Liverpool Ladies overcame Birmingham City Ladies as they recorded their third win of the FA WSL1 season.
It was the visitors, Birmingham City who had the better of the chances in the first half, as Freya Ayisi went close twice. Lucy Quinn’s pinpoint cross was headed over after ten minutes, before Ayisi’s effort from the right wing was saved by goalkeeper Siobhan Chamberlain.
It was Liverpool who took the lead, however, as a long ball from the defence was lifted over the Birmingham defence, and Niamh Charles cleverly read the bounce of the ball and lifted it over the Birmingham goalkeeper on the half hour mark.
Liverpool almost doubled their lead, as Beth England was through on goal, before Birmingham captain Danielle Carter made a vital intervention.
Liverpool started the second half on top, and a low Alex Greenwood cross was just inches away from being converted by Natasha Harding ten minutes into the half.
Birmingham had an excellent chance to level the game, as Ayisi fired a close range effort past Chamberlain and onto the crossbar.
Liverpool Ladies’ next game is at home to Aston Villa Ladies in the Continental Tyres Cup on the 15th of November, kick off is at 7:00pm.
