The Charlton women’s team face Millwall Lionesses in a re-arranged FA Women’s Premier League Cup tie at Beckenham Town FC, Eden Park Avenue, Beckenham on Sunday (2pm KO).
An Addicks win will see them qualify for the second round from their group of five with one game to play, with four points from those two matches needed to secure top spot in the group.
Coming off a 4-1 loss away to league leaders Sunderland, manager Bill Long will be hoping to keep up Charlton’s run of cup wins going into the away game with Millwall then a home tie against Lewes.
The original tie was due to take place a fortnight ago but was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.
Previously, caretaker manager Long had said: “It’s a good game because the girls all know each other but, as far as I’m concerned, we are playing Millwall, it’s not about individual players or characters.
“It’s a local derby and I want to win. We’ll shake hands and smile because we all know each other but through 90 minutes we have to beat them, compete with them and do everything better than them.
“Millwall are a decent side, we know they have some good players and they should be confident because they are doing well. We have to knuckle down and make sure that we’re on our game.”
