Women’s football: Sunderland face Derby in FA Cup

Have your say

SUNDERLAND Women play their rearranged FA Cup fourth round clash at Derby tomorrow.

The game was postponed last week because of a waterlogged pitch.

The winners of the game will be at home to Super League side Lincoln the following Sunday.

England Women, meanwhile, lost 2-0 to Scotland in the Cyprus Cup yesterday, with the goals coming from Arsenal Ladies duo Jennifer Beattie and Kim Little.

Hope Powell made eight changes from the starting 11 that beat Italy 2-0 on Wednesday and England must now re-group for the final group game against Canada on Monday.

Wearsider Jill Scott played the full game and went close to scoring with a header only to be denied by goalkeeper Shannon Lynn.

Steph Houghton, like Scott a former Sunderland player, was on the bench after impressing in the victory over the Italians.
