LOOKING BACK: Liverpool 0-0 City Women (Sun, Sept 12th)

City Women finished their first block of three games with a trip to the North West to face Liverpool at Prenton Park.

Following City’s 2-1 victory over Lewes FC Women, Lauren Smith side would be looking to follow up their first win of the 21/22 campaign.

For the majority of the first half City dominated with the lion’s share of the opportunities as Aimee Palmer and Ava Kuyken both went close on multiple occasions.

Liverpool were then reduced to ten after Niamh Fahey was shown a second yellow card, before Fran Bentley was called into action to deny Leanne Kiernan as she hurtled towards goal, but the City ‘keeper stood tall to deny the forward.

Simran Jhamat had the chance to secure all three points, however the forward dragged her effort just wide of the target.

In the closing minutes City were also reduced to ten as Brooke Aspin picked up two quick bookings to be shown a red card and it finished honours even at Prenton Park.
