Match Reports

Baggies beaten at Stoke

13 November 2017

ALBION suffered a 2-1 defeat away to Stoke City Ladies in the FA Women’s Premier League Northern Division.

Leanne Mitchell's second-half strike was not enough to salvage a point for the Baggies on Remembrance Sunday.

With little chances created in the opening stages, it was Stoke that went ahead in the 21st minute when Ashleigh Hayes collected a Hollie Gibson left-wing cross to fire home from close-range.

The Baggies fell further behind just ten minutes before the interval when Asher found space inside the box to head a Keryakoplis curling free-kick past Kinnerley.

Despite being two-goals down at the break, Albion refused to give up and got their just rewards thanks to Mitchell's seventh goal of the season.

The inform striker latched onto a Lauren Price throughball to confidently slot past Hall giving the Baggies renewed hope of securing a point.

Nadia Bacciochi and Lauren Price both saw clear-cut chances thwarted as Albion rallied for a late equaliser, but the goal never came meaning Louis Sowe's side slipped to defeat in Staffordshire.

ALBION: Kinnerley, H. Price (Finn 58), Hull (c), Fellows, Burton, Finch, Mitchell, Kikomeko, James (Bacciochi 78), L. Price, Dale (Vincze 46).

Subs: Moore, Taho.

Albion visit Crusaders LFC in the Birmingham FA County Cup 2nd Round on Sunday, November 19 (ko 2pm).
