Matchday: Liverpool Ladies v. Bristol Academy

New, comments

Liverpool's women can seal the Women's Super League title with a draw or win today, as they face second-place Bristol Academy at Halton Stadium.

Alex Livesey

Most will be spending the early part of the day waiting for the men's squad to kick off at the Stadium of Light, but there's also plenty to be excited about with the Liverpool Ladies side--they're set to face Bristol Academy on the final day of the Women's Super League season and need only a draw to secure the title, while Bristol sit two points back in second place and will need all three points to be crowned champions. This is one that surely deserves attention, especially considering where the Ladies squad has been over the past few years.

From Anna Kessel in the Guardian:

The championship is Liverpool's to lose in the game at the Halton Stadium in Widnes, a remarkable thought given that before Matt Beard became manager last summer the Merseyside club had finished bottom of the league two seasons in a row, winning two games in total. Under Beard's stewardship, however, they have executed an impressive turnaround, firing in 44 goals, and prompting his name to appear in the running for the England job following Hope Powell's departure.

Well done to Matt Beard and his squad to this point, and let's hope the afternoon ends with Liverpool lifting the trophy.
