Preview: Gillingham Ladies

Dons Women prepare for their third league game within a week…

24 February 2023

Charlie Bill and his team will travel to Gillingham to face the side, who are currently three points ahead of MK Dons within the FAWNL Southern Premier Division league table.

Recently, the Dons Women faced Cheltenham Town at Evesham United’s ground, which resulted in a 2-2 draw. That, as well as a narrow defeat on the road against Watford, makes up two of the three away games that the team are participating in within this week.
 
The final fixture of the trio will commence on Sunday, a FAWNL league clash, which could alter the standing of the league table.

This fixture is scheduled to take place at the Bauvill Stadium, ME4 6LR. Tickets to this tie are priced at £5 per adult and £3 per concession whilst Under-16s go FREE. KO - 2:30pm
 
THE OPPOSITION
Gillingham, who currently occupy seventh place, which is one position above MK Dons, have recently claimed back-to-back victories. The home side will seek to sustain their winning form in their mission to keep Charlie Bill’s Women below them in the league table.
 
Heading into this weekend, a three-point gap currently separates the two sides. However, the Dons’ goal difference is one greater than Sunday’s opponents.



LAST TIME OUT

In their previous outing, MK Dons claimed a point on the road against Cheltenham Town Ladies. A result that Charlie Bill will look to build on as the team prepares for Gillingham.
 
Angelina Nixon’s goal at the death of the first half granted the Dons with the lead, although Cheltenham’s equaliser on the hour mark cancelled that advantage. Coupar then restored the edge over the Robinesses, but once again the home side drew level.

Nixon and Coupar are currently the only two players within the squad to supply a remarkable total of 20+ goal contributions in their 2022/23 campaign so far.
 
The Gills claimed a 1-0 victory over Crawley Wasps during their mid-week action. A match prior, saw the first league meeting between this weekend’s teams, which resulted in a 2-0 victory in favour of Gillingham.
 
The hosts will want to continue their two-game winning streak and ensure that they remain above Charlie Bill’s Women within the league table.
 
UPCOMING ACCOLADES

The Woman between the sticks Chloe Sansom could achieve her 20 appearance, as well as her 20 start against the Gills.

Nicola Puddick could join her goalkeeper teammate to claim 20 appearances this weekend.


If named within the starting XI, Lucy Wood could achieve 15 starts, as well as appearances. Not only that, but if the number 11 is to score or assist she would also claim ten goal contributions for the season so far.



Sofia Stovold could earn her tenth appearance since recently returning from a long stint on the side-lines due to injury. Leoni Miceli could also be awarded with her tenth appearance of the season.
 
MK Dons Women’s top goal-scorer Mollie Coupar could increase her tally to an outstanding 20 if she is to locate the back of the net against Gillingham.
