Derby County Women are back in league action on Sunday afternoon when they head to West Bromwich Albion (3pm 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 is hoping the Ewes can make it third time lucky when they take on the Baggies on Sunday.

Albion were 4-2 winners at the Don Amott Arena back in August in the Determining Round of the League Cup, while they also claimed a 1-0 success in the league back in December.

Griffiths knows her side will have to be on their game if they are to claim a positive result on the road.

She said: “You could say that West Brom have been our bogey side this season; we’ve played them twice at home and lost on both occasions.

“We know that we’ll have to be at our best if we’re to get a result.”

She added: “West Brom are a well organised team, their movement is good and their patterns of play are strong so we’ll have to be right on it.”

From The Dressing Room...

Captain Amy Sims says the Ewes need to take the momentum from their last two results into the clash with the Baggies.

A 2-0 home win over Stourbridge in their last league outing a fortnight ago was followed up with a resounding 5-0 success at Sutton Coldfield Town in the Quarter Finals of the National League Plate last weekend.

Sims, who scored a hat-trick in the win at Sutton, believes the squad are relishing the challenge of trying to pick up a third successive win in all competitions.

She said: “We can take a lot of positives into this game and we want to try put right the things that didn’t go well when we played West Brom in December.

“It is a massive match and every league fixture comes with different challenges.”

She added: “It will be a difficult game but we have to take the momentum from our previous matches into it and see what we can do.”

The Season So Far...

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

In 13 matches in all competitions they have claimed ten wins and just three losses, one of which was to Women's Super League side Leicester City in the Adobe Women's FA Cup last month.

They’ve scored 42 times during that run and conceded just 13 goals along the way.

Their impressive run has seen them move up to mid-table 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 National League Plate in the second half of the season.

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