‘It’s good to have a point on the board’ - Baggaley

Today’s Player of the Match Sophie Baggaley thoroughly enjoyed Bristol City Women’s season opener at Ashton Gate Stadium.

The Robins took on Brighton & Hove Albion in their first match of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League and goalkeeper Baggaley put in a brilliant performance saving a penalty, which saw Oxtoby’’s side take away a point this afternoon.

Speaking after the 0-0 draw, she said: “A clean sheet is great for me personally and for the team. We have a point on the board to kick start the season and it’s something to build on.”

This was the keeper’s first match at Ashton Gate, and she believes that it’s been great for momentum

“It was brilliant to play at Ashton Gate; I think it was a great occasion and all the girls enjoyed it”, she added, “it’s important that we keep momentum and make sure that the crowd come to the rest of our matches this season.”

Next up Bristol City take on Everton and Baggaley knows that it’s important to remain positive.

“I can’t wait, Everton will be a tough game but we got two good results from them last season so hopefully we can continue that this season.”
