Birmingham City Women will be hoping to record back-to-back victories against West Ham United Women on Sunday afternoon.

Following their 3-1 win over Everton Ladies, Blues are looking to continue where they left off on Wednesday evening with a second successive victory in the FA Women’s Super League.

Hayley Ladd scored her first goal of the season with an audacious looping strike on the half volley, while Ellen White notched a brace with two clinical finishes.

Manager Marta Tejedor was impressed with her side’s performance against the Toffees and is hoping for the same again this weekend.

She said: “I take every game at a time; we look at each game individually, but we will be hoping for a similar result against West Ham.”

In the reverse fixture, Blues cruised to a 3-0 victory over the Hammers. Fresh off the back of her second start for England, Lucy Staniforth pulled the strings in the middle of the park and reaped her rewards with her first goal in the league for the Club.

Kerys Harrop and Emma Follis were also on the scoresheet.

Goalkeeper Hannah Hampton enjoyed a successful night at Southport FC, saving a penalty to deny Inessa Kaagman.

Tejedor has been impressed with the young ‘keeper since her arrival at the helm in January.

She said: “I have been very impressed with her. She has been brilliant since I have been at the Club and I’m incredibly proud.

“Hannah has been played really well for Blues, but also while she was away with England so I just knew she was going to save the penalty.”
