Finally blues got their second win of the season after a double from Louise Quinn, following Player of the match yet again Veatriki Sarri’s opener, earned Darren Carter’s side only their second win of the campaign.
Brighton had the first chance Kayleigh Green header from the centre of the box was saved in the top centre of the goal from a cross Emma Kullberg.
In the 9th minute Blues went in front with a unbelievable run from Veatriki Sarri passed the Brighton defence with ease and placing the ball brilliantly pass Walsh.
In the 23rd minute Blues had another chance when Gemma Lawley headed high over the bar from Jamie Finn’s cross.
Blues looked comfortable and the passing was great, Jade Pennock’s runs were great and they both deserved to have a start in the team .
In the second half it was more of the same Blues looking aggressive and playing their game but the first chance was for Brighton from sub Danielle Carter had a shot that was too high.
Blues had their first chance in the second half from Lisa Robertson with a left footed shot that just went wide.
In the 55th minute Brighton had had a attempt from Inessa Kaggman which was save from Emily Ramsey which was her best Performance in a Blues shirt.
Blues had a shot from Sub Libby smith from her right foot went wide of the post.
In the 75th minute Blues doubled their lead with the brilliant Louise Quinn (Friend of the show) header from a magnificent ball in from Veatriki Sarri .
We all began tp think can we celebrate now? Oh no this is Birmingham City their is something that always happens and in the 84th minute Julia Zigiotti Olme got one back for Brighton with her left footed shot from the centre of the box to the bottom left hand corner.
Blues finally got what they deserved 4 minutes later when the mighty Quinn got her 5th goal of the season with right footed shot from a very close range .
The fight continues
Blues are now 4 points behind Leicester City in the relegation zone with Leicester playing Man City tomorrow it is still likely blues will get relegated with Chelsea live on tv next weekend and Aston Villa on the final day.
But this was a much better all round performance from the girls in royal blue Passion Commitment and courage with the ball .
Player of the game Veatriki Sarri
Great blog again Stephen.
Lisa Robertson also had her best game of the season. Abbie Cowie is getting better with each appearance. I’d have preferred Christie Murray to come off instead of Jade Pannock, to see Pennock and Libby Smith both playing up front together. But a great all-round performance.
