Action from the last round of the Danske Bank Women's Premiership (c) Linfield FC
Wednesday, 16 May 2018
It's back to the Danske Bank Women's Premiership action this week with gameweek four of the season.
Derry City Ladies v Cliftonville Ladies (venue: Brandywell; kick-off: 8pm)
Derry City Ladies come into this fixture after a fantastic 2-0 win over Sion Swifts in last weeks League Cup. Derry however will be without Rosie Cunningham who is out for 4-6 weeks with cracked ribs from the Sion game. Cliftonville travel to the North West boosted by the recent acquisitions of Trudi Harbinson (from Crusaders Strikers), Amber Dempster (Linfield Ladies) and Hannah Grieve (Portadown Ladies). These sides played out an entertaining pre-season friendly in which Cliftonville won comfortably but a tighter game is expected at the Brandywell.
Linfield Ladies v Crusaders Strikers (venue: Midgely Park; kick-off: 8pm)
Linfield Ladies and Crusaders Strikers will meet for the second time in a week. Linfield triumphed 7-0 in last weeks League Cup Quarter Final fixture. The host side have adapted well and have settled into their new Midgley Park home winning every fixture they have played in it this season. Crusaders have made a steady start to their league campaign with two wins and a draw from their fixtures and currently occupy second place.
Sion Swifts Ladies v Portadown Ladies (venue: Darragh Park; kick-off: 8pm)
Sion host Portadown Ladies for the first meeting under the NIFL umbrella. Sion suffered a shock defeat to Derry City last week in the League Cup. The Swifts will be boosted with Aimee Mackin, Tyler Toland, Taz McCarter and Moya Feehan back in the squad after injury spells. Meanwhile Portadown will travel North West aiming to pick up their first point of the season.
