A pair of second-half goals by Fran Kirby helped Chelsea Ladies to a resounding 4-0 victory against Bristol City. Chelsea Ladies now need just a win over Birmingham City on Saturday to seal the Spring Series trophy.
The Blues led at half-time through Millie Bright’s well-directed header from a Maren Mjelde free-kick and then it was a finishing masterclass by Kirby after the break. The England international expertly netted our second from Ramona Bachmann’s assist and then benefited from a loose back pass to slide home our third.
A fine performance by Ramona Bachmann was rewarded late on with another superb goal after a good build-up play and our vastly superior goal difference means three points at Birmingham will bring the trophy home.
Chelsea Ladies will play Birmingham City on Saturday and hope to close out the Spring Series with our destiny in our own hands.
