PREVIEW: Birmingham City v Manchester United

Manchester United will be hoping to put their patchy form behind them when they travel to the SportNation.bet Stadium to take on improving Birmingham City on Sunday afternoon.

Casey Stoney’s side have lost two and won two of their last four FA Women’s Super League matches, both of their defeats coming on the road at Chelsea and West Ham United respectively.

United’s latest away fixture comes at Birmingham City on Sunday. Marta Tejedor’s side suffered a difficult start to the season but positive recent results against Tottenham Hotspur and Bristol City leaves them unbeaten in two and five points clear of the dreaded drop zone in the FA Women’s Super League table.

The two sides met for the first time ever on Wednesday evening when they competed in their final group match in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup at the SportNation.bet Stadium in Solihull. On that occasion, Manchester United took a first minute lead courtesy of an error by home keeper Alex Brooks before Jane Ross’ goal gave Stoney’s side a 2-0 advantage. Abbie Grant pulled a goal back for the hosts before half-time but United went on to win the match 3-1 with Ella Toone netting their third in second half injury time.

Sunday’s meeting will kick-off at 2pm and admission will be available on the gate.
