Birmingham City are finally going home with the club’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture against Bristol City on Sunday being given the green light to be staged at the SportNation.bet Stadium in Solihull.
The Blues have not played in Solihull since they battled to a goalless draw with Brighton & Hove Albion in mid-January. Games against Manchester City, Arsenal and Everton were switched to St George’s Park as a result of a consultation of the League’s Executive Operations Committee (EOC) who determined that Birmingham City’s home ground at Solihull Moors FC did not meet requirements in the Rules and Regulations of the League.
There is finally some good news for Carla Ward and her squad with the club today confirming that Sunday’s key home fixture against Bristol City will be staged in the familiar surroundings of the SportNation.bet Stadium.
Birmingham City go into Sunday’s fixture two points and two places above opponents Bristol City who have hauled themselves out of the relegation zone in the last couple of weeks. One more win for Ward’s Blues could be enough to see the club retain their top flight for another year, although they are winless in their last nine games.
Ward’s side ended a sequence of three straight defeats when they fought out a spirited 2-2 draw at West Ham United last time out.
