PNE Ladies suffered a 2-3 defeat in the Cup at home today against Leigh RMI Ladies. It was a closely contested game but Preston had more than enough chances to win the game, particularly in the first half when they squandered a number of chances. The Leigh keeper also did her part to keep the whites out with some great stops at the feet of the North End strikers.
At the other end Preston also seemed a bit hesitant. Many of the chances that did fall the way of Leigh were as a result of defensive errors but all credit to the visitors who kept pressing and forcing the mistakes.
As the game entered the last period of play it was even at 2-2 and both sides continued to look for the winner but it was Leigh who got it just three minutes from the end. Well done to Leigh on a hard fought win today.
