Womens Premiership


25 Oct 2022

Cliftonville Ladies will win the Danske Bank Women’s Premiership in the penultimate week if they secure a North Belfast derby victory over Crusaders Strikers.

The Reds are four points clear of Glentoran Women – whom they face on the final day – going into the final two rounds of action, with the Glens hosting Linfield Ladies on Wednesday.

The other matches this week sees Mid Ulster Ladies play host to Sion Swifts Ladies as Derry City Women travel to Lisburn Ladies.

Mid Ulster Ladies vs Sion Swifts Ladies, Mid Ulster Sports Arena, 7.45pm
This is the third meeting between these two sides this campaign with Sion Swifts Ladies triumphing on both previous occasions, 3-0 and 2-1 respectively.

Caoirse Doherty and Naomi McLaughlin were on target last time out for Sion in a narrow 2-1 victory in August, when Jessica Magee found the net for Mid Ulster Ladies.

Mid Ulster will be hopeful of building on their four points – all gained against Derry City Women – this campaign.

Glentoran Women vs Linfield Ladies, Ashfield Boys HS, 8pm
Glentoran Women need to win this game to keep their titles hopes alive and have beaten rivals Linfield Ladies by an aggregate scoreline of 11-1 over two matches.

A Joely Andrews doubled helped propel the Glens to a four-goal win at the Blues in August while the last meeting in East Belfast finished 7-1 to the hosts, with Casey Howe bagging a brace in that meeting.

For the Glens to bring the league title race to the final day, they must win this game and hope Cliftonville Ladies drop points.

Crusaders Strikers vs Cliftonville Ladies, Seaview, 8pm
A win for Cliftonville Ladies at North Belfast rivals Crusaders Strikers will see them win the league but a slip-up would leave the door open to Glentoran Women pipping them to the crown in a final-day showdown.

The Reds have won 14 of their 15 league matches to date this campaign but their narrow 2-1 win at Seaview earlier in the season was a nervy one – as the hosts did not score from the penalty spot while the game was level just after the hour mark.

The Strikers have 29 points from their 15 league games to date and will likely prove once again to be a tough opponent for the Reds.

Lisburn Ladies vs Derry City Women, Bluebell Stadium, 8pm
Two of Derry City Women’s three points this season have been won against Lisburn Ladies, but the hosts will be looking to add to their 11 points this campaign.

Both of the previous meetings between these two sides in the top-flight have ended scoreless, both at the Bluebell Stadium and the Brandywell.
