REVENGE is on the cards when Chris Holloway's Coventry City Ladies take on Manchester City Ladies in the only Premier League National Division fixture this Sunday.

Holloway is well aware that that a victory will put the Sky Blues above their fourth-placed rivals and potentially take them as high as second in the league.

The Citizens however have lost just once in the last six matches in all competitions and won the reverse tie earlier in the season thanks to a late header by Amanda Goodwin.

But the Holloway is only focusing on preparing his team for another tough game at the Bedworth Oval.

“The fact we have lost to them already doesn’t mean too much, because by 2pm on Sunday afternoon, it’s 11 against 11 and 0-0,” said Holloway.

“You have to respect all opposition and expect a really tough game, but also to make sure that you are up for the challenge first and foremost.

“I will speak to the staff regarding the previous games, but as I said, it starts at 0-0 and for both clubs there have been a fair few games since we last met."
