Watch Wolves Women’s play-off final live on the BBC

One of the biggest single matches in the history of Wolves Women is set to be shown live on the BBC as Dan McNamara’s side face Southampton for the opportunity to reach the Women’s Championship this weekend.

Wolves take on Saints in the FAWNL Championship play-off final from 3pm on Saturday at Stockport County’s Edgeley Park.

BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website will stream the match live from 2.50pm – the first time a showpiece match from the third tier of the women’s game has been shown live by the national broadcaster.

Despite winning the FAWNL Northern Premier Division, Wolves will have to overcome Southern champions Southampton for the opportunity to play second tier football next season.

Both sides dominated their respective divisions, losing just one league game each, with Wolves also tasting cup glory by overcoming West Bromwich Albion in the Birmingham County Cup.

Carol West, chair of the Women's National League, said: “We're delighted to have agreed a deal with the BBC to showcase the centrepiece of our competition.

“With both teams in such good form the final promises to be a showcase event.”

There will also be extended build-up to the match live on Wolves TVYouTube and the Wolves App, as Mikey Burrows and Claire Hakeman host a special Matchday Live Extra.

Wolves TV presenter Gemma Frith will also be presenting from Edgeley Park on Wolves’ social media accounts, @Wolves on Instagram and Twitter, as well as gaining all the immediate reaction post-match.
