D-M, Nat & Shahan are back for 2022, and console each other after a bruising 2-0 defeat against a physical and formidable Charlton Athletic side.
Our visitors could well be this season’s bogey team: they beat us in the reverse fixture with a cruel, last-minute winner. They beat us comprehensively today in front a record-breaking crowd of 956 at the Robins High Performance Centre.
In truth, the Vixens were out-smarted and out-muscled in every area of the pitch. No one in red had a good game, although Fran Bentley pulled off some stellar saves.
This fixture has come at the end of a big week for City. Our season kicked into life again last Sunday with a 1-0 away win against Blackburn. Then there was a hard mid-week 3-1 loss against WSL high-flyers Man City in the Conti-Cup quarter final (which we also cover in this episode).
You couldn’t blame the team for being a bit tired. Obviously that's not an excuse, but it does put the performance into context.
Perhaps the biggest winner this weekend was Bristol City Football Club itself. The partnership with Her Game Too undoubtedly helped drive that record-breaking crowd to the RHPC. Let’s hope those supporters come back and get behind the team in the weeks to come. We’d love to see it!
Onwards to Southampton FC in the FA Cup 4th Round next Sunday!
