Karen Hills’ Addicks extended their unbeaten run to five games with a 0-0 draw against Sheffield United at The Oakwood on Sunday.

The result means both FA Women's Championship meetings between the two sides this season have ended goalless.

Speaking to CharltonTV after the game, Hills said: “I think the first-half was very even. I do think we had maybe a couple of clear-cut chances in the second-half. But now ultimately, Sheffield were always going to be a good side and we went there before and it was a draw.”

Despite not getting the win, Hills was pleased with how the second-half of the game unfolded: “I think they took on a lot of information at half-time. 

“They came out and did better. I thought we were better in the final third. We created more. We kept a clean sheet and that’s all I can ask for at the end of the day.”

For the fourth successive match, goalkeeper Eartha Cumings kept a clean sheet which Hills highlighted in her post-match comments.

“I thought Eartha probably had not a lot to do the whole game and kept her cool and her confidence really well and was very focused.”

Looking ahead to Sunday’s match at The Oakwood against Lewes, Hills said: “Lewes are again another tough side and we went down there and lost 2-0 last time.

“We just need to concentrate on what we’re doing really well and just improve on some of the other areas and we will do that.”
