UK City boss Taylor identifies reason his side didn't score more in Birmingham win last minute news
PremierLeague-News.Com- Chloe Kelly’s brace inspired City to a 4-0 win over struggling Birmingham in the Barclays FA WSL, a result that keeps the title race alive
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Manchester City Women head coach Gareth Taylor hailed Birmingham goalkeeper Hannah Hampton as the reason his side didn’t score more than four in an impressive win at the Academy Stadium. Chloe Kelly – who was later forced off with a concerning injury – set the tone for a comfortable afternoon with two goals in the opening 23 minutes. But Birmingham defended stoutly, with Hampton saving a Caroline Weir penalty, until Esme Morgan finally breached the away backline for her first senior goal with five minutes to go. Sam Mewis added a fourth in stoppage time, and while buoyed by City’s display, Taylor reckons the margin could have been wider were it not for Lionesses star Hampton. “Their goalkeeper had a bit of an inspired performance today so it could've been more, but we have to be happy with the three points on the board and scoring four goals,” said Taylor, 48. “I thought it was a good game, it's difficult when you're playing against a low block but we scored early on with a couple from Chloe. I thought we would have liked to have had a couple more goals potentially.

. But regardless of what happens Taylor is proud of his side’s endeavours throughout a season that has seen them boast a valiant home record and a fierce potency in attack. He added: “I've been told previously that we're the only team in the WSL that remain unbeaten at home this season which I think is very impressive. We've created a bit of a fortress here. "That takes us to 100 goals in all competitions this season so as much as we want more – and we always do – we have to be pleased with today's work."
