BIG MATCH PREVIEW: Liverpool (H)
Durham Women are back on home soil this weekend as they welcome top tier Liverpool to New Ferens Park.
Fresh off back-to-back victories over Everton and Sheffield United, the Wildcats will be full of confidence ahead of what is sure to be a testing afternoon.
From travel to tickets, here's everything you need to know ahead of the game:
An ever-present in the top flight since the inception of the FA Women's Super League, Liverpool have become a real force in the women's game.
Back-to-back titles in 2013 and 2014 solidified the Reds' position at the top of the game and they have continued to impress in the top tier.
New under the guidance of Neil Redfearn, Liverpool will be keen to improve on a 5-0 defeat to Arsenal in their last outing.
And they certainly have the quality to do so, with Niamh Fahey a strong presence at the back and Courtney Sweetman-Kirk and Christie Murray providing plenty of firepower up top.
WE'VE MET BEFORE
The two teams actually met during pre-season, where Liverpool ran out 3-0 winners thanks to goals from Christie Murray, Laura Coombs and Jess Clarke.
Our last competitive meeting saw the game end in a 0-0 draw in the same competition last season, with the Reds then triumphant on penalties.
Speaking in his programme notes, manager Lee Sanders said: “They’ve got some quality players in their squad and we’ve watched their game against Arsenal.
"We’ll respect that, but these are fantastic games for us to play prior to really getting into the league. That’s what we’ll see it as.
"We’ll respect Liverpool but won’t fear them, and go in and play how we want to play and build on what we’ve been doing."
The match will be played at New Ferens Park (DH1 1GG)
