Rovers Ladies play their penultimate league game this Monday night when they take on Huddersfield Town at Ewood Park - kick-off 7.45pm.

It has been a successful campaign for Gemma Donnelly's side as the league winners bring their season to a close with back-to-back home games at Ewood starting with tonight's match against the Terriers.

The Ladies will be looking to finish unbeaten, but will be coming up against a Huddersfield side who are one of only two teams to have taken points off them this year.

It was a 3-3 draw when the two sides met back in August. The Rovers coming from 2-0 down and then 3-2 down to earn a share of the spoils thanks to a brace from Saffron Jordan and a strike from Faye McCoy.

Donnelly expects tonight's visitors will provide a stern test, but she's looking forward to being back at Ewood as the game will be the perfect preparation for their forthcoming play-off match against Tottenham.

"The last time we met was the second game of the season when Huddersfield held us to a draw," said Donnelly.

"This proved to be the catalyst for our unbelievable season. They posed us some difficult questions which we answered well.

"We've not played since winning the County Cup final against Fylde, but it has been a welcome break to allow the players to re-energise, whilst working hard on the training pitch.

"But playing at Ewood for the remaining two league games will be the perfect preparation for our play-off game against Spurs later this month. The players can prepare themselves for playing in a stadium, in front of a crowd, and on a large pitch."

The Ladies follow up this evening's game at home to Stoke City next Sunday where they'll receive their FA Women's Premier League North trophy.

They then face Premier League South winners Tottenham in a play-off at The Valley, Charlton on Sunday 28th May.

Season ticket holders can see tonight's match for free on production of their season ticket card. General admission prices are £3 Adults, £1 Concessions.
