The Charlton women’s team hope to take momentum from their first two games of the season into their home clash against Queens Park Rangers on Wednesday (1945 ko).

The Addicks have netted 17 goals in those two matches, including a 12-1 league win over Keynsham Town a week ago, but are wary of what promises to be a tough encounter at Sporting Club Thamesmead.

Goalkeeper Megen Lynch was pleased with what was a challenging run out last weekend against Swindon Town in the FA Women’s Premier League Cup Defining Round.

Although Charlton recorded a seemingly comfortable 5-2 win in the end, they had to come from two goals down against up-for-it opponents.

Lynch said: “I think what shocked us was that [Swindon] did actually come out and press us so high and so quickly and be so aggressive and we weren’t ready for it.

“I don’t think we played too badly, we just never put our chances away - in the first half we created about 10 chances and we put one away.

“It was a shock to say Swindon were better than Keynsham, who are in our league, which is a complement to them and their coaching staff.

“That was the toughest test we have had all pre-season and first two games. I hope we can take the momentum from this game into Wednesday’s game.”

Charlton will hope to cement their place as the early pacesetters in the FAWPL South with another win over newly promoted QPR.

The two sides met last season in the Capital Cup final, with the Addicks coming out on top – again fighting back a half-time deficit.

Lynch, then, knows what to expect from the Hoops, who have a number of experienced faces amongst their ranks.

“We played QPR last year and just beat them 2-1,” the stopper, who turns 23 on the day of the game, added, “so if they have made any additions it will be a very good feisty game, which will entertain everyone.

“There’s something about midweek games that everyone loves, no matter who you are. I think the girls would rather play games than train so to have three games in a week or so is good.

“I expect QPR to come straight at us. They always have a feistiness about them, they’re always aggressive and press high so to have Swindon do that to us on Sunday was good because it gets us a little but more prepared for Wednesday.”
