Safe Progress in County Cup


This week saw Leicester City Ladies face Harborough Town in the 1st round of the Couty Cup in one of only two ties.
Leicester City Ladies started the first ten minutes very slowly and really struggled to get their normal passing going. Leicester City Ladies finally came to life after fifteen minutes when Foxy put them in front and Lauren soon doubled their lead after a good corner from Laura dropped to her on the edge of the box. Strikers Tamzin and Olivia were both working hard to try and make chances but the Harborough Town defence were tough and made it very hard for them. Leicester City Ladies made it 3 with the best move of the game, a slick passing move ended with an inch perfect finish from Lauren, giving the goalkeeper no chance. Leicester City Ladies were now having their best spell of the game and were unlucky not to increase their lead further, hitting both the post and the bar in a matter of seconds! Harborough Town continued to battle and made Leicester City Ladies work for every ball.
Half Time: LCLFC 3 Harborough Town 0
The second half started much the same as the first with Leicester City Ladies slightly off the pace and struggling to find any consistency. The game became a bit of a battle which suited Harborough Town much more. Leicester City Ladies switched off and Harborough Town looked a lot sharper going forward, Leicester’s defence stood firm and goalkeeper Viv stayed on her toes and was on hand to make saves when needed. Leicester City Ladies were still enjoying the majority of the possession but their final ball was letting them down. Leicester City Ladies did finally get their fourth goal when Foxy followed in her own shot which the goalie fumbled and Foxy was on hand to head home.
Full Time: LCLFC 4 Harborugh Town 0
Not Leicester City Ladies best performance but a good win and another clean sheet. Leicester City Ladies are back in league action next week with a tough game against Oadby & Wigston United.
