Julia Weithofer is braced for battle as Durham Women prepare to welcome Sheffield United in the Continental Cup.
The winger starred in the last cup fixture against Coventry United, and has enjoyed her outings in the competition thus far.
“It’s been exciting,” she said.
“It’s been a good experience getting in with the club, because at first it’s kind of nerve-wracking!
“It’s hard to play teams back-to-back, so hopefully on Thursday we have a good performance and we can carry it out again on Sunday.
“It’s going to be a hard test, like every game.
“We can’t sit back against teams and we have to be ready for every game because every team is coming for points.
“It’s going to be a battle.”
