Huddersfield Town Women return to league action this weekend. After the tight victory over Doncaster Rovers Belles, the Women Terriers have made it to the semi final of the Sheffield & Hallamshire County Cup. Their fourth round match was a walkover for Town Women as Sheffield United Women FC Seconds were unable to take part, so the match was awarded to Huddersfield Town Women.

After a disappointing away match to Derby County, where the Women Terriers suffered their first league defeat since md January, the Huddersfield Town Women will be looking to bounce back.

West Bromwich Albion have lost their last four league matches. The female Baggies are eighth in the league, and nine points behind Town Women. The Women Terriers also have a game in hand on the Baggies.

The Terrier Women will be looking to get back to winning ways in the league. Sitting in fifth place with 13 points between them and the top spot, Huddersfield Town Women will want to put right what went wrong against Derby.

Last time the two sides met was at the Central Ground in Sutton Coldfield. The Terrier Women couldn’t have got off to a better start, with Laura Elford netting within seconds of the kick off. The opposition equalised just after the quarter hour mark, but Huddersfield Town Women struck again in the 40th minute to regain the lead.

The second half saw the Women Terriers pile on the pressure, and it eventually paid off when Serena Fletcher put the game beyond doubt. Huddersfield Town Women clamed all three points, and will be looking for a repeat on Sunday.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Georgia Marshall was stirling in defence last time out. Marshall also had a super game last weekend against Doncaster. The defender will be out to repeat the performace she put in last week, and also against West Brom away from home.

Keep an eye out Falone Sumaili too. The striker made her first team debut last weekend from Huddersfield Town devs. Sumaili will be itching to get in on the action and the Burundian looked to fit right in.

Assistant Manager Kamran spoke about the match

We’re at the business end of the season now. Games come thick and fast, so it’s always a quick turnaround.

The group have come together and grown week by week, game by game. There is always a cautious approach to players welfare as we want everyone firing on all cyclinders consistently.

West Brom is another challenge for us, which we cannot under estimate. We need to be at our best to come out of Sunday with three points
