Bill Long hopes the Charlton women’s team can take momentum from their impressive recent form into their clash with double Premier League champions Sunderland at Hetton Centre on Sunday (KO 1pm).

The Addicks travel to the North-East on a run of four wins in a row and are looking to become the first team to defeat the Mackems in any competition this season.


Charlton’s last four games have seen them score 25 goals and concede just four in two league and two cup victories and Long hopes they can take that winning mentality into the weekend’s match.


He said: “It will be a good test for the girls. We’ve won four on the bounce and we have beaten some good opposition. To put that confidence into a clash against top of the table is really good for us.


“It’s good to be challenged and it’s good to get your head down and really knuckle down and do the right things and you will get punished for your mistakes so we have to make sure we are sharp.


“Those last couple of [league] games were must wins but in this one, it would be nice to get a result but you are not devastated if you lose to the champions, as long as you put in a good performance.


“But I’m not thinking that way, I’m thinking we can go there and get a result, which is very do-able for us.”
