Unbeaten Run Continues


Leicester City Ladies first team kept up their unbeaten run and their movement up the Midland Combination table. Loughborough Students had held Leicester City Ladies to a goalless draw only last week but this time the game went to City.
Some good positive first half football from Leicester City Ladies created some good chances. Brant delivery from the left and invention from Ball and Bateman were notable in Leicester City Ladies attack.
It was a fine move that created Leicester City Ladies opening goal as Kilby finished from a rebound. Soon Kilby was causing trouble again as a good set piece ended up in the near corner off a Loughborough Students player getting the last touch. Brant then shone again and another great delivery this time from the left was finished at the far post from Hillier.
Few more chances were created and a crucial save from Cattle in the Leicester City Ladies goal kept it at three nil.
The second half of the match was very scrappy and lacked in quality, Loughborough Students played a lot more positively and tried to break down the Leicester City Ladies defence.
After riding the storm Leicester City Ladies saw the game out and earned a vital away win.
Overall a game of two halves but no one can deny Leicester City Ladies first half quality and another clean sheet to go with it was very pleasing.
