Highlights: Women 2-0 Birmingham City

West Ham United Women clinched their first three points in the Continental Tyres League Cup group stage with a 2-0 victory over Birmingham City. 

In a rain-soaked match in east London, Kate Longhurst got the Hammers started after only 12 minutes, hooking the ball over Lucy Thomas to give her side the lead. 

Paul Konchesky’s side battled well and had chances to go two in front, but both Dagny Brynjarsdottir and Viviane Asseyi couldn’t get on the end of crosses from Lisa Evans. 

But the skipper would eventually put the icing on the cake, converting from the penalty spot after Jamie Finn had felled Asseyi in the area.

The win means that the Hammers move to the top of Group C, with one match remaining.
