Man United Women travel to Crystal Palace this weekend where they look to secure their sixth win in seven games this season.
Two weeks ago the Reds beat top-of-the-table Spurs in a landslide 4-1 victory, conceding their first and only goal of the campaign so far.
As of yet, the only team to keep United at bay has been Durham who held Stoney’s side to a 0-0 draw. A distinct contrast in comparison to the 27 goals they’ve already scored in just six games.
The high-flying Reds now sit in second position behind Spurs with a game in hand after the fixture vs Leicester was postponed.
Palace, on the other hand, have won just one of their seven games this season, drawing one and losing five.
Despite the amount of loses, Palace can take pride in their defensive ability given that Durham was the only team to put more than one goal past them – proving travelling to Hayes Lane will be no easy task for Man United.
Eagles manager Dean Davenport is relishing the chance to play Casey Stoney’s built-from-scratch squad.
”For us, United is a team we want to play against,” he said.
”There’s going to be a big crowd there, which is good, and hopefully, a lot of the Palace faithful come down. That will give the players an extra 10 to 20 percent.”
Confidence will be high for United having beaten off their arguably toughest opponent in the league with ease – so Palace will have to be at the top of their game.
