City Women hit late equaliser to hold Liverpool

Bristol City Women held Spring Series leaders Liverpool Ladies to a creditable 1-1 draw at Stoke Gifford Stadium on Saturday.

The Vixens defended impressively to keep a clean sheet for 80 minutes, but fell behind to a late opener from Liverpool substitute Katie Zelem.

Just as the visitors thought they had done enough to snatch victory, Willie Kirk’s side showed their never-say-die spirit to hit back, drawing level five minutes later as Lily Agg headed home a Claire Emslie cross.

Liverpool were then reduced to ten players when another substitute, Kate Longhurst, picked up a second booking for a foul on Agg.

The Merseysiders remain top of the pile but have played two games more than closest challengers Chelsea and Manchester City.

City move on to four points for the season, with home games to come against Chelsea (Wednesday, May 31st, 7.05pm) and Arsenal (Saturday, June 3rd, 5.30pm).

Tickets for Bristol City Women’s remaining Spring Series games are available online. Follow @BristolCityWFC on Twitter to keep up to date with action and news.
