Preview: Bristol City Women v Brighton and Hove Albion

Saturday will be the first time the two clubs have met in a professional game the in the WSL era.

Tomorrow’s meeting

Both sides come into tomorrow’s game off the back of victories in their previous outing.

City Women defeated Yeovil 2-0 in Somerset and Brighton ran out 1-0 winners over Sheffield Ladies in WSL 2 at Culver Road.

Albion have two wins and one loss so far in the Continental Tyres Cup, with victories over Yeovil and Tottenham to their name and a defeat to Chelsea.

The Vixens opened their cup campaign with two defeats to Tottenham and Chelsea, but a 2-0 victory over Yeovil enables them to qualify on Saturday if they win by two clear goals and results go their way elsewhere.

One-to-watch:

Ini-Abasi Umotong – The prolific striker has scored 5 goals in 8 games so far this season in league and cup.
