main focus is to keep up the momentum for the final.
“We need to make sure that we continue to put in as many good performances as we can, and we aim to go unbeaten until the end of the season.”
United will look to make it nine games unbeaten in all competitions when they travel to Oughtibridge WM Women on the 28th of April, 19:45 KO.
