WHAT HAPPENED

Jordan Nobbs scored her 50th goal for the club as we beat Liverpool 3-0 at Meadow Park on Tuesday night. 

We started the game on the front foot, with Dominique Janssen trying her luck from 25 yards, before Danielle Van de Donk’s chipped ball over the defence fell just short of Katie McCabe. 

Emma Mitchell’s volley from Nobbs’ corner then sailed over the bar, before Beth Mead carved open a wonderful opportunity. The 22-year old beat her marker on the right wing and cut in on her left foot, working a brilliant low save from Siobhan Chamberlain. 

The opening stages of the second half were largely quiet, as both sides look to find their feet. But on the hour mark, the game came to life. 

Little struck the woodwork from just inside the box and when Nobbs recovered the ball to deliver a dangerous cross into the box, Mead’s glancing header fell just wide of the post. 

It seemed as if things just weren't going to go our way, but in the 65th minute, Katie McCabe provided a moment of magic to break the deadlock. As the ball fell to her feet 30 yards from goal, she let rip, finding the top corner. 

Ten minutes later, we’d doubled our lead through Nobbs, who made no mistake in finding the back of the net from close range to bring up goal number 50.

It looked like the game had run its course, but just before the end a dangerous corner from Nobbs placed Chamberlain under pressure, and the Liverpool keeper was unable to prevent it from hitting the back of the net. 

WHAT IT MEANS 

We’ve moved up to third place in the WSL with 28 points - just one point below second-placed Manchester City who have a game in hand.

WHAT’S NEXT

Our attention must now turn to our WSL clash with Birmingham City on Sunday, April 29. The game will take place at Damson Park with kick off at 2pm.
