Rovers Ladies will look to record back-to-back victories over Durham when the two teams face off in the Continental League Cup.

Here’s our guide to the game at Bamber Bridge…


It's a 2pm kick-off at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium, with the turnstiles open from 1pm. 


Rovers are looking to build on the point they picked up away at Coventry United on Matchday One.

Group A looks wide open, with the Blues sitting in fourth spot out of six.

Three points for Gemma Donnelly’s side could see them top the group by the end of the weekend, depending on other results.

If the game ends in a draw, there will be a penalty shootout for an extra bonus point.


Durham thrashed Aston Villa 3-0 on Matchday One and are the early leaders in Group A thanks to their superior goal difference.  

The Wildcats were also sitting top of the league table until Rovers ended their 100% start to the season last weekend.


This will be the second competitive meeting between the two Championship clubs.

Durham are searching for immediate revenge after Rovers came away from New Ferens Park with all three points.

Ellie Stewart’s first-half penalty proved to be the difference between the two sides in last weekend’s league meeting.


Goalkeeper Fran Stenson is cup-tied and unavailable for the game, so Lauren Perry is expected to deputise in goal.

Lauren Thomas is still on the treatment table, but only weeks away from a return to action.
