Tue 29 December 2020 | 20:46

A magnificent display by Melbourne City goalkeeper Teagan Micah earned the W-League champions a point in a goalless draw against Brisbane Roar in the W-league's opening fixture.

Teagan Micah

made her W-League debut for

Melbourne City

with a clean sheet to deny a dominant

Brisbane Roar

in the season opener.

Micah made some important saves in Tuesday's clash at Dolphin Stadium and her superb performance ensured that City's long unbeaten run now stretches to 17 matches despite the fact that they have lost players such as

Matildas Steph Catley

,

Lydia Williams

,

Emily van Egmond

,

Kyah Simon

and

Ellie Carpenter

from last year’s team.

The point was a welcome one for City coach

Rado Vidosic

’s refashioned team.

"I need a six-pack after this game. They were good, I thought our effort and resilience was fantastic but they had some good quality in the midfield and they controlled the game,"

Vidosic said

.

"Teagan Micah, she was unbelievable.

"If she continues like that she's going to be number one Matilda very, very soon. So, all credit to her and our backline."

Micah ended the game with seven saves, leaving Roar coach Jake Goodship frustrated.

"The amount of clear chances we had and number of good chances we created, it's disappointing to draw and to say that against Melbourne City is probably unheard of,"

Goodship said

.

"I was very pleased with the performance, but disappointed with the end result."
