Preview: Blues v Manchester United

Blues' in form striker is looking forward to Sunday's Barclays FA WSL clash against Manchester United. 

Abbi Grant’s goals have been like London buses – and the Blues frontrunner is determined to keep running a regular service.

The summer signing bagged her first in Royal Blue with a looping header in the 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur and has since made it three goals in as many matches, notching the second in a 2-0 triumph at Bristol City and then in the midweek FA Women’s Continental League Cup defeat to Manchester United.

Grant’s prowess comes as no surprise on the back of 47 goals across two spells with Glasgow City which yielded four league titles.

Eight in twelve followed during a Super League success with Anderlecht and she now has her sights set on replicating that form for Blues.

“I am just buzzing to be scoring goals, it is what I love doing and if it helps the team that is all that matters,” said Grant.

“Since getting that first goal I feel more confident going into games, knowing I can hit the back of the net in the Barclays FA Women's Super League. 

“It is always hard when you’re on a run without goals, it is a totally different feeling when you know you are scoring.”

Grant will attempt to add to her sequence when Manchester United visit Solihull again on Sunday (2pm), this time in the Barclays FA WSL.

“Unfortunately we could not get a result on Wednesday but we feel like we should have and that gives us confidence going into Sunday,” she added.

“It was a kick in the teeth to go behind so early, we had to grow into the game and the outcome could have been totally different in the end.

“Still, we created chances and could have got something from it. It is another important game for us and hopefully we can get ourselves the win before going into the Christmas break.”
