Early team news 📋

Despite the busy fixture schedule, which sees us in action twice in less than 72 hours, the boss was upbeat when asked about the shape of his squad heading into the weekend.

City were boosted by the return of Steph Houghton to the substitute’s bench on Thursday evening, with the captain successfully recovering from an ankle injury.

However, January signings Poppy Pritchard and Laura Blindkilde Brown are cup tied, so unable to feature at Brisbane Road.

The team will have had one final training session at the City Football Academy on Saturday before travelling down, so here’s hoping that everyone’s come through unscathed.



It's Matchday 🙌

Hello and welcome to our Matchday Centre ahead of City's FA Cup quarter-final clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

Kick-off is set for 15:00 (UK), with Gareth Taylor's side hoping to bounce back from our slender Continental Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea against a Spurs side who pushed Arsenal all the way in their most recent fixture.

It promises to be another absorbing encounter, so stay tune!
