Can Blues Ladies make the Continental Cup Final?

Birmingham City Ladies face Arsenal Ladies today in the Continental Cup semi final at Boreham Wood FC hoping they can continue their recent trend and win against much higher rated opposition.

Arsenal Ladies have pedigree, having won three of the last four Continental Cup titles on offer and will be expected to win the game having beaten Blues Ladies in the League 1-0 last weekend to help them finish third in the table.

Blues Ladies, who finished 6th had a rocky start to the season but returned following the World Cup break to much better form, winning five games in a row prior to the defeat last weekend.

For Blues Ladies, much focus on their Three Lionesses duo of Jo Potter and Karen Carney as the heartbeat of the team; however it would be foolhardy to overlook the defensive partnership of Kerys Harrop and Aoife Mannion which has become the rock Dave Parker’s outfit have built their current form on.

Indeed, in the five victories prior to the Arsenal game last weekend Blues Ladies didn’t concede a single goal and they were unlucky to lose by a single goal last weekend with Sophie Baggaley again in excellent form, deputising for the injured Becky Spencer.

The match is live on BT Sport from 2:30pm BST and I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing the Ladies well in their hunt to bring more silverware home with the name of Blues on it.
