Preview: Bradford City Women vs Leeds United Women

West Yorkshire derby action at Valley Parade.


Leeds United Women return to action on Tuesday night (7:45pm) with a local derby away at Bradford City, in a game that is being staged at Valley Parade.

The Whites go into the match having won their last four league games, with the most recent coming on Sunday where Dan O’Hearne’s side defeated Chester Le Street Ladies 3-1 at the Global Stadium in Tadcaster.

Bradford, who were without a game at the weekend, currently sit in 10th place with a record of one win, one draw and three losses from their opening five league games. Their most recent league encounter was a 1-1 draw at home Barnsley.

Leeds are currently in second place in the league table, level on points with Liverpool Feds, but trailing the Merseyside outfit by just the one on goal difference.

A win would take the Whites back to the top of the table, as Feds are not back in action until they face Bradford themselves at the weekend.

The Bantams will be aiming to climb up the table, knowing a win on Tuesday evening could see them go as high as sixth depending on results elsewhere.

The hosts have scored in every league match they have played so far this season, but they will be disappointed not to have backed up that impressive record at the other end, as they are yet to keep a single clean sheet up to now.

From their six league matches, O’Hearne’s side have kept clean sheets on four occasions, whilst matching the record of their upcoming opponents by also finding the net in every game played.

What has Dan O’Hearne said, ahead of the match?

"All the players are looking forward to playing at Valley Parade. It’ll be a tough game, they will want to make it hard on their own ground. For us it’s not about the occasion, it’s getting the three points. They are all tough games in this league, we need to keep the momentum going now.”
