In December, The Bees put in an impressive second half performance to secure the three points with a 2-1 victory after Melissa Johnson had put Leicester in front with her sixth goal of the season.

Last Time Out

City
Jonathan Morgan’s side drew 0-0 away to Aston Villa Ladies last time out in front of a record crowd at Villa Park. Despite feeling that they should have won the game, the point sees Leicester City Women remain unbeaten so far in 2019.

London Bees
London Bees have been on an impressive run of form lately with their last match ending in a 2-0 win over struggling Lewes. Luke Swindlehurst’s side have just two defeats in their last eight matches.
