Crystal Palace Women's third season in the Women's Championship got off to a respectable start last weekend, with a 2-2 draw away at Charlton Athletic.
Next up for Dean Davenport's side are London City Lionesses. Previewing the game, the manager said: "... although not much has changed for them player-wise, they have brought in a new manager and backroom staff. They are one of the full-time teams in the league, so there won’t be any issues with a lack of match fitness.
"We know we need to start fully focused – last season, despite taking one point from our two games against them, on both occasions the performance was there and we fully deserved more from the two games."
