PRE-MATCH BRIEF: ALBION V LONDON BEES

Brighton & Hove Albion host London Bees on Sunday for the first FA WSL 2 game at Culver Road this year, with kick-off at 2pm.

Albion's last home game in the league came back in November 2017, when Kirsty Barton scored in a 1-0 win over Sheffield FC. 

Since that game, the Seagulls have maintained their impressive start in FA WSL 2 and currently occupy fourth place in the table.

Both teams will be looking to get back to winning ways after defeats in the SSE Women's FA Cup last weekend, as Albion lost out to Manchester City and London Bees fell to defeat against Chelsea.
