Midweek Success


Leicester City Ladies hit back to back midweek wins this time against the Loughborough Students.
The visitors started the brighter and played some good football and took the lead from a cross ball and simple tap in. Leicester City Ladies equalised quickly from a corner as Sarah Burbidge forced the ball over the line to make the half time score one each.
Second half Leicester City Ladies dominated limiting Loughborough Students to play long which doesn’t suit their usual style. It was competitive second half and City had chances from Bateman, Hillier and Gage but it was Burbidge again with a fine left foot finish into the top corner ten minutes from time to take the points.
Overall a fine display from City in a highly competitive match played at a good standard. With five games to go it will be a tight run in between the top four all with big games to come.
