Disappointing defeat for Glasgow City
 Women's Football News 8 Oct 2014
 
Disappointing defeat for Glasgow City - 8 Oct 2014 - Women's Football NewsGlasgow City suffered a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Polish Champions Medyk Konin thanks to two second half goals from Ewa Pajor and Alexsandra Sikora. 
 
City started the match strongly with Morgan Marlborough going closest in the opening stages with two early efforts. City put a number of crosses into the box, but Konin goalkeeper Anna Szymanska dealt with everything that came her way. The hosts best chance of the first period came down the right as Aleksandra Sikora strode into the box before hitting a powerful effort just over the bar.
 
There was also controversy in the first half as City's Marlborough appeared to be fouled by the last defender at the edge of the box as she pulled away for a shot, but the referee much to the away side's frustration, waved play on.
 
City had their best chance to take the lead on 53 minutes. A foul on Denise O'Sullivan earned City a free kick and Lauren McMurchie's ball met the run of Eilish McSorley, but Szymanska pulled off the save of the match to deny the City defender. Less than 60 seconds later the home side took the lead when star striker Ewa Pajor finished expertly into the bottom corner after a diagonal ball from the left hand side.
 
Szymanska did well yet again as she turned a McMurchie shot around the post before Konin hit the killer blow on 64 minutes when Aleksandra Sikora found fortune when her mis-hit cross outwitted Lee Alexander in the City net to give her side a crucial 2-0 advantage at the mid-point in this last 32 tie.
 
City Head Coach Eddie Wolecki Black was disappointed with the result and know his side have a lot to do back at Airdrie Excelsior Stadium next Wednesday. He said: "We certainly never performed and in football, especially at Champions League level you need to perform. We had chances but unfortunately we never took them when they came along. The first goal is very disappointing as when there are multiple errors it will end up in the back of your net and that is what happened. The second one was one of those things that happen. The girl has went to cross it and it has gone in off the back post.
 
"However, if ever we needed motivation to turn this around we just needed to look at their celebrations at the final whistle. The crowd was the 12th player for them tonight without a doubt and I hope we can get the same numbers and noise behind us next week as it really does make a difference."
 
Glasgow City take on Medyk Konin in the return leg on Wednesday 15th October, 7.30pm. Entry is £5 adults, £2 kids and tickets can be bought in advance at www.glasgowcityfc.co.uk or at the turnstile on the night.
