‘Result gives us good momentum’ - Harrison

City Women goalscorer Abi Harrison believes her side can build off yesterday’s 2-1 away victory over Brighton and Hove Albion in the FA Continental Cup as attentions turn to Spurs at home in the league.

Harrison broke the deadlock inside the opening ten minutes of City’s victory with a well struck goal from the edge of the area. City doubled their lead through Ebony Salmon in the final moments of the first half, with Brighton pulling a goal back from the spot via Ellie Green in the sixtieth minute.

“I’m always happy to get on the scoresheet, obviously as a striker it’s your job. Ideally we would have liked to keep a clean sheet but it’s a result to build off and give us momentum going into this weekend against Tottenham, said Harrison.

“We pride ourselves on how solid and robust we are defensively, it was penalty and one of those that you just have to take. We were solid, tight at the back when we needed to be and to not conceded from open play again is a good sign and that’s testament to our defensive players in particular.

“After the Liverpool game we touched on starting early, getting a good start and we managed to do that. It’s something we want to continue to do and hopefully we will get a good ninety minute performance in.

“You always get rotation in the Cup fixtures and those that came into the team did really well. Overall it was a young team and you’re always going to get that here at Bristol City as it’s a club that gives chances to youngsters, so it’s about making the most of the opportunities you get and I feel everyone stepped up when given the chance.

“It’s a massive game coming up this weekend against Spurs and we know how big that could be for the season as a whole. It’s about transferring what we’ve done in the last couple of games and take confidence into this weekend, we respect Tottenham for what they bring, but we fully believe we can go out there and get three points.

Bristol City Women take on Tottenham Hotspur as Barclays FA Women’s Super League action returns to the SGS College Stoke Gifford Stadium on Sunday, October 27th (3pm) and supporters can purchase tickets here.
