There was no game for Wolves Women this weekend, but the Reserves were in action and recorded an impressive 2-0 win over Coventry City Ladies, leapfrogging them to take second place in the Reserve League table.

 

The first half saw chances for both sides, but neither team was able to take advantage. After the break, however, Wolves took advantage after just four minutes, as Emma Cross linked up well with Louise Price, whose curling shot from inside the box flew into the top right hand corner of the net. 

 

The partnership up front between Jade Hewitt and Jordon Timmins-Ray saw the second goal scored in the 70th minute, with Timmins-Ray lobbing the keeper from 18 yards out after a precise through ball from Hewitt.

 

The team worked hard for the last 20 minutes to keep the clean sheet, moving them to within 3 points of league leaders Cardiff City.

 

Reserve team Manager Alex Owens said: "It was an incredible performance by the girls today - a proud day for players and management."  

 

Meanwhile, rearranged fixtures after the bad weather in January and February meant there was no game for the first team while their relegation rivals were in action.

 

Restructuring of the women's game means that only one team will be relegated from the FA Women's Premier League Northern Division this season. Wolves are currently just one place off the bottom, battling the drop with rivals Blackburn and Leeds. As Wolves twiddled their thumbs, they were pleased to see both of their adversaries lose their games, leaving Wolves still one place above the relegation zone with everything to play for.

 

After a recent good run of form which saw them beat Newcastle away and draw at Leeds, Wolves will be hoping to keep up the pace as they entertain Bradford City next Sunday 30th March.

 

It won't be an easy game, with 7th placed Bradford coming off the back of two good league wins over Stoke and Derby.

 

The game will be played at Castlecroft Stadium, Castlecroft Road, Castlecroft, Wolverhampton, WV3 8NA with a 2pm kick-off. Admission is £2; concessions £1; Wolves season ticket holders £1 if you bring your season ticket.
