FA WSL Preview: Liverpool look to build - Everton challenge excites Bristol Academy

Lincoln Ladies v Liverpool Ladies; Sincil Bank , Saturday 13 August, Kick Off: 1230.

Bottom side Liverpool travel to Sincil Bank to take on Lincoln, live on ESPN, and Reds manager Robbie Johnson believes his side can build on their first win of the season, having defeated Chelsea last week.

By David Brenchley

"Lincoln beat us 1-0 at our place and we've certainly improved since then," he told BBC Merseyside. "We've won against Chelsea and Lincoln are pretty similar, so we can go there and beat Lincoln."

The sides met each other last season in the Premier League Northern Division - the third tier of English women's football - and Lady Imps boss Rod Wilson is looking forward to facing his old foes again.

"We've played them a lot in recent years and it's always been a tough encounter. Both teams are high in confidence and I'm looking forward to a good encounter," he said.

Having been disappointed with his side's capitulation to Arsenal a fortnight ago, Wilson is pleased to be back on track and has targeted a top half finish to the season.

"We're taking it one game at a time but we're obviously looking for a good finish. If we win our final games we can finish fourth or fifth. The top half of the table, in our first season, would be brilliant."

Bristol Academy Women v Everton Ladies; Stoke Gifford Stadium , Saturday 13 August, Kick Off: 1830.

Bristol Academy manager Mark Sampson is expecting a tough challenge when his side take on Champions League quarter finalists Everton on Saturday evening.

The Vixens have won their previous two games and are looking to end the season on a high and Sampson is pleased with his side's showings since the World Cup break.

"The level of our performances since the start of the second half of the season have been very high and the group are very comfortable in our system and their roles in the team," he said.

"We need to focus on that again Staurday make sure our individual performance levels are right and show the courage and belief to be true to ourselves against a very strong opponent."

The Toffees have been at the top of the women's game in England for a few years now and, despite them having an indifferent campaign so far, they are always a threat.

Sampson added: "We know on Saturday playing against Everton we face a massive challenge.

"They have many experienced Internationals and have been together as a group for a long time so they have that understanding on the pitch which makes them a very difficult opponent.

"But it is a challenge we are really excited by, we feel it is coming at a time when we have excellent momentum and the group is in a very strong moment."
