Preview | Crawley Wasps v Argyle Women
Argyle Women gained a huge three points with a win over London Bees last weekend, and look to continue that buzz as they travel to Crawley Wasps on Sunday.
An Amber Pollock goal in the dying embers of the game at The Hive gave the Pilgrims a deserved 2-1 victory in North London, to boost Argyle’s chances of survival in the FA Women’s National League Premier Division South. The Greens are two points below the relegation dotted line, with games in hand on some teams around them.
Sunday’s hosts, Crawley, are bottom of the league, without a win all season. Argyle beat them 2-0 when the sides met earlier in the season.
“We left it late!” said Perks, of the game at London Bees. “I thought we dominated the game for the first 45 minutes. We controlled the game and should have gone in a little bit more comfortable. We knew London Bees would come at us in the second half, we weathered a bit of a storm, and got over the line in the final few minutes.
“It was great to get three points on the board and hopefully we can continue the momentum this Sunday.
“We played Crawley Wasps earlier in the season and beat them 2-0 at Manadon, so we go in there full of optimism that we can get the three points. We know it won’t be easy. Their results have been improving, but we need to do our thing.
“We have put the league back in our hands to a degree, with games in hand. We can focus on what we are doing, get some points on the board and get up the table quickly.”
