London City Lionesses travel to Durham’s Maiden Castle on the final weekend of play before the international break, with Carolina Morace’s squad hoping to secure their first away win of the season.
For all of the most-know details ahead of kick-off, read on.
WHEN AND WHERE:
The Pride travel to the North East for a midday kick-off on Sunday, with turnstiles opening 90 minutes earlier at Maiden Castle.
For the best matchday experience, supporters are advised to purchase their tickets from durhamwfc.com in advance.
Unfortunately, the match has not been selected for live broadcast by the FA Player.
However, live updates will be published across our social media accounts.
CAROLINA MORACE’S PREVIEW:
“I watched their last match, when they lost 9-1, and the scoreline didn’t really reflect the game. Durham are a team that we respect because they defend in a solid way by creating a compact defensive block,” said Morace when quizzed on the Wildcats.
“Sometimes there are days when everything goes the right way, the first two goals scored by Crystal Palace were hit into the exact spot where the goalkeeper couldn’t stop it. Again, we respect everyone in this league and we know that we have to play our best because we are trying to develop with every game that we play.”
DURHAM’S PLAYER TO WATCH:
American midfielder Dee Bradley will play an important role for Durham this weekend, sitting at the base of Lee Sanders’ midfield. The 27-year-old is known for her defensive tenacity and has played every minute of the campaign so far.
Bradley will be joined in midfield by wide threat Mollie Lambert, who has two goal contributions to start the season. The 25-year-old is highly regarded in the Barclays Women’s Championship and could be a difference-maker on Sunday.
The Wildcats won comprehensively on our last trip to Durham, sinking Nikita Runnacles’ squad 3-0 at the business end of the season.
NEXT HOME MATCH:
Charlton Athletic are the next squad in line to visit Princes Park, with the Addicks visiting Dartford on Sunday, 1 October.
Karren Hills’ side have taken two points from their first three matches, adding another layer of spice to what is already set to be a thrilling clash.
