👀 A LOOK BACK: Blackburn Ladies 0-1 Bristol City Women (Sun, Jan 16th)

City Women extended their unbeaten run to nine games as they beat Blackburn 1-0 at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium on Sunday in their first outing of 2022.

City had to defend strongly early on, with Ella Powell putting in a strong clearance to deny the home side an opportunity while, moments later, Leah Cataldo shielded the ball well to win a free-kick as Blackburn pressed forward.

Then came the breakthrough in the 17th minute with Harrison’s half-vollley after a scramble in the box from a City corner.

The Reds had chances to make it a more comfortable victory but Harrison's 11th goal of the season was enough to secure all three points in the Robins' first game of the New Year.  


🆚 OUR OPPONENTS: Manchester City

Formed: 1988
Stadium: The Academy Stadium
Manager: Gareth Taylor
Nickname: The Citizens, The Blues
Finish last season: 2nd, Women's Super League

Wednesday's FA Continental Cup quarter-final tie sees City Women travel to the the Academy Stadium in what will be 5th in the Barclays FAWSL against 5th in the FA Championship.

The two sides last met in the WSL back in March last year, where the Citizens took all three points with a 3-0 victory at Twerton Park. 

Both teams come into the knockout fixture off the back of victories away from home as the Robins won 1-0 against Blackburn and Man City getting th better of Aston Villa 3-0.

The two teams are currently on unbeaten runs of their own, with the Reds unbeaten in their last nine and the Citizens winning their last five on the bounce. 


👀 ONE TO WATCH

LAUREN HEMP

Hemp started her senior career at Bristol City after joining the club in 2016, netting against Watford on her debut soon after. 

After a successful period at the Robins, netting nine goals in 24 games, the striker was then signed by high-flying Manchester City in 2018.  

Hemp has bagged 18 goals since joining from the Reds and has gone on to make 12 appearances for England, hitting the back of the net on four occasions. 

The 21-year-old will be keen to continue her fine goal scoring form against her former club after already tallying up three goals since the start of the New Year.
