Watford FC Women head coach Clinton Lancaster has urged supporters to come out in their numbers for his side's match against Liverpool at Vicarage Road today.

As the Golden Girls continue their Championship campaign, the boss hopes that fans will take the opportunity to see them playing in the familiar surroundings of the Vic, as they look to make an impact following their promotion.

Today's match, which kicks off at 2pm, will be their first home game of the season and should be a good one, according to the coach.

“We hope that we can get as many fans down to our games as possible. We’ve got a few games at The Vic, the first game is Liverpool, on Saturday,” Lancaster told the club website.

“What a great game to have at home, and we hope to see plenty of fans at that one. Then whether we’re at Kings Langley, Vicarage Road, or away, fingers crossed we get as many fans to our games as possible and hopefully they enjoy the football that we’re going to be playing this season.”

Asthey get used to life in the second tier, the aim for Watford this season is staying in the division and building from there.

Lancaster believes his players are more than capable of achieving that goal.

“The aim is to do everything we can to stay in the league because we know it’s a strong league, we’re not setting the bar too high, but our expectations of the players are high,” he said.

“I’m sure and confident that if we play as well as I know we can then we can have a good season but of course the most important thing is we maintain our status in this Championship.”
