10. Huddersfield Town v Derby County

Tie number ten is another all-WPL Northern Division game which matches Huddersfield Town against Derby County.

The two teams were fairly evenly matched last season, with Derby finishing 7th in the league and Huddersfield 8th, and both were eliminated from last year’s FA Cup at the first hurdle. Derby will have to be wary of Huddersfield’s Emily Heckler, who was last season’s divisional top scorer, and who shows no sign of easing off this season.

The teams have already met twice in the league, and both games ended in home wins – Derby won 3-1 in September; Huddersfield won 4-1 in October.

My prediction: Yet another tough one to call, but I’ll go for Huddersfield.
