It "will not be long" until we see a woman managing a men's professional football team, says Hannah Dingley, academy manager at Forest Green Rovers.

Dingley remains the only woman in charge of a men's English Football League academy, since her appointment in 2019.

The 39-year-old's role sees her develop young players with the aim of them progressing to the first-team.

Substitute Emma Harries made a dramatic impact with two goals as Reading fought back for a draw against Women's Super League relegation rivals Brighton.

Celtic head coach Fran Alonso appeared to be headbutted from behind by a member of the Rangers coaching staff following a dramatic 1-1 draw in the Scottish Women's Premier League.

The visitors were celebrating a 99th-minute equaliser when Rangers coach Craig McPherson approached Alonso after the full-time whistle at Broadwood.

Talking to Sky Sports, Spaniard Alonso said: "Someone pushed me from behind. I never talked to him the whole game. I was called a little rat, but I don't know why."

Greenwood 'not worried' by Man City's slow start:
City may have seemed unlikely title contenders when they lost their first two WSL matches, and they were eliminated from the Champions League at the qualifying stage by Real Madrid.

However, Gareth Taylor's side have not lost a game inside 90 minutes since defeat by Chelsea on 25 September and are unbeaten in 13 WSL games - including 11 wins.

Manchester City leapfrogged defending champions Chelsea to go second in the Women's Super League with an impressive victory over the Blues on Sunday.

Ahead of Ramadan, Sky Sports News exclusively revealed match officials across the Premier League and the EFL have been asked to allow players to break their fast during evening matches over the holy period.

Importantly, that guidance also covers matches in the Women's Super League and the FA Women's Championship, allowing elite players in the women's game to break their fast by taking on liquids, energy gels or nutritional supplements, during a natural pause in play.

West Ham manager Paul Konchesky on what women's football means to him

"If the women’s game keeps getting the media, the TV rights that it’s getting, I’m not saying the women’s game won’t ever get as big as the men’s game because I think it can get towards that."

West Ham Women manager Paul Konchesky was a late convert to the intricacies of the WSL, but like many others has now come to fully appreciate how undervalued the women's game has been for so long.

Everton’s Holmgaard twins: ‘We wouldn’t have this life if we hadn’t pushed each other on’

While Sara is left-footed and plays in central defence, Karen favours her right foot and anchors midfield but, back in the dressing room, the pair’s similarities far outweigh the differences.
Even Everton’s manager, Brian Sørensen, has been known to confuse one identical twin with the other. “Being left and right-footed is the biggest difference. I’m maybe a bit quieter but otherwise we’re nearly the same,” says Sara before Karen interjects. “I have a higher bun,” she points out, gesturing to her hair. “But we’re just enjoying being here together, it’s something special.”

Hayes warns Chelsea can ‘lose it’ in first leg of quarter-final against Lyon

Hayes’s team face the eight-time winners and defending champions who have not been in perfect form this season, having endured a heavy 5-1 defeat at home against Arsenal during the group stages. But key players who were injured earlier in the campaign, such as the Australia defender Ellie Carpenter, are back in Lyon’s squad and it has led to a flawless run of games. Lyon have not dropped any points in any competition since they drew 0-0 with Juventus in the Champions League group stage in December.
