Match Previews

United Women v London Bees - preview

18 April 2019

Sheffield United's women's team are back home on Saturday evening with Carla Ward's side looking for a fifth consecutive victory against London Bees.

Since the last home match against Crystal Palace, the Blades have recorded three successive 2-1 victories on the road at Tottenham, Leicester and Durham respectively.

The results leave Ward and her team in the top half, saw Maddy Cusack and Jade Pennock - the latter has scored in our last four games - nominated for player of the month and Ward herself take home the manager of the month award for March.

The most recent victory was perhaps the most impressive of them all. Durham had only lost once all season, beating Manchester United 3-1 at New Ferens Park and going down just 1-0 in their recent FA Cup quarter-final with holders Chelsea.

It means United's 2-1 win there on Sunday was all the more momentous as it was deserved. Goals from Danielle Cox and another for Pennock put the side 2-0 up before Beth Hepple's strike halved the deficit.

This weekend's opponents ran out 2-0 winners when the sides last met last year at The Hive, but the fortunes for both have flipped ever since.

While United have won four on the bounce, Bees are currently on a run of five consecutive defeats as they look to steady the ship after the departure of manager Luke Swindlehurst.

England legend Rachel Yankey has taken over the reins but the team haven't picked up a point in the league since the start of February.

They still sit sixth in the league though, four points with United and having played a game more, a win for Ward and her team again on Saturday would go a long way to securing fifth in the league, with Aston Villa the only side realistically who could push them back into the bottom half should three points be secured at the weekend.

Match Reports

United Women 0-4 Manchester United - report

20 February 2019

United's women's team endured a tough night at home to promotion favourites Manchester United but never disgraced themselves against the recent Continental Cup semi-finalists.

Carla Ward had to make one enforced change to her side with Ebony Salmon ineligible while there were places on the bench for several development team players with a whole host of first team players unavailable.

Unfortunately, the Blades couldn't have got off to a worse start. A corner inside the opening 20 seconds was taken short to Katie Zelem, the midfielder wasn't closed down and therefore had the time to curl home the opener within a minute.

It left Ward's side with a mountain to climb against a team which has lost just once all season but the Blades held their own for the next 25 minutes and restricted Casey Stoney's side to half chances.

A moment of solo quality from Lauren James put the visitors 2-0 up just before the half hour mark before a more than dubious penalty led to the third just before half-time.

It looked like Danielle Cox had made a brilliant tackle to deny James, but the referee pointed to the spot and Ella Toone stepped up to make it 3-0.

The hosts though competed much better and ensured the score remained respectable after the break.

Chloe Dixon and Alethea Paul both attempted efforts from range but United were never really able to test Siobhan Chamberlain.

A fourth came in the early stages of the second half when Toone turned provider to tee up the in-form Mollie Green for a close range header and while Stoney's side hit the crossbar in stoppage time, the Blades did well to restrict them to four during a demanding evening at Legacy Park.

Blades: Davies, S. Barker, Tierney, Pennock, Cox, Gilliatt, Rayner, Paul, Dixon, Cusack, Sarri (H. Barker 69).
Unused: Joyce, Hartley, B. Marsden.
