A Point Gained - Kirk

Willie Kirk believes Bristol City Women’s goalless draw at Durham was a point gained and not two points lost.

City were left frustrated after they failed to overcome their North East opponents in the WSL2 on Sunday.

The result sees the Vixens remain in second place in the division, but they closed the gap on leaders Yeovil Town after the Glovers suffered a 3-0 defeat to Everton.

Head coach Kirk said: “At first we were disappointed but a point away at Durham, where they’ve been strong this year, is not the worst result.

“We went there with the objective of getting three points but on reflection, my players gave 100% effort and determination against a physical Durham team.

"Putting things in perspective, it’s ultimately ground gained on the league leaders.”

City take on London Bees, managed by former Vixens manager Dave Edmundson, at Stoke Gifford Stadium on Saturday, July 23rd (6pm).

Chelsea loanee Millie Farrow is likely to miss the tie due to a shoulder injury.
