The first half of this Cup game is one that PNE Ladies will want to forget. Defensive frailties and missed chances meant that they went into the break two-nil down. Strangely they could and should have had at least there goals in that half while Altrincham could also have scored more.
In the second half things improved slightly but Preston still couldn’t score and it was clear that this was turning into a collective ‘bad day at the office’. PNE were missing their Captain today and it showed. In the end Preston finished the game with nine players due to injuries and the game ended 3-0 to Altrincham Ladies who deserved their win. For me, this was the team’s poorest performance of the season so far.
