It was a back to football at UCLan Arena today for the game between Preston and Leigh ladies. The first half belonged to Preston who played some good football, they competed well and at the interval were two-nil up. Both goals came from shots from outside the area – one of which was probably intended as a cross but they all count!
All credit to Leigh though, they came out fighting in the second half and managed to pull two goals back to make the game even. The second goal followed what looked like a foul on Preston’s Right Back but the referee let play go on and Leigh had their equaliser.
The game still had one more surprise though and it was a mistake from Leigh’s keeper that gifted Preston a deserved winner and three valuable points.
