Leicester City beat Birmingham City on sudden-death penalties following a 0-0 draw, to top their FA Women’s Continental League Cup group.

Birmingham had the best chance to take maximum points in the 90 minutes but Kirstie Levell saved Mollie Green’s spot-kick.

The sides could not be separated with a point a piece, so it went to penalties for the bonus point.

At five penalties each, sudden-death saw the hosts’ Connie Scofield hit the bar and Foxes’ 19-year-old Aimee Everett convert.
