Bradford City reserves face double-chasing rivals Nottingham Forest at Rawdon Meadows in the Women’s Premier League (North) Reserve Cup semi-final tomorrow, while the first-team women host Newcastle United at Thackley.

Following a surprise 3-1 defeat at home to Preston, when Molly Sharpe scored for the Bantams, City can still push up the table with a win over United.

“Highest finish possible” is coach Steve Winterburn’s target and they could still come second or third.

In the West Riding County League, Bradford Park Avenue are battling it out with Keighley and Silsden for a fourth-place finish in the Premier Division.

A 12-1 win over bottom club Ossett Town, with goals from Sophie Mitchell (4), Sarah Huby (4), Annie Roberts (3) and Nic Chamberlain, lifted Avenue into that fourth spot but they play their final game next week and their district rivals have games in hand.

Brighouse Town Ladies (pictured) completed their season in the North East Regional Southern Division with a 3-2 win at Handsworth.

Sonni Sweeney got the winner as the champions finished their campaign unbeaten.
