Match Action: Man City Women v Brondby

It was another famous night for Man City Women.

It was another famous night for Man City Women.  

Their 1-0 win over Brondby in the last 16 of their inaugural Champions League campaign offered further evidence of how far the team has come under the guidance of manager Nick Cushing.

Teenager Keira Walsh was the hero, scoring the only goal of the game with 16 minutes remaining – but a string of fine saves from goalkeeper Karen Bardsley proved crucial in ensuring City head to Denmark next week for the second leg with a slender lead intact.

Brondby have reached the semi-finals of this competition on three occasions, but City were far from overawed by the occasion and will now feel confident they can reach the next stage of the competition.

Cushing has already delivered a league-and-cup double, but can City add more silverware to their cabinet?
