Women's football: The Women’s Super League takes a break this weekend as the division’s eight teams face off in the second edition of the Continental Cup.
Arsenal Ladies, who won the inaugural competition last year, travel to Lincoln on Sunday as they continue their defence and will be desperate to win after suffering disappointment in the FA Women’s Cup and the Champions League in recent weeks.
Elsewhere FA Women’s Cup finalists Birmingham will be hoping to book their place in the semi-final when they visit Bristol Academy.
The club are understandably buoyant at the prospect of their final date on May 26, but winger Karen Carney has warned her team-mates to focus on the match in hand.
Carney said: “The Cup final’s still a couple of weeks away. With our squad you don’t know who’s going to play or what’s going to happen, so the main thing right now is the league and taking each game as it comes.”
Chelsea, also finalists in the FA Women’s Cup, host Liverpool, while Everton visit Doncaster.
Tickets to all four matches can be purchased on the day, with the most expensive being £6 to attend Lincoln versus Arsenal.
