Jemma Rose on the ball for Argyle Women

Preview | Argyle Women v London Bees

22/23 Fixtures

After a disappointing midweek defeat to Bridgwater United, the Greens will be looking to bounce back on Sunday at home to sixth place visitors London Bees.

Plymouth Argyle Women have struggled thus far to kick start their Women’s National League Southern Premier Division campaign, losing their first three fixtures and registering just a solo goal. Manager Ryan Perks will be looking for his side to bounce back and to see a positive reaction from the team after their recent run of defeats which sees them sit bottom of the league table on goal difference.

When Manager Ryan Perks was asked how the players are handling their tough start to the season his response was clear and honest. “Obviously they’re a bit down and deflated, that’s understandable.

“It would be easy to go in and rant and rave and say things aren’t good enough. We had a conversation, it was a discussion, we’re a team, we work hard, and we all want to win football matches.

“At the minute it’s not going our way, that will change. It did last season and I’m confident it will again this season.”

With the manager showing clear belief and determination, there is a feeling that a first league victory for Argyle’s women’s side cannot be far away.

In terms of team news, experienced midfielder Jemma Rose will return for this weekend’s fixture after her absence from Wednesday night's match. Jemma had a standout performance in the Greens’ previous home fixture against Oxford United and will be keen to continue that form going forward into this Sunday's clash. However, there are likely to be late fitness tests for midfield duo Kayley Lane and Beth Ireland, both of whom are struggling with niggling injuries.

Visitors London Bees currently sit in sixth place in the early league table with four points from their opening three fixtures and will be looking to build on their steady start to the campaign. After an opening day victory at newly promoted Billericay Town and a solid draw with Crawley Wasps, the Bees suffered defeat in midweek; going down by three goals to nil away at early pace-setters Oxford United. London Bees interim coach Marie Hourihan will therefore be looking for her side to bounce back this weekend in what is sure to be an entertaining fixture.

Argyle Women’s clash with London Bees takes place on Sunday, 4 September at the Manadon Sports & Community Hub with a 2:30pm kick-off. Tickets for the match will be on sale at the ground on the day and cost £5 for adults, while U3s have free entry.
