Another 0-0 for Chelsea Women

 

…is give us a goal!

To finish one league match goalless is unfortunate. To complete two on the trot without score smacks of carelessness.

Manager Emma Hayes put on a brave face after Chelsea Women drew 0-0 with Bristol City, but there’s a worry that the tidal wave of games over the next fortnight is taking its toll on the squad.

Vixens keeper Sophie Baggaley, who became a full-timer at Bristol after spending a year on loan from Birmingham, kept a clean sheet to frustrate the Blues after deadlock in the opening FA Women’s Super League on the first weekend of the season against Manchester City at Kingsmeadow.

“You need patience,” said the coach at the end after a night in which the closest Chelsea came to scoring was a Ramona Bachmann thud against the Bristol bar.

“We also need to recognise that, in our attempts to break team down, we can’t turn [the ball] over like we did,” said Emma. “And we turned it over too often.”

Chelsea face their fourth away game on the spin at the weekend when they visit Everton, then there’s a night of European action to savour under the floodlights at Kingsmeadow when Sarajevo – comprehensively outplayed in Bosnia – make the trek to England.

The match on Wednesday September 26 kicks off at 7.30pm, and tickets are still available.
