CITY v Derby County
« on: September 14, 2010, 03:40:31 PM »
Derby 2 - City 3

Goals from Krystal Johnson, Lauren Beckford and Lindsay Savage earned City all three points in a five goal thriller, away to Derby in the League Cup.

Derby pressured us right from the start, which resulted in a goal in the 14th minute scored by Derbys Jo Skully. 1-0. Ten minutes later, Lauren Beckford, getting back to her old self after injury, supplied a superb cross for Krystal Johnston to head in the equaliser 1-1. This settled us down and Lauren Beckford scored herself making it
2-1 going into half time.

A positive half time team talk by manager Leigh Wood saw us start well in the second half, City grew stronger and began to dominate the game with good passing and movement, a quick 1 - 2 between Lindsay Savage and Jade Malpus resulted in a thundering shot from Savage leaving the Derby goalkeeper no chance. 3-1 !!.
Jenny Anslow gave Derby a consolation goal making final result 2-3 City.

The reserves lost 3-1 to Everton
