Women: Crystal Palace (H) Preview - November 5

By: Watford FC Staff

Watford FC Women return to action this weekend against Crystal Palace (November 5, 2pm KO), looking to turn around a poor run of form that started prior to the recent international break.

Welcoming the Eagles, who sit fourth in the Barclays Women’s Championship, the Hornets are looking to narrow the gap on 10th-placed London City Lionesses and escape the relegation zone.

The Match

Both sides come into the game off the back of defeats away from home, keen to return to winning ways.

The Golden Girls fell to a 5-2 loss away at Birmingham City, whilst Crystal Palace came up short against London rivals Charlton Athletic.

Aside from their last fixture, the sides have had contrasting fortunes up to this point. Crystal Palace sit fourth, just four points off top spot with a game in hand.

Their free scoring has taken the league by storm, boasting joint top goalscorers Annabel Blanchard and Elise Hughes in their ranks (seven).

Meanwhile the Hornets remain four points from safety and on a run of five straight league defeats, but have been hard at work on the training pitch over the past two weeks.

Former Hornet Araya Dennis returns to face the side she helped get promoted last season, memorably scoring the winning goal against Oxford United at Vicarage Road in April.

Get down and support the Golden Girls, as they look for a massive three points to start November.
