End of Home Record


Leicester City Ladies surrendered their long standing league home record versus a dangerous Rotherham side.
The game was played in a good tempo, Leicester looking to play high up the pitch and Rotherham looking to counter attack. This paved the way for a good competitive football match. By half time neither team managed to break the dead lock. Early in the second half Keicester City Ladies cross turned shot somehow didn’t go over the line. Rotherhams counter attack with a very talented front line possed problems all day long for City and on the hour mark the visitors got their reward and took the lead. Leicester City Ladies threw bodies forward in search of a point but late in stoppage time were countered once again and the visitors took all three points.
Leicester City Ladies Manager Matt Cook commented “Overall I thought we did quite well in the game, we certainly worked hard. I think Rotherham had a game plan and I have to say it paid off. Credit to them I thought they played very well and if anyone was to take away our home league record it had to be on that back of a good away performance and I thought Rotherham gave just that. My girls have been excellent in this past 6 weeks and 5 wins and 1 deafeat since the start of October is an impressive record so when you look at it like that you can’t complain. I love working with them and to see them down was hard but when you work hard and loose its tough. We have a lot of young players and I actually thought we played better today than the last three weeks in some ways and we won those games but that’s football.”
