Sutton Coldfield Town Women 6 - 0 Worcester City Women
A late rally for Sutton Coldfield in the remaining 20-minutes saw a scoreline that was harsh on City on Sunday afternoon.
It’s the first time William’s side have suffered back-to-back defeats this season, with both being played away from home.
Sutton Coldfield threatened within the first five minutes with Johnson clearing an effort off the line. City continued to defend well and frustrated the home side, who have had a fantastic start to the season.
However, the deadlock was broken in the 20th minute with the Sutton Coldfield striker curling a shot into the top left corner which gave the returning Whitbury no chance of saving. City played some good football and caused the hosts some trouble on the counter attack. However, half time came with City 0-1 down.
Unfortunately, Worcester never really got going in the second half, with no real attempt on goal being created, except from D’oyen Fitchett’s flick on that went narrowly wide, just after the hour mark.
The pressure finally took hold as Sutton Coldfield were awarded a penalty, which they converted well to double their advantage. Straight after kick-off, Sutton Coldfield won back possession and got in behind the defence and tucked a shot into the bottom right corner.
Sutton Coldfield went on to score another three goals in quick succession, showing their quality in front of goal. Despite the defeat, the first half display was particularly positive for City and provides a valuable platform to learn from.
As always, thank you for your support. City will look to bounce back from successive defeats at another away game vs Kidderminster Harriers on Sunday.
