Carter praises Birmingham’s shock loss to Arsenal as Reading beat Leicester to go sixth

DARREN CARTER praised Birmingham for ‘beating the drums’ against Arsenal after they stunned the league leaders at St Andrew’s.

The Midlands outfit caused the biggest shock this term, beating the Gunners 2-0 to win their first WSL game in 14 months.

The surprise result has seen the leaders concede three points for the first time this season with Jonas Eidevall slamming his team’s performance.

And it led to Birmingham’s first win since a loss to Liverpool in October 2019 when Eidevall suffered his first defeat.

After the game, Carter, who went above and beyond on goal, said: “That performance epitomizes them as a group.

“I asked them to empty the tank and they gave us everything. They put on a top performance against a top team. ”

Birmingham scored the winner in the third minute with Libby Smith locking in a pass from the edge of the box.

And the home team doubled the lead near the first half with Veatriki Sarri’s goal into the top corner.

The second half saw the Gunners attempt to organize a fight with Kim Little, following a sophisticated tackle from Gemma Lawley.

But their rivals Brum managed to secure a memorable win as Arsenal missed the chance to extend their lead over Chelsea at the top of the table.

Eidevall, the next team to face Reading, said: “We were too slow to attract the number of players to the next round.

“What we haven’t done – which we’ve done so well so far this season – is predict moments and work well together as a team.

“I saw some players sprinting, some jogging and some walking to get into position. Our players on the ball should make better decisions. ”

Elsewhere, Natasha Dowie helped the Royals have 6 unbeaten matches with a narrow defeat against Leicester.

The forward who missed a pen in the first half sent a lob past Demi Lambourne for the Royals to seal a 1-0 win to go sixth.

And as a result, the Foxes returned to the final position of WSL.
