The westerners have already claimed the scalp of the defending league champions this season.

Tommy Hewitt says his Athlone Town team have to be ready for a "battle" in the Women's Premier Division tonight.

The Midlanders are at home to Galway in what Hewitt is describing as the club's seasonal derby match.

Athlone were held scoreless against DLR Waves last time out while Galway shocked fans with a 2-1 win over defending champions, Shelbourne.

Hewitt says their opponents will test them this evening:

Kick off at Athlone Town Stadium is set for 7.45pm.
