Chelsea and Birmingham finish level
 Women's Football News 15 Apr 2013

Chelsea and Birmingham City shared the spoils in their opening FA WSL encounter at Staines. 
Birmingham started with a bang - Issy Christiansen had a shot saved inside the first 40 seconds - and they were desperately unlucky not to score when Jade Moore hit the post with a 12th minute effort, with follow up shots from Rachel Williams and Jo Potter well blocked by the Chelsea defence.
Chelsea grew in confidence after that lucky escape and broke the deadlock just four minutes later. Drew Spence found Dunia Susi down the right hand side and the England international's excellent cross was met by Sofia Jakobsson, whose first time effort trickled over the line.
But Birmingham found themselves back on level terms before the half hour mark and it was all thanks to a spark of genius from Williams.
The England striker picked up the ball 30 yards from goal and sent a rocket past Nicola Davies and into the back of the net via the underside of the bar.
Both sides had chances to win the game from then on - Edda Gardarsdottir came closest for Chelsea with a superb 30-yard half volley that crashed off the bar, while Williams and Kirsty Linnett nearly netted for Birmingham - but in the end they had to settle for a point apiece. 
Chelsea: Nicola Davies, Dunia Susi, Olina Vidarsdottir (sub Claire Rafferty 45mins), Katie Holtham, Drew Spence (sub Laura Coombs 69mins), Sophie Ingle, Edda Gardarsdottir, Danielle Buet, Eniola Aluko (sub Kate Longhurst 78mins), Helen Ward, Sofia Jakobsson.

Birmingham City: Marie Hourihan, Chelsea Weston, Rachel Unitt, Jade Moore (sub Melissa Lawley 75mins), Kerys Harrop, Laura Bassett, Issy Christiansen, Emily Westwood (sub Kirsty Linnett 67mins), Rachel Williams, Emily Simpkins, Jo Potter.
