Chichester City Ladies assistant manager Lee Hurrell is urging his side to “spoil the party” as his table-topping team head to promotion rivals Coventry United.
The Green and White Army make the long trip to the Midlands with a five point lead over Cov at the top of the FA Women’s National League South, albeit having played three games more.
With the season starting to draw to a close, Chi know that three points at their closest rivals could set them up for a title winning season.
But first Chi must end a hoodoo against their Midlands rivals and end their undefeated run in the league.
Despite the match being brought forward a fortnight by the league, the assistant boss believes his side go into the game full of confidence after defeating MK Dons 5-2 last weekend.
Hurrell said: “We need to take them [games] one week a time. We know what to expect from Cov as we have played them twice already, both times down here where they have beaten us.
“It will be good to spoil the party just like they have done it to us twice already.”
After falling behind to a debatable penalty, goals from Molly Clark, Lauren Cheshire, Rebecca Barron and a brace from Sara Tubby sealed the win against the Dons.
Hurrell said: “The desire to get the result was there from the start to the end.”
