It was the ignite of a novel season for the Women’s team, with a fresh manager, and somewhat a few fresh faces of players who had come down from the WSL to ten on the Reds. Despite all of that, it was a familiar void viewpoint of frustration as to the London City Lionesses.
For a span with promotion aspirations, it was a mild tablet to swallow, especially considering London City perfect 3 spots and 15 points unpunctual Liverpool in the table last season. While the result left many fans ruing missed chances and decrying unforced defensive errors, Liverpool’s manager, Matt Beard, took a slightly additional positive bent to the outcome.
We sense how hard it is. You can see how London raised their game, with us being back at Prenton Park with the fans. For most parts, we did okay. I know that we calmness retain plenty to fine-tune and it’s disappointing we didn’t obtain the rectify result, but there are positives we can take. We obtain to bring it on the chin but we’ll be fine. The union has shown gigantic amount and we won’t let this define what is to come. We responded really well after the goal, but the way the diversion went it did look like a set-piece would decide it. It’s frustrating not to procure anything from the game. Credit to London, they put us beneath force and made it a scrappy match.
Of course, a season isn’t won (or hopefully lost) in the first game, and Liverpool were not the only pair with aspirations of promotion to be pipped on the day. Lewes, who whole in final cranny last season, drew 0-0 with Charlton Athletic. Sheffield United, who entire rightful tardy Liverpool last year, gone 2-0 to Blackburn Rovers.
With only 20 games in the FA Women’s Championship, however, the margins for error become smaller. Every mark becomes further precious for these teams as they duke it out for the sole promotion spot. Hopefully Beard can obtain his team firing as they flow to take on Watford subsequent weekend.
