Brighton Women 1-2 Manchester City highlights – Bunny Shaw scores brace! by Michelle
Khadija Shaw struck the winner in the 89th-minute as Manchester City overcame Brighton to keep their Women’s Super League title hopes alive.
Shaw, the WSL’s top-scorer this season with 15 goals, finished off a slick move to put Man City in front after 21 minutes before Elisabeth Terland levelled for Brighton just 12 minutes later.
City were the dominant side for much of the game but despite spending the majority of the second half in Brighton territory, looked like they would have to settle for only one point.
Shaw collected a loose ball just inside the penalty area and hit a low left-footed shot past a helpless Megan Walsh in the Brighton goal on the 89th minute.
The win extends City’s unbeaten run to 13 WSL games and puts them level on points with rivals Manchester United in second place, just two points behind leaders Chelsea, although Gareth Taylor’s side have played a game more.
Brighton remain in 11th with eight points and face a battle to retain their top-flight status.
