WSL highlights: Liverpool 1-1 Bristol City

Liverpool and Bristol City could not be separated as both sides were left searching for their first win of the Women's Super League season.

Ebony Salmon had given Bristol City an early lead with a speculative strike for the only goal before the break.

But Liverpool hung in the contest and were rewarded when they drew level from the spot in the second half.

Mel Lawley slotted their first league goal this season after Rinsola Babajide was brought down by Loren Dykes.
