Sam Mewis, however see’s some positives as she marches along squarely in City’s plans for the future. She told mancity.com-
“We have a lot of positives to draw from the game and we get to go again on Thursday,” the midfielder asserted.
“At the end of the game, we talked about continuing to stick to our principles throughout the game.
“What we were doing in the first half was working so we just needed more patience and discipline to stick to the game we know how to play.
“It was definitely a game of two halves.
“We came out really strong in the first half and score two goals and United did well to fight back.
“We’re disappointed we didn’t keep the lead but they’re a great team and it’s a great rivalry.
“I do give United credit. They did a great job in fighting back to score so it was testament to the Derby and the rivalry.
“I’m definitely feeling the animosity - I was definitely fighting back at the end and I really had a feeling of pride for City.
“We wanted to win and I’m looking forward to Thursday for another opportunity to try and beat them.”
The City women have had a good season and getting near the top of FAWSL and competing in the UWCL will only help attract stars more. Mewis knows the future is bright and so should the fans.
