Women's Super League champions Manchester City came back from behind to draw with Birmingham City and ensure they ended the league season unbeaten.

Aoife Mannion scored an early penalty for the visitors after England defender Lucy Bronze fouled Andrine Hegerberg.

But the home side recovered from conceding only their fourth goal in 16 league matches this season to level the match shortly after half-time.

Demi Stokes caught out goalkeeper Ann-Katrin Berger with her left-wing cross.

Nick Cushing's side ended the WSL 1 campaign with 42 points from a maximum of 48 available, winning 13 and drawing three of their 16 league fixtures.
