12 League Wins out of 12


Leicester City Ladies kept up their good form in the league with a good win over Oadby & Wigston Rovers.
This was always going to be a close game and the small pitch made it difficult for either team to get going. Leicester City Ladies started the brighter and strung some good passes together but just lacked the final ball. On ten minutes Molly took a quality corner which fell to Jade who showed a great control and poise to fire Leicester City Ladies into the lead. This goal gave Leicester City Ladies some confidence and they continued to press forward with Foxy and Olivia both unlucky not to score. On seventeen minutes Lauren deservedly increased Leicester’s lead with a great goal. Leicester City Ladies were definitely on top now and when Rovers did threaten Leicester worked hard and were determined to win the ball back.

Oadby & Wigston Rovers came out fighting in the second half and really upped their game. Leicester City Ladies were still playing well, with Ciara playing brilliantly in defence and the game became a midfield battle. Halfway through the second half Jade was quickest to react to a poor goal kick and she kept her cool to finish expertly for Leicester City Ladies 3rd goal. Oadby & Wigston Rovers continued to play well and Leicester lost concentration with ten minutes to go, allowing the Oadby striker too much space and she finished her chance well to make it 1-3. Oadby & Wigston Rovers pushed on and tried to put Leicester City Ladies under pressure but Leicester stood firm to make it 12 wins out of 12 in the league.
