New Shape Gains Three Points

Leicester City Ladies had the opportunity to secure their best points tally in seven years in the Midland Combination division and they did it at the death to round off a fine first season at the new ground Aylestone Park with one away game to play.
With a few players out Leicester City Ladies set up in a new shape and a young team and they dominated possession throughout.
Copeswoods long ball over the top caused a few problems but Fyfe and Walton dealt well with their pacey front line.
Leicester City Ladies had more than enough chances to take the lead before the break even on a hot day with a slow tempo the chances were there but unfortunately it was 0-0 at half time.
Second half Leicester City Ladies kicked against the wind but in fact played better, better creativity and ball retention were evident but still it was frustrating for the home team.
Changes from a young sub bench made a difference and sub Lee created confusion in the penalty box and the ball fell to Waldron who with a fine half volley gave city the lead with ten minutes to go and it has to be said it was well deserved. Leicester City Ladies kept tight at the back and may have added one more to the tally but a professional performance gives City 33 points and fourth spot in the division with one game left and the highest points tally in 7 years.
Overall it was a little frustrating but Leicester City Ladies got the job done which is definitely testament to the character of the side and the payers coming into the squad. Congratulations to a successful home campaign at Aylestone Park with the final game next week taking the team to TNS .
