Durham Women will be back on home soil this weekend – as they welcome Sheffield United to Maiden Castle.
After suffering their first league defeat of the season last time out, the Wildcats will be looking to bounce back.
But they will be facing a strong Sheffield side who are among the best sides in the Championship.
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:
Currently third in the FA Women’s Championship, Sheffield United have a side packed with quality.
Led by Neil Redfearn, the Blades are in a fine vein of form and come to the North East full of confidence.
Katie Wilkinson scored in the side’s last outing as they beat Charlton Athletic and has netted 16 times already this season.
The striker is supported by Courtney Sweetman-Kirk, Bex Rayner, Jade Pennock and Mel Johnson in a superb attack.
At the other end, Leandra Little and Naomi Hartley offer a solid base from which to build.
