BRADFORD City Women travel to Hull City on Sunday, hoping to keep up the positive momentum that saw them run fifth-placed Derby County close last weekend, losing 2-1 with a 93rd minute goal when they looked set to claim their first point of the season.

The Bantams’ fixture at home to the all-conquering Blackburn Rovers side was postponed on Wednesday as the poor weather took its toll on the Eccleshill United pitch, so coach Luke Norris will be hoping his side will be able to carry last Sunday’s fighting spirit into this game.

Hull City are currently ninth, level on points with Nottingham Forest, but with a better goal difference thanks to last weekend’s home win to Huddersfield Town.

The Tigresses were held to a 3-3 draw by second-bottom Doncaster Rovers Belles on Wednesday night.

The young Bradford City team is looking more settled under manager Steve Winterburn, goalkeeping coach Dan Nicol and Norris, who has stepped in to cover for Winterburn who is still taking a break for personal reasons.

After a difficult season the building blocks are in place to ensure that if Bradford are relegated, they won’t be down for long.

The club’s committee, players and staff are already putting plans in place to make sure 2019/20 is a season of stability and growth following the recent turmoil.

Following the match at Hull, three of City’s final four games are at home, including relegation rivals Doncaster on March 31.

After taking charge of his first senior game last Sunday, Norris said: "The desire and work rate of the players last Sunday showed how committed they are to the club. Now we need to focus on the positives and take them into future matches."

Bradford City’s Under-18s also face a big game this weekend, as they host local rivals Leeds United at Rawdon Meadows today (10am).
