WOMEN'S PREMIERSHIP: GAMEWEEK 20 PREVIEW

05 Oct 2021

The Danske Bank Women’s Premiership concludes on Wednesday night with a full round of matches in gameweek 20 - the final matchday.

After last season’s shortened campaign due to the pandemic, this season saw a full restoration with each of the sides in the top-flight playing each other four times in a campaign that began in late April.

Glentoran will lift the league title following their match against Derry City, having secured the crown following last week’s win over Cliftonville.

The Glens are three points clear at the top and courtesy of their superior head-to-head record against the Reds, cannot be caught.

Elsewhere, Linfield host Crusaders as Sion Swifts travel to Cliftonville.

Glentoran Women v Derry City Women
This is a meeting between the top and bottom sides in the league with Glentoran’s title party hopeful of adding another three points.

The Glens have racked up 15 goals and six points in their two previous league matches against the Candystripes this campaign.

Glentoran have won all 15 previous meetings between the sides and have won their last eight league matches in succession.

Linfield Ladies v Crusaders Strikers
Crusaders will be aiming to make it four wins out of four against Linfield in the league this season.

An Emily Wilson hat-trick helped the Strikers to a 6-2 win over the Blues in August, while they won the previous meeting at New Midgely Park 3-1.

Jonny Tuffey’s side ended a four-game losing streak in the league with a victory over Sion last week, a result which guaranteed them a top three finish.

Cliftonville Ladies v Sion Swifts Ladies
Cliftonville will be aiming to bounce back from the disappointment of missing out on the league title by seeing out their season with a win against Sion.

Despite winning 15 of their 19 league games to date – including all three meetings against Sion – the Reds just fell short of landing the Premiership crown.

Marissa Callaghan, Kirsty McGuinness and Louise McDaniel were all on target as the Reds won 3-2 against Sion in August, when Caoirse Doherty and Kerry Brown scored for the visitors.
