Unbeaten Run Extended


Leicester City Ladies made it four games unbeaten in the league with a win over Northampton Town.
Leicester City Ladies as the home team were one up inside three minutes when a fine footballing move was finished by Gemma Ball.
City had numerous chances and brave Northampton Town defending kept the Leicester lead to a single goal.
Eventually Katie Bateman broke though the defence on twenty five minutes, she timed her run superbly to get on the end of a fine pass from Helen Rudkin and rounded the keeper to score.
Leicester City Ladies were a bit patched up through injury but the changes seemed to click.
In the second half Leicester City Ladies made it hard for themselves getting involved in a cup tie type game.
Leicester City Ladies stood firm and gained control of the game again late on and were unlucky to not add another to the score sheet, with Laura Toon’s effort going the closest to making the game further beyond Northampton Town.
Leicester City Ladies manger Matt Cook commented after the game “Overall a great spirit and commitment shown once again this time with a clean sheet to match a fine result.”
