Defeat on the road against Wolves

Feds’ six-game unbeaten league run finally came to an end in Telford on Sunday afternoon as Wolverhampton Wanderers ran out three goal winners.

While Feds had some chances of their own, it was the home side that where worthy winners on the day showing ruthless spells from both set pieces and pressurising the Feds defense.

Feds had started the game well, Cole could have put the away side ahead as early as 2 minutes in when Collins ball across the face of the goal picked out the Feds forward who could only put the ball wide. It was an opportunity the away side would rue as moments later Wolves forward Beth Merrick caught Norney off her line from range giving Wolves a 1-0 lead.
Feds battled back with two chances of their own, Collins again breaking down the right and this time picking out Donoghue at the front post who’s effort was an easy collection for the Wolves keeper. Moments later a Feds corner was met by Collins and then Johnson who’s effort was forced wide by the Wolves defense. The home side had chances to extend their lead, George nearly put Wolves further ahead and Will from midfield had another opportunity but neither provided a huge test Norney in goal.
The Wolves pressure did finally break the Feds resolute defence as a dangerous Morphet corner was met by the Wolves forward Toussaint who doubled the home sides advantage.

Feds began the second half well, Cole put Donoghue through one on one but her strike went wide of the mark. Cole also had opportunities of her own, one from range that just went over and having been picked out by Collins at the back post her strike hit the side netting.
The home side continued to be a threat from both set pieces and the addition of pace to their front line with Cross coming on from the bench.
It was Cross that got Wolves third goal in added time. A mistake at the back from Feds put Cross through one on one with the keeper and the forward was able to slot the ball home. A disappointing final moment for Feds who were much more of a match for the home side in the second half.

Feds finished the day remaining in fourth place, albeit it playing a number of games more than their opponents.
It’s Wolverhampton that will visit Jericho in our final game of the season providing Feds with a chance to turn the result in their favour come May.
