We are looking forward to being back at the Stoke Gifford Stadium tomorrow - Kirk

Bristol City Women manager Willie Kirk is looking for his side to continue their momentum tomorrow, when the Vixens welcome Brighton and Hove Albion to the Stoke Gifford Stadium (5:30pm).

Tomorrow is the first meeting between the two teams in the WSL era, but the Vixens boss is well aware of the threat the Seagulls bring after keeping an eye on them this season.

Last time out, City Women defeated Yeovil Ladies in Somerset to record their third West Country Derby win in a row and Kirk hopes his team can utilise home advantage tomorrow evening.

He said:” We put in an excellent performance last time out in our victory against Yeovil and I am eager to continue that momentum tomorrow to take back into league action next week against Birmingham.

“Brighton will be a tough test for us, they currently sit fourth in WSL 2 and have only lost one of their first five games. They pose threats all over the pitch, so we will have to be switched on from the off.

“It is great to be back in familiar surroundings tomorrow and we will look to utilise home advantage to get the win in front of our fans.”

Depending on results and match scheduling, it might be the last home game this calendar year and the City Women manager has expressed his sincere thanks for all of the support the team has received throughout 2017.

Kirk added: “From the warm sunshine to the driving rain, the fans have been here shouting and cheering for us and I can’t express enough how much it means and I hope for much of the same in 2018 should this be our last outing here this year."
