Mansfield 2-2 Leicester

After an opening day draw to newly promoted Solihull, who proved to be a tough nut to crack, it was across Nottinghamshire to play at the One Call Stadium versus the other newly promoted team. The two teams who have been promoted was the last thing Leicester City Ladies wanted as they possess a winning mentality from the previous year with lots of passion. This proved relevant again as Mansfield battled back and goals from Hillier and Clarke were not enough for City to hold on. Both teams had chances to win it late on but a 2-2 was probably fair on the day.
