Aoife Mannion
Defender Aoife Mannion opened the scoring from the penalty spot for Birmingham

Birmingham City moved in to the top half of Women's Super League One with a home win over bottom-club Yeovil Town.

The hosts' Aoife Mannion capitalised on a handball in the area as she netted from the penalty spot early on.

Forward Rachel Williams had already hit the post for the hosts, who doubled their lead through Meaghan Sargeant's header moments before half-time.

England striker Ellen White's cool finish made it 3-0 just after the break to ensure a second straight Blues win.
