Goals from Amy Rodgers and Karin Muya (brace) fired London City to a memorable 3-2 win over Blackburn on 23 April 2023.
Saffron Jordan and Lauren Thomas scored for the hosts.
PLAYERS TO WATCH:
Simon Parker’s side have cooled down since their blistering start to the season, entering the ninth weekend of the season hoping to snap a three-game losing streak.
Goalkeeper Lucy Brooks will play a key role for the hosts, with her impressive kicking ability known to create opportunities on the transition.
Lucy Shepherd, who featured for London City at Bamber Bride last term, is the main beneficiary of Brooks’ distribution, with her pace and directness a key element to watch on Sunday.
NEXT HOME GAME:
The Pride return to Princes Park next Sunday [12 November], hosting Birmingham City in the Club’s annual Rainbow Laces fixture.
