Coventry earn Birmingham praise
 Women's Football News 13 Aug 2012
 
Coventry earn Birmingham praise - 13 Aug 2012 - Women's Football NewsCoventry City were beaten 3-1 by Birmingham City in their friendly match at Stratford's DCS Stadium on Sunday. 
 
The Sky Blues took a deserved lead into the break thanks to Courtney Sweetman-Kirk's eighth minute strike. But a strong second half fight back from this season's FA Women's Cup winners eventually unlocked the Sky Blues defence and goals from Jo Potter, Jodie Taylor and Hannah George were enough to sink Coventry who weren't without their own chances.
 
Cheryl Edwards and Courtney Sweetman-Kirk both came close late on but Blues goalkeeper Marie Hourihan produced two superb saves to deny the duo.
 
Coventry manager Paul Cudby took plenty of positives from the defeat. "To be one-nil up against a Super League side at half time is a great achievement," he said. "Birmingham are a very good side, they deserved the win but I feel we deserve a lot more credit than the 3-1 scoreline suggests.
 
"Certainly on another day, maybe with the rub of the green the scoreline could have been different."
 
Meanwhile England star and Nuneaton girl Laura Bassett has tipped Coventry City to have a great season in the upcoming FA Women's Premier League National Division. The former Sky Blue, who now captains recent Birmingham, was very impressed with what she saw on Sunday afternoon.
 
"They're a very strong side and caused us a lot of problems," she said. "They have some real good pace and threatening players that are definite match winners.
 
"We put them under pressure for long periods and they showed us they're strong at the back and with keeper Sue Wood behind them they are very difficult to break down."
 
Likewise Birmingham manager Dave Parker spoke of his admiration of Coventry's side, adding: "They will do very well, obviously they have strengthened again and a lot of our players have gone out there to gain experience and it's fantastic to see them coming on so well.
 
"We have great links between the two sides and wish them nothing but the best."
