    We beat them 3-0 at home, but they aren't a soft touch - particularly after a tough week for us, where our mind was on other things. Charlton drew with Durham 2-2 at the weekend which means they're only two points behind us (though we do have a game in hand over them).

    Spurs are only one point below us, so any points dropped will be noticed.

    We’re going to London on to buses this Sunday to compete with Spurs on two fronts. But this is the most important game. I think the games against Charlton, Durham and Spurs are going to be heavily decisive in the bid for promotion, as the divide to the other teams in the league is so big, Spurs will likely claim maximum points from them.

    Worried. The last time we played a tough team away after a cup game, we lost.

    I reckon we'll go back to Ella Toone, Charlie Devlin, maybe Aimee Palmer who get some rest.

    True, it will be a test of the mettle of these young women at this point.

    I haven't found any TV or radio coverage for this so it looks like it's a twitter feed sort of day.

    https://twitter.com/CAFCWomen seem to be tweeting regularly. I think the match kicked off a couple of minutes late - not sure why.

    0-0 at the moment.

    Must be bad if they are sending people back to the changing room. Hopefully she is ok. Must be a break if they are sending them away you would think.

    Why do MUTV not cover those games?

    They won't when the men have a game on the same day. The men take priority.

    Plus it's quite hard for them to do the aways. Everton I think was a special case - local match so easy for us to send kit/personnel - big game - no clash with other live coverage.

    But as you say, on a men's match day, MUTV is more or less 100% on pre-match buildup etc.

    Still no official updates - the United and the Charlton medical teams are with her. Sounds very serious.

    Am surprised that there isn't one at the ground? A reply on CAFC twitter said it's been called.

    That's a strange one. United have an ambulance waiting at the stadium on match days. I don't know if it means the medical team have asked for a specialist vehicle or if Charlton really don't have that cover.

    Would be interesting to know if this is common place where football is concerned. There might be criteria regarding the crowd size etc as to if they have one ready on site.

    Yeah, maybe that's it. Even my local 3rd division outfit in Spain has two ambulances at every game.

    Charlton might have to have a re-think then. Do United have one at their women's games?

    Yes, always, and it's there before the players start warming up.

    We even had one in pre-season for the behind closed door games.

    No idea, but before today I would have assumed so. I guess it could be crowd size, like you need so many stewards, so many police etc. But then you'd think that it's basic health and safety to have at least one on site.

    Hope she's OK.

    I must admit I thought it was part of the WSL Championship rules - one of the reasons why the costs had gone up too high for clubs like Doncaster, but apparently not.



    The United fans there seem pretty rattled by it. I guess we're just not used to women's football.

    The ambulance is on site now at least. So I'm guessing that the player will soon be travelling.

    I won't be surprised to see the game abandoned, it's been a 45 minute delay.

    Doesn't sound good at all. Hope she is ok, or will recover OK is a better way to put it.

    That's a fan account, but wouldn't be a surprise if it's correct.

    Bloody hell. They had no oxygen? I hope that isn't true.

    Charlton could be in trouble over this. Surely you need oxygen at a game!?

    I'm guessing it means both teams' emergency kits have been used up and Charlton don't have any stored on site.

    Could be.
