Bees v Lionesses preview

London Bees may be struggling to find any form but Millwall Lionesses star Kylie Davies insists her side’s own personal history against them does not reflect the league table.

The Bees are anchored to the bottom of The FA Women’s Super League 2 with just four points to their name – yet one of those came against Millwall back in April.

Naomi Cole completed the rescue job – securing the Lionesses a share of the spoils with her late penalty – a match that Davies remembers all too well.

This time Millwall will be travelling to The Hive and Davies is confident that at the very least her side can add to their 11 WSL goals so far this season, even if star forward Emma Whitter is sidelined.

“We have played them twice and they were both good, competitive games,” she said. “They dominated most of the possession in those games but it is about taking your chances which we did not and that is something we have struggled with.

“We are working hard in training and need to get goals, it has not helped that our main striker Emma Whitter is out for the rest of the season, but we know what we have to do and hopefully we can kick on.”

According to Cherie Rowlands, the Bees have targeted the fixture as a possible to return to form.

And the goalkeeper has also set herself some personal goals to fulfil before the end of the season as injury has hampered her campaign to date.

“We have drawn twice against them this season, so we go into this one looking to improve on our previous results and we would like to come away with a win,” said Rowlands.

“It will be tough game, we are both quite similar in the way that we play but after getting two draws we are looking for the win.

“I have been a bit hot and cold, I do well and play a few games but then I pick up a little niggle and I am out again.

“It is disheartening for me, because I do well but then miss out through injury and have to build up again.”
