Report: Imps v Leicester

In their first game under the floodlights, Lincoln City Women faced a 3-2 defeat away at Leicester United.


The Imps made three changes from last weekend's winning starting line up. Ryley Johnson, Daisy Marsh and Amy Blinkhorn started in place of Chloe Brock-Taylor, Heather Pettit and Erin Wilson.


In a game of two halves, Lincoln got off to a flying start. It didn't take long for the Leicester goalkeeper to have to save Abbie Murrell's first shot on target.


The first goal of the game came from Jeorgia Carr in the 15th minute. Murrell gave the ball to Carr on the edge of the 18-yard box, who managed to slot it easily past the goalkeeper and into the back of the net.



The Imps dominated as the half went on. Twenty minutes later, Murrell crossed to Blinkhorn in the box, who slid the ball home and doubled the lead.



The second half went in the hosts' favour. Early in the half, Halloran was tested frequently in the Lincoln goal and made many quality saves. However, in the last 30 minutes of the game, Leicester scored three and took the lead.


Next up, the team face Birmingham and West Midlands on Sunday at Ashby Avenue.
