Wolves Women a goal down after 2 minutes

Right after the Wolves men met Birmingham yesterday Wolves Women had the Nottingham side Radcliffe Olympic as guests at Goodrich.

But just as the men they found themselves a goal down early in the match. After just two minutes a shot from Radcliffe’s Nicola Smith was deflected over the head of Wolves’ keeper for the day, Naomi Bruton.

But Wolves didn’t let the goal affect their plan or their play, and they pushed for an equaliser and got it in the 19th minute.

It was the Wolves striker Dani Selmes who scored after some excellent build-up play from Lynsey Longhurst in defence together with Sally Stanton who found Amy McCann. She made a perfect pass to Selmes who could finish in style.

There were chances at both ends in the first half but it finished level. In the second half Wolves started to dominate. Apparently no funny tea this time and after the hour the new signing Ashleigh Coley came on for her debut at left-back and played well.

But despite the Women had the majority of possession they couldn’t find the back of the net, and subsequently the game finished 1-1.

Wolves Women manager James Astle about the match to Wolves official site:

I’m pleased to say we were much improved from last week. I think that result hurt the players – it was our only defeat of the season in the league since the opening game. Today the first half was pretty fair between the teams. We slightly changed formation for the second half, and we dominated play – which has more than often been the case here at Goodrich – but it wasn’t to be.”

Next Sunday, 6th December, Wolves will play away against Crewe.

TEAM: Bruton, Longhurst, Hakeman (Coley 64), Perks (captain), Salter, Stanton, Richards (Walker 79), Quick, Selmes, McCann, Packer. SUBS NOT USED: Widdal, Large, Morris.
