At a glance
Aston Villa Women are back in FA Women’s Championship action against Charlton Athletic this weekend.
Gemma Davies’ team are shooting for a seventh straight win to maintain their unbeaten league season.
A 1-0 win away at Sheffield United in January saw Villa pick up where they left off before the winter break, and their lead at the top of the table is three points with a game in hand.
The team come into the match on the back of a 3-2 defeat to top tier Brighton in the FA Cup last weekend.
Opponents Charlton suffered a 4-0 loss against Super League giants Chelsea in the same competition.
The Addicks have endured a tough season and are currently bottom of the Championship after failing to win in their ten matches.
Head Coach Davies has almost a full squad to pick from for this weekend’s game.
Ella Franklin-Fraiture is the only long-term injury absentee after she broke her ankle earlier in the season.
A new pricing structure is in operation for Women’s games during the 2019/20 season, meaning fans will save money by buying online in advance of a fixture.

There are also changes for men’s Season Ticket Holders, who will need to claim their free ticket online ahead of any fixture.
If the free ticket has not been claimed, men’s Season Ticket Holders will be required to pay the On The Day price of £7 adults and £3 concessions.
“There are eight matches left to play and we’ve put ourselves in a good position so far, but there is a lot more work to be done this season.
“In this league you can never look further ahead than the next game, and we’re looking forward to welcoming Charlton to Boldmere.
“I believe they’re better than their league position suggests and that’s been shown by their draw against Sheffield United and general competitiveness so far. We’re expecting a tough game and we’ll need you support once again as we look to come out on top.”
