BIG MATCH PREVIEW: Sheffield United (A)

The fixtures keep on coming thick and fast for Durham Women – who travel to Sheffield United this weekend.

The Wildcats will travel to The Technique Stadium to face one of the favourites for promotion this season, and will face arguably their sternest test of the season so far against Neil Redfearn’s side.

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

THE OPPOSITION

Many people’s title favourites this season, Sheffield United have started the campaign in impressive form and currently sit second in the Championship.

Neil Redfearn has a squad packed with quality, with Leandra Little and Naomi Hartley providing a watertight backline, while at the other end of the pitch Katie Wilkinson, Jade Pennock, Mel Johnson and Courtney Sweetman-Kirk are a fearsome frontline.

The Blades are yet to lose on home soil in the league this season and are the division’s top scorers – while also having the meanest defence.


WE’VE MET BEFORE

Our last league meeting with Sheffield United came last season as we were beaten away from home, losing 1-0 to Aimee Palmer’s long-range strike in the second half.
