Montemurro – We had to draw them out in wide areas

We returned to winning ways in the Women’s Super League on Thursday night as we beat Liverpool 3-2 on the road.

The Reds boasted the WSL’s fifth strongest defence coming into this fixture, and they initially took the lead, but some impressive wide play and passing combinations saw us fight back to secure all three points and keep our title hopes alive.

We spoke to Joe Montemurro after the final whistle - and this is what he said:

on all three goals coming from crosses…
Their full backs were very aggressive in terms of coming inside and following our wingers so we found the space out wide and we worked a lot to that.
