FOR the third successive week in a row, Burton Albion Ladies are set to face Lye Town in the first round of the Birmingham Senior cup.

Having been called off the previous two weeks due to a waterlogged pitch, the Brewers are looking to pick up a much-needed victory after some improved performances in previous games.

Brewers manager James Billings says it is important trying to keep a routine going during the postponement of games;

“I wouldn’t say it unsettles them," he said. "When the games have been called off, we’ve managed to get an extra training session in where possible.

"When you’ve been working hard to put things in place for the weekends and the games are called off it is always very frustrating as we want to see the girls play."

With the movement of the Lye cup match, the Brewers league fixtures have also been rescheduled but Billings believes that the possible fixture congestion won’t affect his side's performance in the future.

“I don’t think it will directly affect the girl’s performance moving forward," said Billings. "My only concern with a backlog of games is picking up little knocks and niggles along the way.

"With having a small squad there’s always a chance that injuries can add up but this is where all the staff need to prepare the team in the best way possible.”

The Brewers league games against Lincoln City, Birmingham and West Midlands and The New Saints have all been moved to accommodate the Lye Town fixture.

Dates for the games have yet to have been set for the fixtures.
