Firsts Leave it Late


This was a vital game at the top of the Midland Combination with Leafield were the visitors to Linwood Park, having beaten Leicester City Ladies 3-2 at their ground in September.
The first half was a low tempo, scrappy affair, both teams had chances but the scores were level at the interval.
Second half the Leicester City Ladies were better and played further up the pitch. The visitors were always dangerous on the break. Both teams had chances to score but it did not come until deep in stoppage time when Brants second corner delivery on the bounce was delivered high to the back post for Burbidge to power home a superb header high into the net to win the game for Leicester City Ladies.
Overall a difficult game all round for both sides, City maybe edged the second half although Leafield had chances. This was a solid display and although maybe lacking Leicesters usual tempo it was a vital win in a very open Combination division with the Ladies now sitting in second place.
