Frankie Brown believes there were plenty of positives in last night’s performance away to Manchester City despite losing 1-0 at the Academy Stadium.
Gemma Bonner’s first minute strike proved the difference between the two sides on a bitterly cold night in the North West, but Brown - who was skipper for the evening - was proud of her side for demonstrating a shift in mentality and improvements with the ball at her feet.
“It’s always a tough shift coming up here to face a team such as Man City, but I feel the main positive we can take away from today is our in-possession play,” said Brown.
“It’s so frustrating to concede a goal early on, especially from a set-piece but I think he girls dug and we didn’t then concede more and we grew into the game and we’re disappointed we didn’t nick anything in the end.
“We needed to get better on the ball and we have done, it’s something we’ve been working on for a long time, so this a game we can use as a platform to build on for the rest of the season.
“The second half of the season is going to be tough for us, but we need to stick together and we need everyone to fight for the same cause.
“We frustrated Man City a little but towards the end and they’ll probably be a bit disappointed but that’s testament to our performance. Previously our heads would have dropped after conceding so early, they scored three in the last ten minutes we played them, so it’s a step forward for us.”
