Kim Dixson hopes the Charlton women’s team can end this season on a good note, as they go into the final two games starting on Wednesday (7.45pm) against league leaders Watford.
The Addicks end the campaign with two home matches at Thamesmead Town knowing wins from both matches will give them a great chance of a top half position in the Premier League.
Charlton met Watford for the first time in the league a week and a half ago, with the Hertfordshire side coming out on top with a 3-0 win despite a good performance by the Addicks.
However, the south-east Londoners were victors back in January when the two teams met in the League Cup, thanks to a 120th minute Gemma Shepherd strike.
Although she will not be fit for the game, skipper Dixson hopes her side can put in another shift, saying: “Obviously we need to finish on a good note.
“We have had an up and down season, a bit of a rollercoaster, but if we can finish with a couple of good performances as well as results it will be good for next season and pushing forward.
“I thought the girls did well [in their 3-0 defeat to Watford]. It wasn’t a one-sided game and I think the scoreline flattered them a little bit.
“We just need to take our chances when we get them. We gave away some silly goals as well and it’s always the same. We should score more from set pieces; we just need to concentrate more in those situations.”
Admission to the game is £2 for adults and £1 for U16’s and senior citizens. For Charlton & Thamesmead Town season ticket holders it’s free.
Charlton Womens & Girls players get in free if they wear their club tracksuit & 1 adult accompanying a junior player get in free too.
