Megan Bowen in action for Cardiff City Women

Pre-Wrexham | Megan Bowen

Ahead of welcoming Wrexham to Cardiff City Stadium, we caught up with defender Megan Bowen. 

This Sunday will be the third meeting between the two sides this season, with City claiming wins in the reverse league fixture and in the Adran Trophy Quarter-Final. 

"We always love the opportunity to play at Cardiff City Stadium," Megan began. "It's a big fixture against Wrexham, who have done really well. We're hoping for another three points. We have a good record against them this year, so the chance to hopefully continue that in front of a big crowd is a huge positive for us.

"It will be a very physical battle, which is something we always enjoy. We know that with the quality and depth we have in the squad that we're capable of getting the three points and that's what we'll be aiming to do."

Since joining the Club, Megan has been a part of a formidable back three, alongside experienced duo Siobhan Walsh and Hannah Power

The Bluebirds have the best defensive record in the league this season, conceding just four goals in ten matches.

Megan continued: "Any opportunity you get to play with more experienced players who have played in Europe before and have been in this team for a long time is always an opportunity to learn and that's what I want to do in training and in games. I want to improve on my performances by watching and playing alongside them. 

"Us three all understand each other and know how each other want to play. That helps on matchday, because we practise a lot as a three in training, so we can take that into games. That's what we most look forward to, not only showing your teammates, but also everyone watching the consistency that we bring."

The Bluebirds have played at Cardiff City Stadium three times since the start of last season, earning wins over Abergavenny, Swansea City and Barry Town United.

A huge positive in those victories was the City fans, who have also shown great support at home matches at Cardiff International Sports Campus and in away fixtures this season.

"We've got a lot of loyal fans that come week-in, week-out and always wish us good luck on social media," Megan added. "That's something that really drives us to put in a good performance. It's important that we do that for them.

"We're more than grateful, we look forward to playing in front of them every week and to be able to play in front of a big crowd at Cardiff City Stadium, we're hoping it's going to be a good day for us."
