Olton Ladies 1 Slough Ladies 3
THERE are some games that need to be won, and this Investec Premier League fixture was one of them.
Olton were playing bottom of the table Slough in a game that on recent form they were odds on to win.
They had all the chances to but just couldn’t get the ball to cross the line.
At the other end, however, Slough were very clinical, scoring three goals from effectively five attacks. One on one defending certainly let Olton down.
This loss was a body blow to all concerned, and their plans to escape the play-offs are in disarray. They are now relying on a win against table topping Canterbury away next week followed by a resounding win over Birmingham University at home the following week.
Worrying times for the squad and coaching team.
Meanwhile Olton’s men drew 1-1 with Leek.
