From the very first time I arrived at the stadium, I thought it was wonderful and I can’t wait to watch my team play there on Sunday

Birmingham City Women will be going for three in three as they host Liverpool Women at St. Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium.

In their final home game of the season, Blues face the Reds with both teams full of confidence after their last fixtures.

Following two back-to-back wins, Marta Tejedor’s side will be hoping to extend their winning run in the league with two final games remaining.

With just two points separating themselves and third-placed Chelsea Women, Blues are setting their sights further up the league starting with Sunday’s game at St. Andrew’s which will be “a special moment” for the manager.

She said: “I’m very excited, but it’s also a big responsibility. It’s a game in our stadium and we should play in a way that shows we deserve to play there. We’re going to win the game."

“From the very first time I arrived at the stadium, I thought it was wonderful and I can’t wait to watch my team play there on Sunday."

“Compared to Solihull Moors, it is a bigger pitch which we will enjoy. For us, the bigger the pitch the better for the team who wants to build up from the back and keep possession, so it will benefit us."

“It will be a special moment for me, but the most important thing is getting the three points in front of our fans.”

The last time Blues faced Liverpool at Prenton Park, Emma Follis and Connie Scofield were on target in a 2-0 win.

However, Tejedor doesn’t expect the same game and emphasized that her staff have been spending hours looking into the finer details that will hopefully make the difference.

She said: “They have come off the back of a big win, 5-2 against Bristol, so they will be coming with a positive attitude. But as always, we have studied our opponents to find out how to beat them. We’re looking for the weaknesses to exploit them.

“Every team who comes to play us wants to beat us, so we’ll be prepared for that.”
