PREVIEW: Bristol City v Manchester United

Bristol City and Manchester United go into this weekend’s meeting at Twerton Park desperate to secure three points for very different reasons.

The hosts have just two games to save their top flight status and are a point from safety while visitors Manchester United need a win to possibly keen their slim European qualification hopes alive, although it won’t be enough if Arsenal win at Everton.

Bristol City manager Matt Beard has called upon his side to carry the momentum from the second half of last weekend’s 2-2 draw with Aston Villa into their latest fixture. The Robins came back from two goals down to rescue a point against Aston Villa at the death. Beard continues to be without long term absentees Jas Matthews and Megan Wynne.

Manchester United travel to Bath on the back of a 4-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur last weekend. Manager Casey Stoney is yet to make a final assessment of the fitness of her squad, however, minutes could be offered to fit-again pair Leah Galton and Alessia Russo. Tobin Heath, Ivana Fuso and Hayley Ladd remain sidelined and will not play again this season.

The Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture between Bristol City and Manchester United is scheduled to kick-off at 2pm on Sunday afternoon and will be available for fans to stream live on the FA Player.
