Plymouth Argyle Ladies cannot wait to return to action against QPR

PLYMOUTH Argyle Ladies’ players are champing at the bit to get back into action on Sunday when they take on Queens Park Rangers in a National League Southern Premier Division match at Coach Road, Newton Abbot (2pm).

It will be the Pilgrims’ first game since they beat Watford 3-2 on January 20.

At one point it looked like they might have to wait until March to play again but the QPR was rearranged so they could get a fixture in this month.

Argyle beat QPR 3-2 away, but had to rely on a late Zoe Cunningham goal to clinch all three points after Helen Bleazard had given them a 2-0 lead.

Although the Londoners are second-from- bottom of the division and without a victory yet, Argyle will not be taking them lightly, especially as Rangers did earn a 1-1 draw with high-flying Watford in their last game.

QPR have also played four times since Argyle last pulled on their kit so fitness could be a factor.

However, the break has allowed the Pilgrims to get over mid-season injuries and knocks.

“We have a clean bill of health going into the match,” said Argyle joint manager Trevor Rodd.

There was good news this week for last season’s top striker Natasha Knapman (pictured top), who has been out of action since last September.

“Tash finally put her boots on at training on Wednesday,” said Rodd. “I did 20 minutes with her doing some ball manipulation and passing and all looks good.”

Argyle squad: Lindsay Rogers, Mollie Taylor, Leah Burridge, Ebony Dover, Darcey Hepworth, Katie Middleton, Stephanie Beck, Rebecca Dandridge, Jessie Jones, Kayley Lane, Amber Pollock, Faye Ivall, Panagiota Papaioannou, Helen Bleazard.
