Firsts Win Tight Encounter


Leicester City Ladies followed up their away point to Leafield with another good away performance and a clean sheet as well.
City took a well deserved lead half through the first half when a Brant cross was headed in superbly by skipper Kilby.
Second half was different as Solihull pushed Leicester City Ladies back and saw many chances come and go. With three subs needed through injury City fought all the way to the end and were unlucky not to sneak a second on the final whistle.
Leicester City Ladies manager Matt Cook commented “This was a frustrating game but in terms of effort with the squad pushed to its limits them it was an A* performance. Solihull I’m sure feel unlucky to. I had to to make so many changes, striker Chiv played central midfield, Kay went to full back to name just a couple so well done for keeping together girls and picking up three points.”
