Lincoln United Women will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host Oughtibridge WM Women under the lights at Ashby Avenue in their penultimate game of the season.

'The Whites' occupy third place in the table, four points behind Chesterfield, who have played one game more.

'The Bridge' will be playing their final league game on Thursday night and will finish their campaign in a respectable fifth place regardless of the result at Ashby Avenue.

This will be the third meeting between the two sides this season, who have previously locked horns in the quarter-final of the EMWRFL Cup and also in the reverse league fixture at Oughtibridge.

In the last fixture between the two sides, United fought back from a two-goal deficit, which saw Chris Funnell's side travel back from Sheffield with a close 3-2 victory and three points on the road.

Manager Chris Funnell is expecting a strong reaction from his side after Sunday's defeat and hopes for a strong end to the season. He said:
"I am expecting a reaction because the performance that we saw on Sunday is not what anybody is used to from this club.

"It's now about playing for pride and finishing second, we have an opportunity to do that by winning our next two games, and that has to be the sole focus because we want to finish as high as we can in the league."

Heather Gardener, Elise Keyworth and Lucy Farrow all return to the squad after missing last week's trip to Northampton.

However, Abi Ringrose is still out due to injury, and Sally Cairns is also unavailable for Thursday night.

All focus now turns to the last evening fixture under the lights at Ashby Avenue this season, with kick-off at 19:45.
