Notts Ladies and their Liverpool counterparts shared a goalless draw at Meadow Lane in front of 1,073 supporters – the second time the club has broken the thousand barrier in three FAWSL fixtures.
It’s County who will be most unhappy to not take the victory having dominated possession for long periods of the game. A rasping drive from an acute angle from Player Of The Match Jess Clarke in the first half was the closest either side came to breaking the deadlock. Had it gone in, simply put you wouldn’t see better this season. Dunia Susi should certainly have made more of her one on one opportunity in the second half – her drive from just inside the area dragged just wide though.
Given the Liverpudlian visitors were last year’s Women’s Super League champions, NCLFC manager Rick Passmoor won’t be too disheartened with his side’s showing – but he’ll know it should have been so much more given the relative comfort his side found themselves in. Notts remain unbeaten in the FAWSL1 after this latest result and top the table ahead of Liverpool on goal difference.
The game was the last played at Meadow Lane for two months. Time for some much needed respite for a well-worn, rapidly deteriorating playing surface.
