Leicester City Ladies 1 WBA 2


After a a last gasp defeat in midweek Leicester City Ladies first team were back in action within three days and they welcomed high flying West Brom.
No doubt West Brom are probably the most technically gifted team in the division who were always going to provide tough competition.
First half Leicester City Ladies looked nothing like a team sitting in fifth place and a very lack lustre performance gifted the visitors the first half and they were increasingly lucky to only be 0-2 down at the interval.
Second half Leicester City Ladies got their act together and although West Brom still had chances the attitude and organisation was much better.
Both teams had decent chances and Leicester City Ladies keeper Sian Crewe was in fine form.
Leicester City Ladies got their reward with ten minutes to play when Helen Rudkin scored from long range.
Leicester City Ladies added good pressure to try and level the scores, Preston and Scott both came close from set plays but unfortunately City could not pull back the first half’s performance.
Overall a very frustrating day for all as second half Leicester City Ladies showed they are a decent side but a two goal head start in a slack first half performance turned out to be enough for the visitors.
Player of the match- Sian Crewe
