Report: Birmingham City 0-0 Bristol Academy

Birmingham City and Bristol Academy are both still without a league win this season as the two sides played out a 0-0 draw at Damson Park.

Despite having chance after chance, the Blues couldn't force a winner against the Vixens, who finally claimed their first point the day after appointing Willie Kirk as their new manager.

It took 25 minutes for either side to create any chance of note with Birmingham's Freda Ayisi sending a shot across goal wide after chasing down a long ball by Remi Allen.

Mel Lawley then a good chance for the Blues but hesitated in shooting and forced herself wide before sending an effort across the face of goal.

The hosts continued to have the best openings in the second half with Ayisi setting up Lawley on the left with Bristol goalkeeper, Mary Earps, holding on to her low shot.

With the pressure continuing to mount, Earps did well to block from Ayisi following Jo Potter's corner with Meaghan Sargeant volleying the rebound just wide.

It just wouldn't go in for Birmingham, who have only scored one league goal this year, with Kirsty Linnett lashing over the bar from close range with ten minutes left. 

Bristol Academy goalkeeper Mary Earps is looking forward to working under new manager Willie Kirk after the Vixens finally claimed their first FA WSL 1 point of the season with a 0-0 draw at Birmingham City.

Kirk succeeded the sacked Dave Edmondson yesterday and takes charge for the first time against Arsenal on Saturday with his new charges looking more resolute than in previous matches.
