Liverpool continued their five game unbeaten streak this weekend with an uneven performance against Blackburn Rovers. The Reds controlled the game for the first half but were unable to stop Blackburn from equalising via Georgia Walters strike. Liverpool walked away with a well-deserved point, and goalscorere Missy Bo Kearns said this after the match:
“It’s not the performance that we would have liked, but we have still got a point and we are unbeaten in five games. It was one of those scrappy games where you could not get hold of the ball. Our game has changed since Christmas. We are keeping the ball and passing, passing, passing.”
Her goal was once more a great example of that passing and the moments that the team are now creating.
“We played into their hands, really, by going long. If we had kept passing the ball, we might have had more of a chance,” she added. “Everything we were trying, it just wasn’t on. Working on our decision-making and how to beat a deep block will probably be what our focus is next week. I’m delighted to score another goal for the club. Hopefully there will be many more.
“It’s never nice losing a lead. At least we didn’t lose all of the points and came out with a draw. It’s just a case of putting things right next week and going for the three points again.”
Liverpool Women next face Lewes on Sunday, April 4.
