Preview: Redcar Town Ladies vs Leeds United Women

FA Cup action on Sunday.

Leeds United Women start on the Road to Wembley with a trip to Redcar Town Ladies in the FA Cup Third Round qualifying on Sunday afternoon (2pm).

The side will be looking to keep up the form that has seen them top the Division One North table after nine games, but will be looking to get back to winning ways following a 5-5 draw at home to Durham Cestria a fortnight ago. 

A win for Dan O’Hearne’s side would book a place in the first round of the competition for the first time since season 2018-19.  

For the hosts, they currently find themselves in third place in the North East Regional League with a record of three wins and two defeats from their opening five league games. 

They were defeated 2-1 away at Hartlepool Women last time out in the league, but reached this stage of the competition after Boro Rangers withdrew in the previous round. This will be the first meeting between the two sides.  

Laura Bartup will be looking to add to her 13 goals following back to back hat-tricks in the win against FC United of Manchester and the draw against Durham Cestria.
