Crystal Palace announced on their Twitter that everyone who attends the game this Sunday will have to pre-register attendance due to the club's COVID protocols.
Also, it appears that; for this game at least; attendance is free!?

So for those who planned on going, now you know! The game is live on FA Player as well...

Free? That's one way to bring the crowds back. I wonder if the idea will catch on.

Probably as a one-off, just as a way to say thank you to their fans. Women's football isn't expensive like the top levels of men's football is. I've already got my season card for City Women, which doubles as a membership card when it comes to City men & Bears rugby 🙂

Anyone who buys a matchday ticket is now entered into a prize draw to win a behind-the-scenes tour at the RHPC! I can't enter as I'm a City Women season card holder, so don't need to buy a ticket.

For those buying tickets, this is more of an incentive!

Caught the last 15 mins if first half.  Big distances from to back…our midfield unable to engage theirs or be in with a chance of picking up loose balls. Don’t pass to players close by, every pass seems to need to be between the lines.  Harrison on her own in the 10 position, often having to come deep.

I watched from 30-60 minutes and the lack of quality was evident. Abi Harrison looked like a footballer, the rest meh! 

Good to hear they came back to win, Lewes looked equally poor.

I saw the second half. 

Thought the defence looked ok - pace and intelligence. 
 

Dodgy keeper, midfield and attack pretty poor.

How does the 507 crowd compare to what they used to normally get at Filton? What were the fan facilities at the HPC like today?

There was one food/drink outlet with no vegetarian options I was disappointed that no season ticket discount but burger was OK, parking was good in qeh next door which is a 2 min walk. The view was very good and you could sit or stand around half the pitch.

The winning penalty from Simran Jhamat.

City now up to 4th in Championship table.

"Simi Simi Simi Jhamat after midnight..."

(If you heard that chant, it started from me...)

 

Saw you today, Shahan, that is if you have your name on the back of your shirt!! (I think). I was in the press box to the left of the tunnel as you come out....

Was concerned when City went one down but fair play, they didn't fold. Abi's goal was a peach and caught everyone out. Pen was a pen for me and three points in the bag should give them confidence ahead of next week.
