Shaw proud of gutsy City display

Khadija 'Bunny' Shaw was pleased with how City 'ground out' an important 3-1 Barclays Women's Super League win over Tottenham Hotspur.

The Jamaican grabbed a hat-trick at the Academy Stadium to help Gareth Taylor's side claim a comeback victory.

Shaw has now found the net 24 times in all competitions, matching Nikita Parris' tally from 2018/19 for the most goals in a single season from a City player.

The victory also ensured we moved up to second in the WSL table, and the striker was pleased we could continue our impressive form as the final furlongs of the campaign approach.


"I'm feeling great," she said after her latest treble.

"We wanted to come out here and first and foremost get the win to build more confidence and momentum from the international break.

"That's what we did, so I'm delighted for that.

"Especially when we were one goal down I could hear the back four saying 'no more goals until half-time'.

"We've been in the situation before. Credit to the girls, we ground it out, stuck with the process and were victorious at the end of the day."
