Deserved win for PNE Ladies

On a freezing cold afternoon, PNE Ladies triumphed over Bolton Wanderers u21 Ladies at the UCLan arena.  The final score was 3-1 to PNE.

It was a vital win for Preston against  another team struggling at the bottom of the league.  PNE dominated throughout the game and the scale of their victory could have been greater based on the number of chances and pattern of play.

The condition were difficult – a bitingly cold wind and the odd flurry of snowflakes. Credit to both sides for the way they went about the game.

It is to be hoped that this will give PNE the confidence to go on and win more games in the weeks ahead.



Disappointment for PNE Ladies

It’s fine margins between the disappointment of defeat and the joy of winning. Preston are languishing close to the bottom of the league, while their opponents Bury Ladies are close to the top.  You certainly wouldn’t have known based on the first 20 minutes of the game, which PNE dominated.  When chances come your way though, it’s the teams at the top that seem to put them away and that was the case down at UCLan Arena today. PNE could easily have been a couple of goals to the good before Bury scored but it wasn’t to be.

Preston played some good football and probably had as many chances as Bury but it was Bury who took all three points with two goals in the first half and another in the second. If Preston continue to play this way then it can’t be too long before they get more points on the board.
