BRADFORD City Women's first team travel to Durham Cestria hoping to translate their recent cup form into league points.

Last time out, the Bantams hit double figures at home to Thackley FC Ladies in a 10-2 West Riding County Cup victory.

On Sunday, they visit fifth-placed Durham Cestria, who haven’t played in almost a month, in the FA Women's National League Division One North.

City head north in bottom spot but the one league game they have won this season came in the corresponding fixture, when they overcame Durham 3-2 in their opening match.

Despite Durham’s lack of game-time over the Christmas and New Year period, Bradford boss Chris Hames is certainly not underestimating their opponents.

“We know they are going to be professional, we know they are going to play hard and we know they won't be taking this game lightly” he said.

“We know it is going to be a really tough game. But, we know it’s the perfect game to get a result and then build on going into future matches.”

Hames has only managed one game in the league since he took over in mid-November, which they lost 1-0 against Liverpool Feds at the start of December.

City were bottom of the table when the 27-year-old took over but Hames believes he can inspire a change of fortunes.

He said: “We are very aware of where we are in the table. We can't lie to ourselves about that. But what we have to do is turn it around and focus on ourselves as well as focus on quality.

“One thing I said as soon as I came in is ‘we can’t change the past but we can change the future’.

“I’m more than confident that with the remaining fixtures we have left, we will win more than we lose and shoot up that league and reach our targets.”
