Huddersfield Town Women FC are hoping it will be third time lucky – in more ways than one – when they take on local rivals Brighouse Town for a place in the semi-finals of the FA Women’s National League Cup.
The Terriers make the short trip to the Yorkshire Payments Stadium on Wednesday February 23 (7.45) for a quarter-final clash that has already been postponed twice.
Brighouse head into this game knowing they beat the Terriers last time out. On a wild and windy night, an unfortunate own goal by Paige Crossman was the only difference between the sides.
Town also took on Brighouse earlier in the season in a midweek kick off at the Stafflex Arena back in August. In an end-to-end game Town took the lead late on with a Britt Sanderson strike, before a late equaliser from Drew Greene meant the points were shared.
Manager Glen Preston has done his homework and said: “We want to put right what we felt went wrong in the last game. We have evaluated Brighouse extensively and we have a much better idea of their style, strengths and vulnerabilities.”
