BIG MATCH PREVIEW: Liverpool (H)

Durham Women face their final game of 2020 this weekend – as they welcome Liverpool to Maiden Castle.

After last week’s drama at Coventry, the Wildcats return to home soil against the Reds.

As per current government guidance, this fixture will be played behind closed doors.

Durham Women FC kindly ask all supporters to refrain from travelling to the ground, and to follow the game from home.

And ahead of the game, here’s everything you need to know – from stream details to social media coverage and more:


THE OPPOSITION

Rightfully pinpointed as one of the favourites for promotion at the start of the season, Liverpool have a squad packed with real quality.

Vicky Jepson can call upon a variety of options at both ends of the pitch, with former Durham stopper Rachael Laws a reliable presence between the sticks.

In front of her, Niamh Fahey brings some real experience to the backline – while Razza Roberts and Jade Bailey are two cultured and talented midfield players.

Then up top, the lively Rinsola Babajide is joined by the likes of Mel Lawley, Kirsty Linnett and Rachel Furness.

Liverpool have lost just once this season and remain firmly in the promotion picture.


WE’VE MET BEFORE

The two teams met on the opening day of the season, as Beth Hepple’s strike earned us a 1-1 draw at Prenton Park.

Our last meeting before this season came in last year’s Continental Tyres Cup – where we were defeated 3-1.
