📝 Women's Match Preview: Maidenhead United (A)

City on the road this Sunday

11 March 2022

Exeter City Women make the long trip to Maidenhead United on Sunday, with the Grecians looking to achieve three consecutive League wins for the first time this season.

Maidenhead have enjoyed a steady season, currently sitting fifth in the National League table, one place above City. The teams recently met on the first game back after the Christmas break, and it was the Berkshire side that took the three points, Simone O’Brien with the winner on what was a frustrating afternoon for the Grecians.

Since the victory in Devon, United have found points hard to come by. Defeats to Chesham, Cheltenham and AFC Bournemouth have been atoned by a victory at Poole Town, alongside a strong performance to hold Bournemouth on the Cherries’ visit to York Road. Nicole Barrett has been a consistent goal threat for Ryan Taylor’s team; her nine goals will make her the one to watch for the City defence on Sunday.

After victories over Swindon and Portishead, the Grecians will be eager to continue their good run on Sunday. At their best, Abbie Britton and Aaron Wakley’s team are a match for any team in the division, but January’s defeat underlined the quality within the league and what can happen if City do not perform at their best at York Road.

With a double header against third placed Chesham United to follow, City are now entering the most significant part of their season with every game vital in the desire to achieve the goals set out at the start of the campaign.
