After a short hiatus, due to the national lock-down in November, and the Tigresses postponed game on Sunday vs Loughborough, Hull City Ladies are back in action on Sunday against Sheffield FC, at Haworth Park.

It’s been 57 days since Hull City Ladies’ last game against Nottingham Forest and 64 days since our last game at Haworth Park but the Tigresses are aiming to secure victory in the final game of 2020.

We are also delighted to confirm that we can allow fans into Haworth Park for Sunday’s game! Tickets are limited so get yours today, we have policies & procedures to keep everyone safe!

Form

Hull City Ladies have played 6 games, winning one, drawing two and losing three. Read more about the season so far here!

Sheffield have played eight games, winning one and losing seven. Last week, Sheffield were beaten 8-1 by Fylde. Sheffield then announced the departure of four players, Elizabeth Hobson, Paige Crossman, Gina Camfield and Lisa Giampalma all left the Club.

Hull City Ladies earned a hard fought 2-2 draw against Nottingham Forest Women last time out, despite conceding twice in stoppage time, under the circumstances it was still a fantastic and spirited Tigress performance.

It was a thrilling match at Eastwood Football Club, goals from Emily Smith and Rebecca Beech put the Tigresses two goals up, but goals from Annabel McKechnie and Rosie Axxten clinched a draw for Forest.

We were absolutely class today, the best we’ve played, better then we played against Middlesbrough and Sunderland, that was a very good performance,” said Adi Costello.

Last Outing

The last outing between the two sides was 438 days ago, Sheffield clinched a 2-1 victory. In a scrappy affair, the Tigresses opened the scoring through Helen Lynskey, however, two late goals from Keeley Goodwin and Charlie Griffen sealed all three points for Sheffield.

One To Watch:

Costello said (after Middlesbrough): “Massive belief from the girls that unlike when I took over if we would have gone 1-0/2-0 down that would have been it, but now there’s a massive belief in the girls that until the final whistle goes we can score as we saw there, we were pushing for that winner.

Costello said (after Sunderland): “They’re superb, they have fantastic team spirit and are a fantastic team. One thing we try to get across is the, Andy Paul and even the young lads they are apart of the management is that the girls must believe, believe in what we’re telling them, believe in themselves and believe in their ability, they’re not poor players we just need to find a system that suits them and I think we’ve found one.

Last weeks one to watch was the full team, however, because the game was postponed, this weeks one to watch, will again be the full team. The team have shown massive commitment throughout this season and have improved game on game. Although, the Tigresses have only won one this season, the manner of the performances have been pleasing, as the players learn and improve week by week.

The Tigresses have secured two fantastic hard fought draws this season and there has been positives to take from every game this season. We look forward to 2021, to celebrate Hull City Ladies 20th year anniversary and to hopefully play football without no disruptions.
