WPD Preview: Bohemians vs City

WPD Preview: Bohemians vs City
Cork City FC Women return to SSE Airtricity Women’s Premier Division action this Saturday, June 10th at 3pm against Bohemian FC Women in Dalymount Park. The game is available to watch on LOITV. Robert Aungier caught up with an upbeat Danny Murphy ahead of the fixture. “After a positive perforce against DLR we’re going up to the game confident. If we perform to the level we did on Wednesday (away to Wexford Youths) and Saturday (home to DLR Waves) we can really cause teams some problems. We Just need to finish our chances, be a bit better in the final third but in terms of how we played and what we implemented throughout the game. It will hold to us if we keep developing and keep improving” “We are a young side we are going to make mistakes. We are still improving, and we are going to have weeks where we make mistakes but at the same time if we keep learning from these mistakes we have a real opportunity to do something special for the rest of the season both before and after the break.” One to watch on the Bohs team is goalkeeper Rachael Kelly. She has been featured on the team of the week five times so far this season. Kelly was nominated for the leagues May player of player of the month award. She also won Bohs player of the year award in 2022. The 21-year-old spent two seasons learning her trade as a backup for Shelbourne before moving to Bohs and establishing herself as the number 1 in 2022. I was there at the DLR vs Bohs stalemate and Kelly was certainly the most vocal player on the pitch that day. Also, in the Bohs squad this season is striker Sarah Rowe. She has played inter county football for Mayo in the past and professional Aussie rules for Collingwood AFL. The 27-year-old Ballina native has scored four goals so far this campaign. Bohs are currently 4th in the table after a recent run of good results. Since the reserve fixture in Turners cross on April 29th which Bohs won 3-1, they have gone on an impressive run. They have taken 11 from a possible 15 points conceding just two goals in the process. This run has not come without a small bit of luck as they were given a gift of a last-minute winner against Athlone Town due to a defensive mix up in a game broadcast live on TG4 on May 20th. They were also given a boost off the field last weekend when their scoreless draw against Shamrock Rovers set the new league attendance record of 1256. Robert Augnier
