City and City finish goalless
 Women's Football News 24 Feb 2014
 
City and City finish goalless - 24 Feb 2014 - Women's Football NewsThe international friendly between Scottish Champions Glasgow City and English giants Manchester City finished in stalemate as the two sides enjoyed a competitive 0-0 draw at Petershill Park. 
 
It was Glasgow City's second pre-season in seven days friendly against top flight English opposition and the home side battled hard against some of the most famous names in the women's game, despite a decimated squad which was missing 11 first team players.
 
Notwithstanding the scoreline, it was an entertaining match, with both sides having chances to get the vital goal. The power, height and strength of the visitors almost the created the opener when English international and former Arsenal star Steph Houghton got her head to two corners in the opening 15 minutes. Glasgow City almost scored at the other end with chances for Denise O'Sullivan and Emma Black in particular forcing a series of scrambles in the Manchester box.
 
City keeper and match sponsor ng homes Player of the Match Lee Alexander had to look lively twice in the second half, saving at the feet of England stars Toni Duggan and Isobel Christiansen, while Glasgow City's 18-year-old Abbi Grant had the home side's best effort but shot straight at England and Manchester City number 1 Karen Bardsley after brilliantly forcing her way in between the Manchester back line.
 
Commenting on the match, a happy Glasgow City Head Coach Eddie Wolecki Black said: "Considering that, because of a horrendous injury list, we were on the verge of pulling out of this match and the one last week against Everton, I am delighted we have been able to play two very high level games and been competitive.
 
"With the amount of changes made to the side due to injuries and departures, we were always going to suffer at the top end of the park. All of our focus therefore has been on defensive shape.
 
"To come through the game with a clean sheet and a good competitive game under our belt makes me very satisfied indeed."
 
Next Sunday, Glasgow City will be having a fans day at Petershill Park, due to having no competitive fixture in the first round of the League Cup. The Scottish Champions will play a bounce game, followed by a chance for the fans to get pictures and autographs with all the players along with a question and answering session with some of City's biggest stars.
