Ladies set for U's test

James Honeyman's side travel to Cambridge United this evening...

11 October 2017

James Honeyman is expecting a tough game when MK Dons Ladies travel to face Cambridge United this evening.

The Dons travel to Mildenhall Town to play the U’s in a FAWPL South East Division One fixture – kick-off 7:45pm.

Honeyman spoke about how MK Dons Ladies are in good form, but made it known his side are aware of their tough opposition.

He said: “We know it’s going to be a tough game but we’re positive and we’re looking forward to it. We’ve won five in a row so we’ve given ourselves the best chance to win that game.

“It will be a very tough game – they’re a very good side but we’re a very good side and there will be very good football played with both sides trying to win.”

Both teams go into this game on the back of a successful outing in the third qualifying round of the SSE Women’s FA Cup. The U’s currently find themselves three points behind the Dons in the league, having also played a game less.

The Dons, who are currently in fourth, know that a win would put them on level points with current league leaders Ipswich Town. However, if AFC Wimbledon win their mid-week fixture they would go top, two points clear of the Dons even if they are victorious.

The U’s and the Dons have already played each other once this season, having met at Willen Road at the end of September. The Dons came out of the game with victory thanks to a last minute goal from Alice Hughes, after a battling performance from both sides.

Laura Mills featured as a sub in that game, but has since started the last two games for the Dons scoring two goals. Mills is hoping to continue her impressive start to the side, and spoke of how quickly she’s settled at the Dons.

She said: “I do believe I’ve settled quickly. I think they’re a fantastic bunch of girls and I’m really happy to be a part of this team.

“Hopefully, I can go on and improve and make it three in three on Wednesday.”
