After a disappointing result last Sunday, the Tigresses look to bounce back against league contenders Newcastle. Brilliant form recently from Newcastle, Sunday’s game should be a real test for Hull City Ladies but a win for the Tigresses in the teams last meeting should give the girls real confidence to take something from the game. Hull City Ladies are still sitting in 5th place, 6 points behind Barnsley in fourth but the Tigresses have a game in hand.
Last Time Out
A slow overall afternoon for Hull City Ladies, not many chances and the chances the Tigresses did have amounted to nothing a very slow first half with few chances created from either team but a fast break from Bradford and a good finish to give them the lead. A better overall performance in the second half creating many chances and unlucky not to get a goal or two.
In his post match interview, Chris Hames described the performance as ‘lacking in quality and decisiveness seen in previous weeks.’ Not a lot of chances created from the Tigresses during the first half, second half being a different story with the same result, very chances created but none ending in the Bradford net. Hitting the woodwork twice in quick succession, Chris stated ‘ we could play the game time and time again and it wouldn’t end 1-0’. He further added ‘it wasn’t
a terrible performance’ and seemed hopeful as he said the result was ‘not the end of the world’.

Ones to Watch
Captain Ellie Tanser received POTM last Sunday with her brilliant performance from midfield in the 1-0 loss to Bradford. A sweep of 3 consecutive POTM for midfield partnership of Ellie Tanser and Amy Pollock. A very frequent midfield domination from the pair getting the recognition it deserves. A goal in the last meeting against Newcastle for Ellie Tanser makes her this week’s player to watch in what should be a cracking game.
