Donny Up First For Blues

Everton Ladies kick off the second part of the season tomorrow away to Doncaster Belles.

The Blues, who had a mixed start to the first part of the season, see themselves sitting fourth on the same points as Bristol, Birmingham and Chelsea.

They go into the game on the back of a great 2-0 victory away at Birmingham in the final game of the first half of the season and will be hoping that they can use the confidence from the win and generate some much needed momentum by recording a win against Doncaster Belles on Wednesday evening.

The Toffees have had Rachel Brown, Fara Williams and Jill Scott away representing Team GB in The Olympics where they reached the quarter-finals of the tournament eventually losing to Canada 2-1.

The break also saw Mo Marley take her U19 squad to Turkey to play in The European Championship.

Involved there were fellow team-mates Alex Greenwood, Nikita Parris and Paige Williams - and these players will have certainly gained valuable experience of tournament football during this time.

In order to maintain match fitness the rest of the squad have been put through their paces in training and by playing in a number of training matches.

On the whole, the squad appears to be in great shape going into the second half of the campaign.

The last time the two teams met Everton won the game 1-0 in a tight contest where a late strike from Michelle Hinnigan proved to be the difference.

And with both teams undoubtedly wanting to kick-off the second part of the season with a win, it promises to be a great game.

K.O 7.45pm. Keepmoat Stadium, Stadium Way, Lakeside, Doncaster DN4 5JW.
