Huddersfield Town Women continue unbeaten start to 2023/24 campaign
- Huddersfield Town Women 5-3 Middlesbrough Women
- Town Women progress in FA Women’s National League Cup
- Stoke City Women next on Sunday 3 September 2023
A professional performance from Town Women secured their place in the next round of the FA Women’s National League Cup at the expense of lower league opposition Middlesbrough FC Women.
Goals in the first half from Feruiz Abdullahi and Aisha Nsangou set Town up nicely, with Lauren Robson getting a goal back for Boro before the break.
Abdullahi scored a brace in the second half as well as Britt Sanderson and Dolcie O’Connor getting in on the act for Town, with Boro grabbing a consolation goal late on. Town held on to book their place in the next round of the League Cup whilst our visitors drop into the League Plate.
The game saw first starts of the season for Lauren Joyce and Serena Fletcher, as well as full debuts from Feiruz Abdullahi, Aisha Nsangou, Scarlett McMahon and Caitlin Devins.
Beth Ibbotson, Freya Walton and Dolcie O’Connor keep their place as Kate Mallin, Britt Sanderson and Yasmin Mason dropped to the bench.
It was a breakneck start for Town as Feiriz Abdullahi opened the scoring within three minutes with Boro unable to deal with a bouncing ball, and Abdullahi turned home from close range.
It was two after goalscorer Abdullahi was then upended 25 yards out and Aisha Nsangou’s shot was too much for Wareham in the Boro goal, only being able to palm it into the top corner.
Dolcie O’Connor got her first Terriers goal just after the break, and Town then put their foot their foot on the gas scoring two goals in the space of ten minutes put the game beyond doubt.
Britt Sanderson finished emphatically before Abdullahi got her second of the game not long after following a poor clearance.
A late consolation for Boro didn’t spoil Towns afternoon as they booked their place in the next stage of the competition.
Town are back in action next Sunday, travelling to Stoke City FC Women with a 3pm kick off in Staffordshire.
