Glassgirls looking to shatter Blades’ hopes in Cup

Stourbridge Ladies are looking to pull off an almighty upset as they host Sheffield United in the third round of the Women's FA Cup tomorrow.

The Glassgirls, of the fifth-tier West Midlands Premier, have made it through three ties so far and this is their longest-ever run in the competition.

They saw off Solihull Sporting Ladies and Derby County Women before digging in deep to beat Cambridge City Ladies 2-1 last weekend.

And this will be their toughest test yet as United, who are ninth in the FA Women's Championship, head to the War Memorial Ground (1pm).

Tickets are priced at £6 for adults and just £1 for children under the age of 12.
