Bristol City Women 0-2 Liverpool Ladies

Bethany England's volley
Bethany England's textbook volley was her 13th goal of the season for Liverpool

Liverpool Ladies moved into the WSL 1 top four with victory against a dogged Bristol City Women side.

The hosts were without a win in six games, but held their own in a tight and goalless first period in which both sides created chances.

However, they were behind within minutes after the break, as Bethany England hammered a stunning volley past Sophie Baggaley for the opener.

England then tumbled in the box and Alex Greenwood slotted in the penalty.

On-loan Chelsea midfielder-forward England extended her tally to 13 for the season with the effort, and might have had a hat-trick had Baggaley not denied further chances.

Bristol City had their own opportunities, with Lauren Hemp, Yana Daniels and Julie Biesmans all going close in the second-half, and remain ninth in the table with just two wins from 12.
