Women Preview: Huge Lasses clash at Coventry

Sunderland Women are set for a hugely important clash on the road as they take on Coventry United Women at the Butts Park Arena in the Barclays Women’s Championship this Sunday (KO 2pm). 


Last time out, the Lasses put in a hard-working performance but were beaten 3-0 by WSL side Manchester City Women at the Academy Stadium. 


Mel Reay’s side are looking for their first win since their 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace in October.


Team news


A clean bill of health is expected for Sunday’s game. 


Long-term absentees Faye Mullen, Keira Ramshaw, Emily Hutchinson and Abby Towers are still unavailable. 




Still looking for their first points of the season, Coventry are bottom of the table with five goals scored and 32 conceded from nine games. 


Last season’s away visit to Coventry ended in a 1-0 win for the Lasses, with Jessica Brown’s 60th minute goal the difference between the two sides. The reverse fixture at Eppleton ended in a 0-0 draw.
