Head To Head: Caitlin Foord v Jenna Kingsley

The Westfield W-League returns in 2019 with a huge clash against the Newcastle Jets at Jubilee Stadium on Friday afternoon (kick off 5:20pm AEDT).

Leading their side’s respective lines, Caitlin Foord and Jenna Kingsley will be out to steer their squads to victory at Kogarah with nothing but goals on their minds.

Having played every minute of every match for the Sky Blues, and with Kingsley only subbed off late three times for her Jets side, the two forwards are well seasoned and primed for a huge clash as we enter the second half of the 2018/19 season.

Let’s take a look at the ‘Tale of the Tape’ between Caitlin Foord and Jenna Kingsley.

Foord's superior conversion rate and number of key passes make her a huge threat in Friday's clash.

While both have their names on the goalscoring charts this season, it’s Sky Blue star Caitlin Foord who comes out on top with her 42% conversion rate, highlighting the Westfield Matildas' lethality in front of goal.

Foord’s 22 key passes also shows her quality in the build up and the ability to create chances for her team mates, as evidenced by her two assists.
