Rovers Ladies face London Bees in a crucial Championship clash on Sunday.

Here’s all you need to know ahead of the game…


It's an 2pm kick-off on Sunday 15th December at The Hive Stadium in Barnet.


The Blues are looking to get back to winning ways when they travel to North London, following successive defeats to Leicester City and London City Lionesses.

But they will take heart from a positive performance against the Lionesses and a spirited display away to Aston Villa in the Continental Cup on Wednesday.  


Lee Burch’s side were on the end of a 3-1 defeat against high flyers Sheffield United in their last league meeting.

That leaves them sitting in fifth position in the Championship table, with 11 points from their 10 games.

And in midweek WSL leaders Arsenal beat the Bees 9-0 in the Continental League Cup Group Stage.


Rovers will want revenge for the early season defeat at home to the Bees. Nikita Whinnett’s goal proved to be the difference between the two sides in the first league meeting back in August.


Goalkeeper Fran Stenson returns to the squad, as do Serena Fletcher and Alex Taylor after all missing the trip to Aston Villa, but Rovers are still without midfielder Danielle Whitham.


Tickets are available to buy on the gate at The Hive - adults are priced at £4, concessions at £2 and U17s at £1.
