The Danske Bank Women's Premiership continues tonight as we preview all the matches in gameweek seven of the 2019 campaign.
Derry City v. Linfield (venue: Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium; kick-off 7.45pm)
This is a meeting between two sides in contrasting form with Derry City picking up just one point from their opening five league games while Linfield have won all five of their league fixtures.
Derry are yet to find the net this campaign and must surely beak that run if they are to take anything from this clash. Caoimhe Walsh returns for the Candystripes while Naomi McMullan may be available, although Rosie Cunningham is out with an ankle injury and Bronagh McGuinness is also unavailable.
Linfield, who have not conceded in the league this season, have won all six previous meetings between the clubs by an aggregate scoreline of 42-0.
Cliftonville Ladies v. Glentoran Women (venue: Solitude; kick-off 8pm)
The standout tie of the night sees two Belfast rivals, who have both have eyes on the title this season, go head-to-head at Solitude.
The Reds brought their two-game losing streak in the league last week with a four-goal North Belfast derby victory over Crusaders, but went down 3-1 at home to Sion Swifts in Monday's League Cup semi-final.
Glentoran are through to the final of the League Cup after a last four victory over Crusaders on Monday and are one point and one place ahead of the Reds in the league - sitting in third spot.
Recent meetings between these two have been incredibly close and competitive, with three wins apiece and three draws across the last nine league meetings - with just one game separated by more than one goal.
Comber Rec. Ladies v. Crusaders Strikers (venue: Londonderry Park Park; kick-off 8pm)
Danske Bank Premiership basement side Comber Rec. Ladies will be hopeful of adding to their one point so far as they host a Crusaders side who have lost each of their last four matches in the competition.
Winston Kerr is at the helm of his 102nd competitive game for Comber and the boss has had plenty of successes as the club have risen up through the local pyramid and won last season's Championship but they are still looking for their first ever win in the top flight.
The Crues may have a disadvantage having lost their League Cup semi-final against Glentoran 1-0 on Monday night.
