WSL highlights: Birmingham City 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur came from behind to earn an FA Women's Super League draw against Birmingham City at Damson Park.

Abbi Grant headed Blues in front from Lucy Staniforth's cross on 22 minutes to set Blues on course for potentially only their second win in seven games.

But Spurs hit back to level in Solihull on 73 minutes.

Gemma Davison crossed for Kit Graham to scored her fourth goal of the season and earn Spurs their first draw in the top flight.

Promoted Tottenham had won three and lost four of their previous seven WSL matches.

Blues' point ended a run of three successive defeats in all competitions.
