Match Preview: Sheffield FC Ladies v Watford

Hornets in action this weekend and will look to build on encouraging display in previous game.

It’s another away game for Watford FC Ladies this weekend as the Golden Girls travel to Dronfield to take on Sheffield FC.

Watford were last in action on March 31st and impressed despite falling to defeat against league leaders Doncaster Rovers Belles.

With eight matches remaining in the season, there’s still plenty of opportunities to pick up points and to build on that performance, starting this weekend.

A look at the opposition

League position: 8th

Record: 3-0-7

FA Women’s Cup: Fourth Round

Continental Tyres Cup: Third in Group One North

Last Five: LLLWL

Sheffield FC started the season strongly with two wins in their first three games, however they’ve struggled to get points on the board in recent months.

One area that’s been a concern has been the defensive side, with not a single clean sheet kept all season. Narrow defeats have also been a regular occurance recently, with five one goal defeats in their last eight games.

They were also on the right side of a slim margin of victory during that spell though, winning a seven-goal thriller against Tottenham Hotspur back in January.

Melissa Johnson netted a hat-trick that day and has impressed this season, scoring ten goals in all competitions.

Last time we met

The Hornets came out on top in the previous meeting, winning 2-0 at Kings Langley in the Spring Series.

Watford were out of the blocks quickly and took the lead after just four minutes thanks to Merrick Will’s strike.

It took longer than the length of some games for the crucial second goal to arrive, as Rinsola Babajide put matters beyond doubt in the 100th minute of the match.

Team: Fletcher, Poole, Nuttall, Neal, McKeag (Charles, 66), Maple (Petkova, 79), Babajide, Will, Puddefoot, Kerr, Cudone (Albert, 90+2)
