Women's Super League One: Birmingham City Ladies 2-1 Liverpool Ladies

Kerys Harrop
Kerys Harrop's goal gave Birmingham a sixth league win of the season

Birmingham City moved above Liverpool into fourth in Women's Super League One with a 2-1 home win over the Reds.

After a goalless first half, debutant defender Corina Schroder slotted the hosts ahead after a spell of pressure.

Schroder then brought down Liverpool's Rosie White in the area and Katie Zelem levelled from the penalty spot.

But Kerys Harrop restored the Blues' lead on 70 minutes, nodding in from Jessica Carter's long throw, to inflict Liverpool's first WSL 1 loss since May.
