BIG MATCH PREVIEW: Blackburn Rovers (A)

Durham Women turn their attentions back to the FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup this weekend – with a visit to Blackburn Rovers.

The Wildcats kicked-off the group stages of the competition with a comfortable win over Aston Villa and can retain their place at the top of the group with a victory at Bamber Bridge.

But buoyed by a win when the two sides met last weekend, Blackburn will be keen to keep building momentum.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the fixture:

THE OPPOSITION
