Kim Dixson is hoping for a double celebration this Sunday as she plays a record-breaking 100th league game for the Charlton women’s team against Coventry City.

The Addicks skipper hits her century of league matches for her childhood club, passing the current record set by former goalkeeper Pauline Cope.


But, after winning the London Cup and beating Aston Villa last week, Dixson is fully focused on getting the result against the Sky Blues and improving her side’s league position.


She said: “It will be a proud moment for me. It will be a massive achievement and I just can’t wait to get out – even Gemma Shepherd said I can have a penalty if we get one!


“Just getting three points will be a bigger thing for me though, to make it a good couple of weeks. If we get the win and go into the Kent Cup final we will have a good feeling around the whole team.


“Getting a win against Aston Villa was massive for us. Someone said in the changing room before the game, “every game is a cup final now” and that’s how we want to look at it.


“Everyone is looking forward for Sunday and, for me, it’s another one we need to win. They’re just below us and if we can keep winning we have a chance of getting fourth or fifth which is our aim.”


Coventry sit one place behind Charlton, but came out on top in the reverse fixture in the Midlands at the start if the season, winning 2-0.


Dixson believes the Addicks are capable of coming out victorious this time around, and moving towards the top half of the Premier League table.


“I don’t think they’re as strong as they were last year,” she added. “They are one of those teams we just can’t break down. They’re similar to Villa, they work hard - we just have to work harder.


“We played them in the first game of the season and played quite well but we just couldn’t score. Hopefully with a few good players in we will have a chance of winning.


“If we get the first goal we probably will win because I have all the confidence in the world in our goalkeepers and back four to keep a clean sheet.”
