Huddersfield Town Women travel to Haworth Park to face Hull City for the first time this season.

The Town Women return to league action after booking their spot in the second cup final of the year with a win over their development team.

Hull City LFC are bottom of the FAWNL Premier Division North and looking like being relegated from the division. The Terriers are fifth in the league, having defeated Fylde in a thrilling match, before losing a tight match to top of the table Wolves.

Town Women can edge back up the table with a win against bottom of the league Hull City LFC. City have lost four of their last five league outings, and with relegation looming will want to save face and win against a high flying Huddersfield Town Women.

Town Women will be looking to get back to winning ways in the league, the narrow defeat to Wolves was a disappointment but they will try to bounce back this weekend.

Hull City defeated their relegation rivals Sheffield FC, keeping a clean sheet in the process. Fylde narrowly defeated City, one goal giving the three points to the Lancashire side.

Hull City were put through the wringer in their last game out against Burnley. The Lancastrian side put seven beyond the East Yorkshire Club.

Hull will be out to try and win. Although already relegated, a win against a current top six side will at least be a boost to confidence. City have struggled this season and aim to go out with some pride.

LAST TIME OUT

The teams have not met yet this season, this match is rescheduled from January, when the match was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. However, last season the Terriers took home all three points. Huddersfield Town Women clinched a close match 2-1 on a Wet Wednesday to start an unbeaten run.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Laura Elford scored a hat trick against Flyde and will be looking for more. As part of the team that lost to Wolves, and on the bench for the game against the Town Women Devs Elford should be in a prime position to net.

For Hull City LFC Rachael Ackroyd will be one to watch. The City striker came close several times in the match against Flyde, so the Terriers will need to be on their guard to ensure Ackroyd doesn’t find the back of the net.

Assistant Manager Kamran on playing bottom of the league Hull City

League positions are not of importance when coming up against any opposition at this level. We know on their day, any team stands a chance of scoring and picking up points. Complacency is never an issue with this group of players. The consistency and small actions we do on a weekly basis will hopefully shine through n the final month of the season.

On the Pitch conditions

The pitch and conditions are always a factor when playing away from home. Every team that has visited Haworth Park has had to overcome this. We pride ourselves on overcoming any obstacle that comes our way. We most certainly need to dig in and dig deep if we want the three points on Sunday.

Kick off is Sunday 10th April at 14.00 at the Haworth Park. Can’t make the game? As always, online coverage of the match will be available across all HTWFC channels including minute-by-minute updates on our Twitter @HTAFCWomen plus match build up on our Instagram. Highlights will also be released following the game for fans to catch up on the action.
