League Leaders Held


Leicester City Ladies rarely loose two on the bounce and their bounce back ability factor proved again as Leicester City Ladies held league leaders Stoke City at Linwood Park, leaving the door wide open for last weeks victors Wolves.
First half was a good game all round Stoke City ever present big, strong and effective. Leicester City Ladies were trying to carve openings but clear cut chances were to a miniumum.
Second half Stoke City took the lead early through a stunning set piece, it took the home team a while to get back into the flow of play but Leicester City Ladies looked worth a goal and if came from a header from Hillier who’s pace was ever present all game.
Either team may have nicked it Brant and Bateman had chances for Leicester City Ladies and Stoke City were threatening from corners and in behind but a draw was probably the right result.
Overall the result keeps Leicester City Ladies ticking a long nicely in now trying to snatch second but with two tough away games to go performances like today could take Leicester City Ladies just under Stoke City come May.
