Never thought I'd be here - Kirsty
 Women's Football News 14 Nov 2013
 
Never thought I'd be here - Kirsty - 14 Nov 2013 - Women's Football NewsKirsty Linnett helped lead Birmingham City into the UEFA Women's Champions League quarter finals with two goals in their 5-2 second leg victory over FK Zorkiy Krasnogorsk at St Andrew's and this capped a remarkable turnaround in fortunes for the striker. 
 
A year ago, Kirsty's career appeared to be in the balance following a serious knee injury but the 20-year-old has established herself as the Blues' first choice striker after an impressive first season in the FA WSL - something that she would never have envisaged at the start of the year.
 
"I'd just laugh and go 'no way'," laughed Kirsty when asked if she could have seen things happening twelve months ago. "Obviously I've worked as hard as I could when I was injured but I never ever thought I'd be here this day so it's just unbelievable - I can't believe it."
 
It was a perfect day overall for Birmingham as they brushed aside their Russian opponents to reach the last eight for the first time in their history. "It was amazing to play at St Andrews and to put in a performance like that was really good for all of us," said Kirsty.
 
"We wanted the first goal and then the second. It was unfortunate that we switched off a bit for their two goals but we pulled it back and showed how good we are."
 
"The first one was a rebound from Issy's shot and for the second, I took it round the keeper," she said when recalling her goals. "I am really pleased on a personal note as I had a tough year but it's good to be back and especially with the Blues, I am loving it here."
 
Now Kirsty and her team mates can look forward to the draw for the quarter finals and she is not too worried about the prospect of facing the likes of Wolfsburg, Lyon or even Arsenal.
 
"It would be good to play Barcelona and that is probably my preference but anyone really, bring it on!" she laughed.
 
"There are very strong sides and I personally wouldn't want to get them in the next round but whatever it is, we've done so well to get there and we'll give them a good game."
