Preview: United Women v Villa at Old Trafford



Currently sat fifth in the WSL standings, Villa enter into the clash at Old Trafford having won their last two clashes against Liverpool and Reading.

Losing just once on the road so far this season, Ward’s side will no doubt be a tough nut to crack, having found the net twelve times during their opening seven domestic encounters.

Looking to build on a respectable 10th-placed finish last campaign, the Villans will hope to spoil the part at the Theatre of Dreams, with an excited crowd expected.


Suffering a penalty shootout defeat against the Lions at the start of October in the Conti Cup, Skinner’s side will hope to avenge our defeat in front our fans.

Having drawn 1-1 after full-time, with Daly’s goal cancelling out Parris’ opener, Villa emerged 4-3 victors in the shootout.

Facing off six times before, our opponents have failed to emerge victorious after 90 minutes on all occasions. We claimed a 5-0 success over the Villans last season, with Ella Toone (2), Martha Thomas, Lucy Staniforth and Katie Zelem all on target. Our reverse fixture ended 0-0.
