Preview: Rovers Ladies v Crawley Wasps

There’s more silverware on the line for Rovers this weekend

27 April 2019

Rovers Ladies are aiming to retain the FA Women’s National League Cup when they face Crawley Wasps in the Final on Sunday.

The showpiece event is being held at Burton Albion FC’s Pirelli Stadium, with Rovers looking to keep hold of the trophy they won for the first time by beating Leicester City 3-1 in last season’s Final. 

Rovers saw off Southern Premier Division side Loughborough Foxes 4-0 in the last four back in March to book their place in Sunday’s Final.

Here’s our guide to the game… 

STATE OF PLAY

Rovers come into the game off the back of a 4-0 win over Huddersfield Town Ladies last Tuesday. 

Two goals from both Saffron Jordan and Natasha Flint secured a sixth win in a row for Gemma Donnelly’s side as they continue to finish the league season strongly. 

As always, we'll bring you team news and live updates on the game via social media. Fans can follow all the action on our official Twitter account, @RoversLadies, with kick-off scheduled for 2pm.
