City Ladies continued their impressive start to the season with a 1-0 win over Preston North End.
The winning goal came early in the contest thanks to Lindsey Savage who blasted home a free kick from the edge of the box.
It wasn’t all smooth sailing for City as Preston missed a penalty and Andrea Worrall was forced into some fine reflex saves.
Manager Leigh Wood commented: "It was a hard fought game today in which we had to dig deep to beat a very well drilled Preston team.
“We rode our luck at times but did have enough chances to put the game to bed in the second half. It was a good three points."
The women are at home this Sunday when they host Nottingham Forest in a League Cup match at the Regional Athletics Arena next to CoMs. Kick-off is noon. Entrance on gate is £2 for adults - under 16s free when accompanied by a paying adult.
