Exeter City Women return to action this weekend, Moneyfields visit the Exwick Hub in a National League fixture that will prove a strong test for the Grecians.
Moneys have settled comfortably in the division after their promotion in 2022 and currently sit fifth with fourteen points from seven games. Karl Watson’s team made a host of summer signings, picking some strong talent from the large pool of South Coast players. Moneys began life in the National League with a draw against City, Jade Widdows giving the home side the lead before Becky Dandridge levelled a competitive early season contest.
A draw against AFC Bournemouth followed, while wins against Larkhall Athletic, Portishead Town, Selsey and Maidenhead United see Watson’s side enter 2023 in a strong position. Southampton Women’s FC are the only side to beat Sunday’s opponents in the league, a contest they finished with only ten players.
Widdows has proved the main goal threat this season, the former Portsmouth forward hitting seven goals in eight games and her pace will be a threat on Sunday. Moneyfields strongest asset in the league this season has been their defence, only Cardiff City have conceded less and it will be a tough task for City’s frontline to increase their impressive National League goalscoring records at the weekend.
After a brief Christmas break, City return knowing that January is a crucial month. Facing four of the current top six in their next four league fixtures, Abbie Britton and Aaron Wakley’s side will be aware that how hey fare in the coming weeks will play a big role in where the Grecians finish the season. First up is Moneyfields and, with six of the top eight set to play in Devon over the coming months, home form will be crucial.
