The Lasses are preparing to visit table-topping Huddersfield Women at Stafflex Arena in a 2pm kick off, with the two sides are level on points after four games after recording three wins and a draw each.

Sunderland have defeated Fylde, West Brom and Hull in the league so far and have only dropped points against Wear-Tees rivals, Middlesbrough.

Huddersfield come into the game on the back of a 2-2 draw with Fylde, who Sunderland defeated 2-1 at the start of the month.

Bridget Galloway will be looking to build on her remarkable start to the season, having scored 7 goals in all competitions so far this campaign.

16-year-old Jessica Brown is also proving to be one to watch so far this season, with four goals in her debut season in senior football, including a brace against Newcastle United Women in the FA Women’s National League Cup.

Despite drawing their last game, Huddersfield will come into the game full of confidence following impressive 6-0 and 6-2 victories over Loughborough and Hull City respectively.

The Terriers also progressed to the next round of the National Women’s League Cup with a win over Nottingham Forest Ladies by four goals to three.

If recent form is anything to go by, you can expect a high scoring game, with plenty of free-flowing attacking football from both sides.
