Sunderland Flames take on Kendall this afternoon as they look to maintain their good recent form.
The Wearsiders have won their last three matches and are currently third in the league.
However, they will face a difficult task against a side that have only lost once this season.
But that defeat came against the Flames back in November and Sunderland Captain Jenny Snowdon thinks they can take confidence from having overcome Kendal already this season.
She said: “We’re hoping for a good result today. We beat them away, it was our first win of the season and so it was a real good moral booster for the girls.
“We know them well as a team, we know their game plan and we know how they operate so hopefully we’ve got the tactics to counter that.”
This is the first year the Flames have competed in the National Challenge Northern League but they have done remarkably well so far.
“So far this season it’s been excellent. It was a slow start but we built up and we built some good momentum now with three wins. So, let’s just keep it going,” Snowdon said.
“At the moment we are sat in third and I see no reason why we can’t maintain that position which for our first season I think is pretty good.”
The bad weather over winter has caused problems for the Wearsiders, however, as they have only managed to play one game in the last three months.
So they will be hoping that they can start quickly against a side that still have hopes of winning the league.
Kick-off is at 12:30 at the Ashbrooke Sports Club.
