Academy gatecrash City's party
 Women's Football News 21 Apr 2014
 
Manchester City 0 Bristol Academy 2 (Matthews 11, James 17)
Manchester City lost their first ever home fixture in the FA Women's Super League as they fell to defeat at the hands of Bristol Academy at the Manchester Regional Arena. 
 
Jaz Matthews' deflected effort and a second from midfielder Angharad James condemned City to their second defeat in succession.
 
City had the first chance to break the deadlock in the eighth minute as Toni Duggan spotted Mary Earps off her line but could not lift her effort enough.
 
Three minutes later, Bristol Academy took a shock lead after a looping corner evaded Andrea Worrall and Matthews poked home via a deflection off City captain Steph Houghton.
 
Jill Scott had a chance to fire in an immediate equaliser but Earps superbly pushed her effort wide.
The hosts were left to rue that miss as James doubled the Vixens' lead in the 17th minute following nifty footwork from Laura Del Rio.
 
The Blues started strongly after the break as Houghton had a long range effort saved and a sweeping move on 58 minutes finished with Krystle Johnston lashing her effort over the bar.
 
From then on Academy looked comfortable and almost made it three in the closing stages when Del Rio hit the post and Worrall saved Natalia Sanchon's follow up. 
 
Manchester City: Andrea Worrall, Emma Lipman, Steph Houghton, Chelsea Nightingale, Steph Marsh, Jess Holbrook (sub Lynda Shepherd 60mins), Jill Scott, Betsy Hassett, Issy Christiansen, Krystle Johnston (sub Natasha Flint 60mins), Toni Duggan. Subs not used: Kim Turner, Alex Brooks, Nicki Harding.

Bristol Academy: Mary Earps, Grace McCatty, Corinne Yorston, Jaz Matthews, Jemma Rose, Sophie Ingle, Natalia Pablos Sanchon, Angharad James (sub Ann Marie Heatherson 88mins), Nikki Watts, Laura Del Rio, Natasha Harding. Subs not used: Loren Dykes, Ellie Curson, Frankie Brown, Vera Bernabe Payol.
