And they will be hoping to carry that form into this weekend when they are back in action in the Women’s FA Cup.

Colliery bounced back from a 6-4 defeat at Barnsley Women’s Development team with a solid performance against Handsworth.

Jasmine Blunt headed in from a cross from Sophie Thompson to give Harworth the lead just after the half hour.
