After Hull City Ladies’ match against Burnley Women away was cancelled, the Tigresses now play West Brom Women this Sunday at Haworth Park, 2 pm kick off.

Form

After securing a fantastic win against Sunderland Ladies, the Tigresses were beaten 2-1 against Huddersfield Town Women on a wet and windy Wednesday night at Haworth Park. Then Fylde Women sealed a 4-2 victory against HCL in a game of two halves.

Hull City Ladies responded twice after Fylde scored, Jo Symington levelled the scores four minutes after Emily Hollinshead scored Fylde’s first and a fantastic Emily Smith individual goal levelled the scoring again just seven minutes after Faye McCoy scored Fylde’s second but Jodie Redgrave and Jess Holbrook goals earned Fylde all three points.

West Brom have won two, drawn one lost two in their last five games and sit 5th in the FA Women’s National League. Last time out West Brom suffered a 3-2 loss against Stoke. Trina Greaves and Jess Davies found the net for West Brom but a Lizzie Steele brace and a goal from Ali Hall meant the visitors took all three points back to Staffordshire.

Last Outing

The last meeting between the two sides was the last match of the 2019/20 season before the season was expunged. Hull City Ladies went 2-1 up against a West Brom side who secured two places in finals this year, the County Cup Final and the National League Plate Final. A fantastic lob from Emily Smith and a 25-yarder goal from Harley Skinner got the Tigresses goals but goals from Keeley Davies, Evie Gallop, and Leigh Dugmore completed West Brom’s second-half comeback.

Ones to watch

Costello said, two weeks ago after the Fylde loss: “There are some many positives to take, one thing out of all it, is to look at the girls’ work rate, you cannot complain about the work rate last year I would have complained like mad.

Another positive was Aoife Brannigan who came up from the reserves, I called her last night at 10 pm to tell her can you come and play for the first team. She came in and I thought she played really well and I’ve said to her you can train with the first team because she needs to she was quality today she might go back to the reserves but she needs to step up and train for the first team.”

Last week’s player to watch was Captain Jo Symington, as the Tigresses didn’t play last week, this week’s player to watch is still Symington. Symington puts her body on the line, each week, and Tigresses will look to her for some leadership when they take on West Brom Women, this Sunday afternoon.
