Albion Women v Lincoln City Women match preview

7th December

Albion Women will begin their Women’s FA Cup journey tomorrow as they take on Lincoln City at Walsall Wood from 1pm.

The game was initially postponed last Sunday due to a waterlogged pitch and with the third round draw having taken place during the week, a trip to Southampton Women will be awaiting the winner of the tie.

Football is everyone's game and the match is the side's deisgnated Rainbow Laces fixture, promoting LGBT awareness in the sport and beyond.

Louis Sowe’s side are unbeaten at home in their last five, overcoming Leafield Athletic 2-0 last time out in the Birmingham County Cup.

Albion’s opponents ran out comfortable victors in their last game, putting 11 goals past Grimsby Borough in the Lincolnshire County Cup.

Both sides have not played in three weeks so will be looking forward to getting back out on the pitch again, something that excites Albion’s Fran Orthodoxou.

“It will be nice to get back into the rhythm of things again after having a few weeks out,” said Orthodoxou.

The midfielder is also keen to start a run in the cup.

“It will mean a lot to go far in the competition, it’s what everyone wants to do.

“We’re going to face some hard opponents but if you’re going to be better then you’re going to have to beat the rest,” she said.

Albion Women play their home fixtures at Walsall Wood Football Club, Lichfield Road, Walsall Wood, Walsall, WS9 9NP.

Season ticket holders at The Hawthorns go free for all fixtures, with general entry £5 for Adults and £1 for concessions.
