BRADFORD City Women came from behind against Wolverhampton Wanderers to record their first FA Women's Premier League win of the season.

Boosted by their League Cup victory the previous week, when they hit back from 2-0 down to beat Fylde on penalties, the Bantams scored four times in the last 12 minutes for an emphatic 4-1 Northern Division success.

Ellie White netted the equaliser that sparked the late flurry, although she admitted the performance was not as good as it should have been.

"We're buzzing after the result but the first half wasn't very good," said White.

"I don't really know why we started like that but we dug deep and we brought it back in the end.

"We showed what we were made of – that's what we're about – and to get a few goals in the team as well is really good."

Wolves took the lead midway through the first half, with Jade Cross neatly tucking away a well delivered free-kick.

They had the chance to double that advantage when they were awarded a penalty on the stroke of half-time but Nat Saunders, off the back of saving three spot-kicks in the cup shootout victory – denied Jen Anslow.

City came to life in the final stages, with White beating two Wolves defenders before lifting the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper.

Charlotte Stuart's header minutes later edged Bradford into the lead for the first time, before Abi Lee's 30-yard free-kick flew into the top corner to make it three.

Things got worse for Wolves as they were reduced to ten players when Anslow lashed out at Stuart in stoppage time, before Lee added insult to injury with a cool finish for her second of the game.

Regardless of the result, White believes there is plenty for City to improve on as they look to build on the foundations laid by back-to-back wins.

"We need to start sharper than we are doing because we're never going to win games against good teams starting slow," she said.

"There are major things that we need to improve on – but it was a good result in the end. It's our first win and we're really proud of it."
