Huddersfield Town Women boss Glen Preston says his side will be up for the fight this Sunday as they embark on another cup journey which they hope will end in silverware.
Having already made one cup final this season, taking on Southampton in the FA Women’s National League Cup decider on April 24, Preston and his team will be hoping to progress to the County Cup final this season too. That journey begins on Sunday (March 20) as they take on Doncaster Rovers Belles.
The Terriers will be looking to bounce back and gain a victory after a disappointing 3-0 defeat in the league to promotion-chasing Derby County.
On the County Cup game Preston said: “As a collective we all demand a very high standard from each other. We know we can do better so it’s back to training and preparing for our County Cup fixture. We all spoke after the game and are eager for next Sunday where we will be fighting for some silverware.”
In the Terriers’ defeat at the weekend it was Sophie Domingo and a Ellie Gilliatt brace which gave the Rams the win.
On that loss Preston added: “We came away from the game conceding three goals but felt like it was a game of big moments.
“Overall the difference in the two teams wasn’t that far apart. The first goal coming just before half-time changed the outlook going into the changing rooms.
“The start of the second half we thought we dominated and came out with a real fight about us.
“Then one moment from one player and they score the second goal which takes the life out of us. We come away knowing we need to be better but also can’t be too harsh on ourselves.”
Huddersfield Town Women FC v Doncaster Belles is at the Stafflex Arena on Sunday March 20 (1.00)
