Manchester Derby matchday minus one!

The countdown to Saturday’s FA Women’s Super League crunch clash is edging ever closer, as City and United lock horns for the first time this season...

Throughout the week, the players and staff have spoken of the togetherness of the squad; the focus for this weekend’s crucial encounter.


Head Coach Gareth Taylor also revealed in his pre-match press conference he has no new injury concerns for the trip to Leigh Sports Village, asserting the players were in positive spirits ahead of ‘the perfect game’ to get our season back on track.

City hold the bragging rights in Manchester - triumphant with a 3-0 victory at the Academy Stadium back in February.

Whether Manchester will be Blue or Red come Saturday evening remains to be decided but the players are ready to give their all.
