WOMEN PREVIEW: ALBION V LIVERPOOL

23 September 2018

Brighton & Hove Albion take on Liverpool in the FA Women’s Super League this afternoon, kick-off 12.15pm.

The match marks a moment of history for the club, as it is live on BT Sport and will be the first-ever televised match for Albion's women’s team .

The Seagulls head into the match following a midweek defeat by Birmingham City. The Seagulls fell to a debatable, late first-half penalty by Aoife Mannion. Although Hope Powell’s side fought back resiliently in the second-half, they were unable to find the goal they needed.

The result means that Albion are still searching for their first FA WSL win, although they will take some confidence from the FA Continental Tyres Cup victory over London Bees last week, which saw them stay in contention for qualification to the quarter finals in that tournament.

On the other hand, today's opponents Liverpool are looking for their first win within 90 minutes this season. The Reds opened their season with a 1-0 defeat to Women’s Championship newcomers Manchester United in the Continental Tyres Cup, before being humbled 5-0 in their opening league fixture of the season by Arsenal.

Following this match, manager Neil Redfern resigned from his role with former men’s team goalkeeper Chris Kirkland taking the reins on a caretaker basis.

In his first match in charge, the former England player managed to avoid a shock defeat at the hands of Women’s Championship side Durham, coming back from 3-1 down to level at 3-3, before winning 5-4 on penalties in the Continental Tyres Cup.

Tickets will be available to purchase on the day at the Broadfield Stadium at a price of £10 for adults, £8 for under-21s and over-65s, £7 for under-18s and £4 for under-10s.

Match Reports

WOMEN REPORT: ALBION 0 LIVERPOOL 1

23 September 2018

Geoff Penn
Fliss Gibbons in action against Liverpool.
  • Albion are beaten 1-0 by Liverpool
  • Rinsola Babajide scores the winner
  • Danielle Buet comes close late on for Albion
  • Albion are next in action away at Chelsea
Brighton & Hove Albion succumbed to their third consecutive 1-0 defeat at the start of the FA WSL season, after being beaten by Liverpool.
 
Rinsola Babajide’s 85th-minute strike was enough to give the Reds all three points, a result that was harsh on Albion, who more than held their own over the 90 minutes.
 
Hope Powell made one change to the side that lost 1-0 to Birmingham City, as Kayleigh Green replaced Ini Umotong in the starting line-up.
 
After a cagey opening quarter of an hour, Niamh Charles took aim from distance only to see her shot clear the crossbar.
 
Down the other end Kayleigh Green latched onto a loose ball inside the box, but the Wales international’s diving header went wide of the target.
 
Jessica Clarke managed to dispossess Victoria Williams in the Albion defence, however Lucy Gillett was on hand to make a comfortable save.
 
Danielle Buet was next to try her luck for the Seagulls and she saw her effort clear the far post.
 
But Albion’s defence were caught napping when Christine Murray was allowed to drift into the box from a short corner and saw her shot saved by Gillett.
 
The second half began in the same cautious manner as the first with little in the way of chances, before Kirsty Barton took aim with a speculative attempt from distance that was saved by Anke Preuss.
 
Christine Murray was next to take aim from distance for the visitors, but the shot did not trouble Gillett.
 
The Seagulls managed to work an opening down the left flank when Aileen Whelan found Green, and the latter’s angled attempt was saved by Anke Preuss.
 
Fliss Gibbons then did well to pick out Jodie Brett in a central position, but her tame effort was comfortably kept out by Preuss.

Despite Albion’s positive play Powell’s side were dealt a cruel blow when substitute Babajide fired in a strike from the edge of the box with just five minutes remaining.
 
Undeterred by the setback, a dangerous ball was delivered into the area down the other end and Green saw her header go over the bar.
 
Substitute Sophie Perry drifted a dangerous ball across the area late on, which Ini Umotong held up for Buet to strike, but the captain couldn’t make a decent connection and Liverpool claimed a 1-0 victory.
 
ALBION: Gillett; Barton, Rafferty, Williams, Gibbons; Brett, Buet, Natkiel; A. Whelan (Umotong 88), Green, Brazil (Perry 84).
 
SUBS NOT USED: Hartley (GK), Roe, F, Whelan, Peplow.
