Gillingham Ladies face Coventry City Ladies in a top versus second title-decider on Sunday.

With the Ryman League Cup and Kent Cup already secured, Gillingham will complete a treble if they can achieve a win at Chatham Town's Maidstone Road.

Gills manager James Marrs is hoping for a bumper crowd to cheer the ladies on as they chase the FA Women’s Premier League, Southern Division title.

Marrs said: “The girls have worked so hard this season and if we can get a half-decent crowd, then that would be great. Hopefully as many people as possible can come along and watch.”

Gillingham are in pole position ahead of the match, which is their last of the season. They sit four points clear of Coventry, who will still have one more game to play.

“It’s going to be an open game and full of attacking football,” said Marrs. “Coventry have to win or they will be out of the title race.”

In a bid to attract extra fans, there will be free entry to under-16s and the club are also encouraging players of other junior girls’ teams to come along in their own team’s colours.

Adult tickets cost £3 and kick-off is at 2pm.
