Megan Bowen celebrates with Eliza Collie

The Bluebirds head into Sunday’s fixture on the back of a brilliant away performance against The New Saints last week.

City took the lead through Megan Bowen, who finished powerfully from close-range, before a clinical second-half performance saw Iain Darbyshire’s side race to victory.

Eliza Collie doubled City’s advantage with a calm finish, before Seren Watkins netted from the penalty spot. Playmaker Molly Kehoe continued her fine campaign with a brilliant finish, with Madison Lloyd going on to score her first Adran Premier goal. In added-time, Tija Richardson scored from close-range to record a 6-0 win.

The Bluebirds are currently six points clear at the top of the table, having won nine and drawn one in the opening ten fixtures.

Opponents Wrexham are third in the table, trailing Swansea City by three points having played a game fewer than the Swans.

In their last fixture, the Red Dragons recorded a 1-0 win over Barry Town United, with Ava Suckley netting the winning goal.

Hollie Smith celebrates at Cardiff City Stadium

City welcomed Abergavenny Women to Cardiff City Stadium in November 2022 in front of fantastic support from the Bluebirds fans.

The Bluebirds recorded a memorable 9-0 victory, which was a catalyst in a hugely successful season, going on to win the Adran Premier title and the Bute Energy Welsh Cup.

Defender Hollie Smith, who started in the win over Abergavenny, said: “I think the biggest memory from the game was how quick we started. With the number of fans we had with us, it was near impossible for us to start slowly. The score line was unbelievable and the roar of the crowd every time the ball even entered the opposition’s half was incredible. Just seeing everyone’s happy faces was a memory we’ll all treasure forever.

“The fans were incredible and I fully believe they were the driving force behind our performance. Without them, it could’ve been a different story. They stayed right until the end in awful conditions, the freezing cold and the rain just to support us and I can speak for the group in saying we really appreciate everything they do for us.”

Ahead of this weekend’s fixture, the City defender added: “Sunday is a massive game for us. We look forward to challenging games and we are preparing hard in training to get the outcome that we want.

“Being at the stadium is an amazing feeling, but we look at it as if it’s any other game. Whether we are home, away or in the stadium, our preparations don’t change. We are all looking forward to Sunday and are excited to see everyone in the stadium again for what will hopefully be another memorable game.”
