WORCESTER City Women had to settle for a point from their West Midlands Regional Women's Football League Premier encounter at Shrewsbury Town Women on Sunday. 

It was a tale of two penalties in the end as Olivia Mitcham's early spot-kick was cancelled out when Alicia Robinson kept her cool to convert from 12 yards five minutes from time.

City had a glorious chance to extend their lead in first-half stoppage time but the in-form Mitcham was denied from close-range by Shrewsbury keeper Phoebe Carter.

It was a tight second-half in which few opportunities were created. The hosts tried their luck on a couple of occasions but nothing too troubling for City keeper Sofia Stolt. 

It looked as if City had done enough to seal the three points and keep their sport at the top of the table but after the referee awarded the home side a penalty, Robinson stepped up and slotted past Stolt to secure a point.

The result, coupled with Lye Town Ladies' thumping 7-0 win at Knowle Ladies, Lye replaced City at the summit. 

Worcester return to Sixways on Sunday (November 5, 2pm) to face Burton Albion Ladies in a cup fixture.
