St Paul's Sports Ground
Preview: Lionesses v Doncaster Belles
The Lionesses prepare for the last home game of the season this Sunday.
Millwall Lionesses will play their last home game of the season on Sunday when they take on league leaders Doncaster Rovers Belles at St Paul’s Sportsground, Rotherhithe (kick off 3pm).
It will be a double header at St Paul’s as the Lionesses development side will face Reading at 10:30am the same day.
In the Lionesses most recent game they travelled to Sheffield to take on Sheffield Ladies. Millwall suffered a disappointing loss that day, as they lost the game 3-0.
Meanwhile, Doncaster’s last game was during the week on Wednesday night when they faced Sheffield Ladies. The Belles came out on top that night winning the game 2-1.
The last time these two sides met the points were shared. Doncaster took a 2-0 lead, but just before half-time Charlie Devlin scored a goal to give The Lionesses hope. It looked as though Doncaster would take all the points, but in the dying moments of the game Ashlee Hincks latched on to a long ball and poked it past the keeper to earn Millwall a valuable point.
This will be The Lionesses last home game of the season and all Millwall players and staff will want to see as many fans at the ground as possible to help Millwall secure all three points against a very tough Doncaster side.
There will also be a raffle running at the match on Sunday. There’s both a signed Millwall Lionesses and Millwall shirt up for grabs. You can buy your tickets at the game on Sunday.
