Match Preview| York City Ladies return to LNER for battle with Norton & Stockton

York City Ladies return to the LNER Community Stadium for the second time as they welcome Norton & Stockton Ladies on Sunday 11th December.

The Minsterbelles come into the game on the back of a difficult run facing three of the top four in their last three matches, losing narrowly against Newcastle United and Durham Cestria before defeat in a Yorkshire derby against Barnsley last weekend.

This weekend’s visitors come into the game in a similar run of form to City, three straight league defeats as well as exits from both the League Cup and FA Cup in the last three months.

City and Norton have already met this season, on the opening day of the season at the Norton Sports Complex. Neither side could be separated at full time, the game finishing 1-1 after Bianca Owens opened the scoring before Fliss Jones netted our first ever goal in Tier 4 to earn us our first point of the campaign.

As both sides look to end their respective bad runs of form, the match this weekend is evenly poised as ninth place host tenth with City holding a one-point advantage in the table.
