Birmingham & West Midlands Ladies 4   - Solihull Ladies 2 


 26.02.2017   FA Women's Premier League @ Tamworth FC

 

Solihull travelled to Tamworth FC, a neutral ground for both teams, and had to contend with playing against the wind in the first half, and with no recognised goalkeeper in the squad. The match played out in a very similar fashion to the first encounter; early goals for West Mids and a good second half performance from Solihull who dominated but were not clinical enough.

 

An early injury to influential vice captain Salter, meant a shuffle of the back 4 for Solihull, and a handling error in the first minute saw them under pressure straight away. West Mids were playing very direct football - long and wide to utilise their pace up front - and they found themselves 3-0 up at half-time. Solihull created some half-chances and dominated possession overall, but with the wind hindering their advances, they were unable to get a goal back in the first 45 minutes.

 

A resurgent Solihull came out fighting in the second half. They controlled and dominated the middle of the pitch and the final third for long periods of the match, but again struggled to be clinical in front of goal. A change of formation saw Solihull go 3 at the back but against the run of play overall they were unlucky to concede a 4th goal on the counter attack.

            


After seeing a very decent penalty shout waived away, the team dug in even more to keep battling to get something out of the second half, as everything so far had been directly at the West Mids keeper. Davies had worked tirelessly up front and in the last 10 minutes managed to create space on the edge of the West Mids box and with the momentum of the wind her shot looped over keeper Fisher.  4-1 West Mids.

 

More pressure came from Solihull and a free kick was awarded on the far right of the pitch. A beautiful delivery by Dickinson was curled straight into the net and made the score line more reflective of the second half performance of Solihull

 

Sarah Westwood:  'We weren't good enough in the first 45 minutes and gave ourselves a lot to do. The second half was a much better performance, scoring two goals which reflected the girls character and determination. However, we can't win matches by performing for one half only -  we need to go away and think about this before the next match away  to Loughborough Students on 5th March.


             

 

Solihull team:  Unitt, Grieve, Salter (Jones 16'), Hargreaves, Williams (Bovan 72'), Harmison, Dickinson (C), White, Courtney, Brown (Gutteridge 45'), Davies. Subs unused: Plumb
