City travelled to the Cherry Red Records Stadium aiming to extend our unbeaten run to ten matches in all competitions.
Victory would also move Gareth Taylor's side to within two points of the WSL's Champions League places.

In a prelude to March's Continental Cup final between the two sides, everything pointed towards an exciting clash in the WSL, which you can watch in its entirety on CITY+.
