Gillingham come to Oaklands Park on Sunday to face Chichester City Ladies in a rearranged fixture rained off just before the Christmas break.

City have been in fine form having lost only once in the past six games and have booked their place in the fourth found of the Women’s FA Cup.

Matt Wright’s side have picked up wins over C&K Basildon, Luton Town and Gillingham, scoring 15 goals in those six games.

The team will be bolstered with the return of Jess Lewry following her one-match suspension after seeing red in the second round of the FA Cup.

In the reverse fixture Chichester ran out 4-0 winners.

It’s a 2pm kick-off. Admission is £3 – under-16s get in free.
