'It's an opportunity to showcase our game'

Tickets for Sunday's Barclays Women's Super League fixture against Chelsea have now sold out.

Fans will head to Meadow Park this weekend to watch two of the country's best going head to head in what's sure to be an exciting top-of-the-table clash.

And Joe Montemurro cannot wait for his side to put on a show in front of a full house.

"It's fantastic," our head coach said. "It's an amazing opportunity to showcase women's football. We're going to see 90 minutes of some of the world's best players on Sunday. To have them in our backyard, to have them here in the UK, to have it shown all over the world, is an amazing opportunity for the game to really take the next step.

"This is what we want. We want competitive games every week, we want high-level football every week. That's what we train for and it's what we're here for. The more competitive the games, the more the standard is of a high level. Bring it on, we want more of these games.

"That we have to continue at our rhythm, at our tempo, at our style for 90 minutes. We can't afford to drop it. They're a team that are very quick in transition and are very direct. We lost our way a little bit in the second half and we just need continuity. We need to make sure we start well and we finish well. I'm sure that we'll be competitive and make sure we get the best we can out of the game.

"It's a mindset of continuity, it's a mindset of playing the 90 minutes, it's a mindset of not being able to relax for any period of that game. We'll work to our high tempo, we'll work to the tempo that is going to give us the standard we need for a result on Sunday. 

"Tactically, we need to be smart. We need to be intelligent both in the phase of attacking and defending. We'll make sure that we're prepared for that with the work we've done during the year and obviously leading into the game."
