Late Goal Sinks Firsts


Kyleigh BrantOnce again Leicester City Ladies did not come out with the result their play deserved in a good footballing match.
Rotherham took the lead when confusion in the box lead to the first goal being scored.
Second half Leicester City Ladies were much better and played some of their best football in 2015. They got their reward midway into the second half when a well worked throw was flicked in by Burbidge for Whalley to finish on her return.
Leicester City Ladies dominated a lot of the set plays in the final third but Rotherhams pace on the break was always a problem and a wonderful cross ball was swept home by the away forward to kill the game.
City had pressure on the Reds goal but all to no avail and can count themselves very unlucky.
Leicester City Ladies manager Matt Cook commented “That’s how things are going at the moment but people need to understand the huge transition the club is in and bringing through so many new and young players. I have to say we were excellent but I know the players are fed up of playing well and getting nothing but that will turn, with ten league Games and next weeks  semi final there’s so much to play for.”
