Our heaviest-ever Women’s Super League defeat was inflicted by Gareth Taylor’s team on Sunday night at the Joie Stadium thanks to a hat-trick of goals by Khadija Shaw in the first half.

Shaw showed her ruthless senses with three objectives inside a 15-minute spell to give the hosts an agreeable benefit at the stretch, and things just deteriorated for us after the break as Lauren Hemp, Jill Roord and substitute Laura Coombs added three more to leave us 6-0 down with somewhat less than an hour gone.

We had a small bunch chances at the opposite end, Martha Thomas prevented a couple from getting times by Khiara Keating, however Coombs had the last say with one more objective in stoppage time to give City a 7-0 win. The loss was our first since the first day of the season of the time as our eight-game unbeaten run came to a shivering stop – it was whenever we’d first yielded seven objectives in a WSL game, having recently allowed in six in a 6-1 loss to Munititions stockpile in October, 2020.

There were discount changes from the midweek Conti Cup prevail upon Bristol City, yet just two from our last association outing at Leicester City last Sunday as Asmita Brew and Linyan Zhang came in for their most memorable WSL starts of the time – and a first WSL appearance by and large for Zhang.

City showed their ethereal ability in the initial stages as Filippa Angeldahl gestured wide before Shaw got the sudden spike in demand for a decent cross from Leila Ouahabi to get between focus backs Luana Buhler and Molly Bartrip and power her side ahead in the 23rd moment, before again changing over from between the two protectors 10 minutes after the fact with a plunging header at the front post, this time from Roord’s conveyance.

Celin Bizet’s calculated shot was in the middle between those strikes while Zhang compromised around the edge of the crate two or multiple times, yet when Shaw pulled down a cross from the right and penetrated home to finish her high pitch in the 38th moment – having likewise scored a full go-around in this installation last season – we were left with a mountain to ascend.

Elegance Clinton terminated over toward the beginning of the last part yet any expectations we had of making advances into the scoreline were gouged when Hemp pinged into the top corner from right inside the case in the 48th moment, Thomas thusly denied one-on-one by Keating in our most obvious opportunity with regards to the game before Hemp’s objective bound get was helped over the line by Roord in the 53rd moment to make it 5-0. Coombs changed over Hemp’s scaled back with a beautiful first-time finish six minutes after the fact to intensify our hopelessness.

Experienced protector Shelina Zadorsky assisted with supporting things subsequent to coming on for her most memorable association appearance of the time and shockingly, we didn’t permit our heads to drop, Thomas’ header from Rosella Ayane’s cross very much saved and Angharad James seeing her savage shot hindered in the crate, yet City looked risky each time they got forward and after they won a free-throw 30 yards out, Alex Greenwood’s arrowing shot crashed off the crossbar.
We had more control of the belonging as of now however six minutes into added time, City added one more as Coombs multiplied her count from Jess Park’s cross. There was still time for Hemp to attempt another shot, however Becky Spencer was equivalent to it as a hopeless night in the north-west reached a conclusion.
