Villa Women Weekly: Attacking changes and Kenza Dali's return help Aston Villa bag first league win

After a tough run of fixtures, Aston Villa finally had a chance on the road to take points from recently promoted Bristol City. The Robins, who have proven a tough opponent so far in the competition, even causing the likes of Arsenal to struggle, were the ones who stood between Carla Ward's side and their first win of the season. Although the backline remained unchanged (helping to build their relationship with new goalkeeper Daphne van Domselaar), Ward implemented three changes from last week including Canadian international Adriana Leon getting a well-deserved start in place of Alisha Lehmann. The midfield trio also got a reshuffle, with captain Rachel Corsie coming back into the start XI in a bid to tighten and control what has been a problematic area in recent weeks for the team.
