Report: Liverpool Ladies 2-0 Bristol City Women

A Bethany England double condemned Bristol City Women to a 2-0 defeat at the Select Security Stadium.

The Vixens started brightly, with Lauren Hemp firing inches wide in the opening minutes of the game.

Liverpool started to dominate shortly after with Jess Clarke looking dangerous out-wide and England threatening in the box. A number of chances fell to England which she failed to capitalise on, Danique Kerkdijk was often on hand to clear the ball away.

On 20 minutes City Women had their most clear-cut chance of the half, with Julie Biesmans firing from range. Her effort was tipped on to the bar by Siobhan Chamberlain and the visitors started to press.

Minutes later, the ball fell to Yana Daniels in the box after a flick on from Charlie Estcourt, the Belgian international fired just over the bar with a half volley.

On the half-hour mark, Chamberlain was called upon again after Chloe Arthur's low-driven effort was heading for the corner of her net, but the England shot-stopper got down quickly to save excellently.

On the stroke of half-time Liverpool almost took the lead, Clarke's cross found Ali Johnson, whose effort was tipped onto the bar by Sophie Baggaley.

The first-half finished goalless, with City Women feeling they should be one or two goals ahead.

Liverpool struck immediately after the break. From the kick-off, Lauren Hemp found herself through on goal, but her effort was fired wide. Liverpool re-grouped and advanced up-field, Clarke fired a cross into England who got on the end of it to nudge past Baggaley.

Shortly after, England almost doubled the Reds lead with a powerful header, but it went just over the bar.

On the hour mark, she did double the lead. The striker, who is on loan from Chelsea, struck a shot from the edge of the box which sailed into the top corner of the net.

Bristol City Women pressed for the last 20 minutes in order to get back into the game, but it was in vain as Liverpool held on for all three points.
