    Man City 0-1 Birmingham

    Jo Potter

    England and Reading midfielder on BBC Red Button

    If I was playing for Birmingham City I'd be saying 'test the keeper early on' - and that's exactly what they've done.

  3. GOAL: Man City 0-1 Birmingham

    Lucy Quinn

    A couple minutes of madness have cost Manchester City dear.

    Firstly Rachel Williams scuffs wide for the away side from Jess Carter's pass, and then Birmingham's Lucy Quinn finds the corner with a lovely curling effort from outside the box.

    But it all came because the hosts failed to clear their lines.

  4. Post update

    Man City 0-0 Birmingham

    It's Manchester City who are having most of the territory early on, but Birmingham have started to string a few passes together themselves.

    Worth remembering that games between these sides are usually very closely fought...

    There's been a three-week break but the Women's Super League is back this afternoon and we have live text and video coverage of Manchester City v Birmingham City in WSL 1.

    Can the Citizens make it four wins from four to continue their 100% start to the season?
