Derby County Women will round off 2023 with a home clash against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday afternoon (2pm kick-off). has brought together all the key information you will need to know ahead of the FA Women's National League Northern Premier Division fixture.

Manager's Thoughts...

Manager Sam Griffiths says her side will need to be on top form if they’re to end 2023 with a positive result.

The Baggies were 4-2 winners over the Ewes in the League Cup Determining Round back in August at the Don Amott Arena but sit 10th in the league standings with two wins and a draw from their opening eight matches.

Griffiths feels Derby will have to be ‘at their very best’ to overcome their opponents.

She said: “We will prepare this week to face a West Brom side that are around us in the league and beat us in the League Cup back in August.

“They will be well organised and are a good team. We will have to be at our very best.”

From The Dressing Room...

Skipper Amy Sims has labelled the side’s final game of 2023 as a ‘massive’ one.

After claiming six wins in a row in all competitions to gradually climb the table, as well as remain in the Adobe Women’s FA Cup and National League Plate, Sims knows the importance of keeping momentum on the Ewes’ side going into the festive break.

She said: “It will be just as important to get the win this week as it was in the FA Cup last week.

“We want to keep moving up the league table. We know West Brom are in and around us so it is a massive game, as they all are in our league.

“Regardless of the opponent or the pitch, our principles remain the same and we’ll go out to try and win.”

The Season So Far...

Derby County Women’s form since the beginning of October has been nothing short of impressive.

In nine matches in all competitions they have claimed eight wins and a single defeat.

They’ve scored 35 times during that run and conceded just eight goals along the way.

Their impressive run has seen them move up to sixth spot in the FA Women’s National League Northern Premier Division, after a tough start to the season against strong opposition, and they also have an interest in the Women’s FA Cup and National League Plate going into the closing stages of 2023.

With several players in impressive form right across the pitch, there’s plenty of encouraging signs to build on in the weeks and months ahead.
