Charlton Athletic and Sheffield United will be hoping to return to winning ways in the FA Women’s Championship when the pair meet at The Oakwood tomorrow afternoon.
The Addicks are winless in four in the league while Sheffield United’s promotion hopes have been dented by recent 1-0 defeats to Liverpool and Durham.
Riteesh Mishra’s Charlton Athletic side should go into their latest league fixture with plenty of confidence after recording one of their best results of the season so far last time out. The Addicks were agonisingly close to collecting three points at Durham but conceded at the death and had to be content with a point after recording a 1-1 draw. It is fair to say that few FA Women’s Championship sides will come away with anything from the North East this season though.
Charlton Athletic suffered their second consecutive 4-0 defeat in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup in midweek as they went down to West Ham United, however, the South East Londoners were placed in a very tough group alongside three top tier sides.
Sheffield United have taken just four points from their last four league matches. The Blades have failed to score in three of those games which is hugely surprising given the level of attacking talent available to head coach Neil Redfearn. The South Yorkshire side did rediscover their goalscoring touch in a 4-0 FA Women’s Continental League Cup victory at Coventry United in midweek and head coach Redfearn will be hoping to now see his side kick-on.
Charlton Athletic’s FA Women’s Championship fixture against Sheffield United kicks-off at 2pm on Sunday afternoon. At this stage, no plans have been revealed to broadcast the game live but highlights are likely to be made available on the FA Player.
