Match Preview : Bradford City Women vs Newcastle United Women


It is the long awaited return of the FAWNL at the Mitton Group Stadium in Eccleshill as Bradford City Women finally have a league game at home. It has been a very long time since the last home league game which was moved to Valley Parade back in September 2021, as City took on Leeds United in the Yorkshire Derby and walked away 1-0 winners. With it being a while since they have been at home in the competition it is bound to be an exciting game especially with how the team have progressed lately and how well the visitors Newcastle United are doing in their season so far. 

The visitors Newcastle United Women are currently sitting second in the league table after winning 9 of their 11 games so far and going into this game they are just 2 points of 1st place Liverpool Feds, it is safe to say they are going to be giving it their all this weekend to edge even closer to that top spot. Having won their last 5 matches they are definitely a strong side in the league and the current run of form is definitely going to contribute to a very interesting game on Sunday. 

Bradford are currently sitting 10th in the league but with having only played 8 league games so far this season they have plenty of games in hand to try catch up to those teams around them. We have definitely seen the team progress over recent months and have put in some great performances in the County Cup but can they keep momentum moving into the league? When you look at their last 5 games you can see the progress that is being made with 2 wins out of five and 1 draw, the team are more than capable of getting the points out of the game it is just going to be a case of how much they want to fight for them against the second place side. 

With the games in hand on those teams around them it is vital that City take every chance they can to take home as many points as possible to make those games count and see themselves progress up the table and away from the relegation zone. Newcastle will be coming to Bradford full of confidence but can City cause an upset?

If you are local to Bradford this weekend why not head to the Mitton Group Stadium in Eccleshill to come watch was has the makings of being a very interesting game of football. We know we wouldn't want to spend our Sunday afternoon any other way.
