Preview: Bristol City Women v Manchester City Women

Bristol City Women were defeated by Manchester City in the FA Cup quarter-final earlier this year, so the Vixens will want to go one better this time around.

Sunday’s meeting

Both sides go into Sunday’s Continental Tyres Cup quarter-final off the back of victories in their previous outing.

City Women defeated Brighton and Hove Albion 3-0 at the Stoke Gifford Stadium and Manchester City ran out 3-2 winners over Doncaster Belles at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Manchester City topped their group, whilst City Women finished second behind Chelsea.

City are undefeated in 13 games, currently sitting top of WSL 1 on 15 points. They recently defeated the Vixens 4-0 at the Academy Stadium in November.

 

Three-to-watch:

Steph Houghton – Houghton has represented her country at every level, totalling more than 50 appearances for England. Representing Team GB at the Olympics, Houghton became a household name by scoring in all three group matches, including the winning goals against New Zealand and Brazil.

Claire Emslie – The 23-year-old joined Nick Cushing’s side from City Women, having played – and scored – against Manchester City in the FA Cup and Spring Series campaigns earlier this year. An attacking presence, admired for her direct approach and creativity, Emslie recently scored her first goal for her new club and also her country.

Jane Ross – A prolific striker, Ross received her first call-up to the Scotland under-19s squad at the age of just 16 and has represented her country at senior level since 2009, making almost 100 appearances so far. Admired for her strength, control and technique, Ross is also quick and able to shoot with both feet.

 

 

As stated, parking is very limited at the Oaklands Park Stadium on Sunday, however, there is a bus stop outside, timetables and a journey planner can be found here. The postcode to use is BS32 4AG.

Almondsbury Sport and Social Club, which is opposite the ground, are opening their facilities from 12pm for those who wish to park, have a drink and wander over to the stadium ready for 2pm kick-off. North Bristol RFC will also have limited paid parking spaces available.

Prices for Sunday’s game are as follows (Season Card holders will get the Member rate, which is in brackets. Please present your Season Card at the turnstile on arrival):

Adult - £8 (£5)

65+ - £5 (£3)

Under-22 - £5 (£3)

Under 19 - £4 (£2)

Under 12 - £2 (£1)
