Bradford City women target Forest in FA Cup

First published in Bantams by

Bradford City are finding themselves thwarted by the weather in their bid to secure promotion from the Northern Women’s Combination.

Their postponed FA Women’s Cup second-round tie at Nottingham Forest has been rescheduled for this Sunday – leaving them now ten points adrift of leaders Chorley, albeit with three games in hand.

Huddersfield Town did get their tie at Middlesbrough played but they never recovered from a 3-0 interval deficit and eventually lost 4-1.

Town’s next outing is at home to Leeds City Vixens this weekend as they look to consolidate their mid-table Northern Combination position.

If City manage to overcome Forest, they will face Sheffield United Community in the next round, while Leeds United enter the fray with a third-round tie against West Ham.

In the North East Regional League Southern Division, the City A team face a reunion of sorts.

Kirklees, who had former City players Yasmin Ayub and Sonya Smith-Moore on target in their 5-2 defeat at the hands of Doncaster Belles Reserves, are the visitors to Rawdon Meadows in a game neither side can really afford to lose.

Keighley Oaks are fourth from bottom after a 7-1 defeat at Malet Lambert and, with Ossett Albion losing 2-1 at Wetherby to remain bottom, only two points now separate Albion from sixth-placed City A.

Julie Richardson was on target for Guiseley in their 2-1 defeat at York in the Premier Division and the Nethermoor outfit will hope for better at Hull City this weekend as they look to hold on to their top-flight status.

Bradford Park Avenue are desperate to get another West Riding League game under their belt after a string of postponements has left them without a game since October.

Pontefract Sports & Social are their scheduled Premier Division hosts on Sunday, while Silsden are at Hebden Royd in Division One.

In Division Three, Cleckheaton lost their derby clash with Dewsbury Rangers 3-0 and now travel to Crossley, while Dewsbury entertain Oulton.
