Game day 6 and a trip to last seasons Champions Doncaster Belles.
It was a nervy and scrappy affair throughout with both teams looking a bit on edge. We suffered a huge blow when influential CB Nicole Owen had to come off injured. Another victim of a twisted knee on a 3G pitch. This unsettled our girls a bit and Belles seized on that, good work from their forward to close down a clearance which broke kindly for her to slot home 1-0
The girls gave it a good go in the second half but never got into their usual rhythm. Had they done so I think it would have seen them through. Fair play to Belles, they restricted us to half chances. It wasn’t to be today but still been a good start with plenty of promise to look forward to. All thoughts now turn to Nicole and everyone wishes her a speedy recovery.
