Everton Women took the lead twice against Bristol City but were unable to hold on for victory in their 2-2 Women’s Super League clash.

This draw prevented Everton from both moving up to 9th in the league and claiming their first home victory of the season.

Bristol City stay bottom of the table in 12th but move to four points alongside West Ham United.

The Blues dominated the early stages of the game.

An early first goal for Italian striker Martina Piemonte put Everton 1-0 up inside the first five minutes.

This domination continued, but Everton were unable to capitalise on their chances, leaving them vulnerable before the break.

Bristol City maintained a high press towards the end of the half, and the ball broke to Amy Rodgers on the edge of the Everton box who smashed it in to make it 1-1.

Everton continued to pose a threat to the Robins after the break, with captain Megan Finnigan firing home to give the Blues the lead early in the second half.

But the hosts once again failed to hold onto their lead, as Amalie Thestrup equalised late on.

Blues coach Brian Sørensen, speaking to @EvertonWomen on X, said: “It was hard to get any good control of the game.

“We should have taken our chances, we had enough to lead by more, but we didn’t.”

Opposing coach Lauren Smith seemed more content with the result.

Speaking to @bristolcitywfc on X, she said: “I’m really pleased about the fact that we’ve come from behind twice.”

Everton travel to take on in-form Aston Villa on November 26 and will be hoping to win their first in five.
