5 reasons to be at Aston Villa Women v Sheffield United Women

Aston Villa Women return to Boldmere St Michaels on Saturday night when they take on Sheffield United in the Continental League Cup (7:30pm KO).

Here are 5 reasons why you should be in the crowd to support Gemma Davies and her squad.

1] Winning mentality

Villa have enjoyed a tremendous start to the season, chalking up five straight wins in the FA Women’s Championship.

The team have showcased an ability to win in a variety of ways - coming from behind, grinding out one-goal wins and recording big scores.

Davies will be hoping her team can continue their hot streak against the Blades.


2] Goal fest

The last five matches between these two teams have produced a startling 25 goals.

The latest clash on the opening day of this season was a game to remember, with Villa coming back from 2-0 down to triumph 3-2.

There’s a healthy rivalry between the two sets of players and neither team will want to go down without a fight on Saturday.

3] Homecoming

Incredibly, it will be 62 days since Aston Villa Women last played at Boldmere when they emerge from the tunnel this weekend.

A game at Villa Park was sandwiched between several away fixtures, meaning Villa have been away from their home ground for over two months.

The players will be itching to get back playing in front of the home support, with a good crowd expected to be cheering them on.


4] Up for the cup

The League Cup offers Gemma Davies a chance to rotate her squad and give minutes to a number of players.

And with great competition for places across the team, the players handed a start on Saturday will need to impress.

Villa lost to Durham in their opening game of the group phase and need to take three points to get themselves back in the mix for qualification.

5] Double header

Aston Villa fans can enjoy a feast of football on Saturday.

The Women’s game takes place just a couple of hours after Dean Smith’s team take on Brighton at Villa Park.

And with Boldmere just four miles away from the main stadium, supporters have a great chance to cheer both teams on.
