PREPARED FOR BATTLE: The Strikers' Georgia Morgan will line up with her fellow teammates in a clash against Preston Lions on Sunday.

Ballarat Eureka Strikers look to continue their improved form against the eighth-placed Preston Lions with the teams set to meet in a Football Federation Victoria’s women’s state league one north-west clash in Reservoir on Sunday.

The previous time the two teams met it was a close match with the Lions winning 1-0 after a late goal in the final 10 minutes.

But the Strikers have been working hard on attacking the ball in the 18-yard box in training, which has let the team down in previous games.

The Strikers are coming off a competitive display against Keilor Park.

Georgia Morgan, Claire Demuth, Alannah Stevens, Hannah Sawkins, Vanessa Yung, Kassy Stabb (C), Tamsyn Smith, Alysha Reisacher, Kate Lyons (GK), Sarah Dagliesh, Molly Esmonde, Lisie Dodds, Eliza Clayworth, Natalie Barbara.
