Liverpool Women 0-2 Birmingham City Women

Emma Follis of Birmingham City
Emma Follis netted her fourth goal since joining Birmingham last season

Birmingham City kept up their push on the top two in WSL and piled pressure on Liverpool with an away win.

First-half goals from Emma Follis and Connie Scofield sent them on their way to a second win in as many games.

Follis put Blues 1-0 up inside three minutes with a neatly taken half-volley from Meaghan Sargeant's cross.

Scofield doubled the lead when she coolly finished a one-on-one and secured a win that leaves Liverpool on a run of four straight defeats.
