Bradford Women 1 – 0 Hull City Ladies – Match Report
An unfortunate result for the Tigresses on Sunday away to Bradford Women at the Horsfall Stadium. A frustrating afternoon in good conditions with great weather but hitting the woodwork twice and a lot of chances were not taken.
A slow start from both sides not creating any real chances and early half chances on the right hand side from Katie Thompson but struggled to get a good connection, breaking down the chance.
Half way into the first half a long range effort from Helen Lynskey forces a great save from the Bradford goalkeeper parrying out for a corner. A poor corner from the Tigresses with no end result.
The home team a few minutes later created a quick chance, beating the offside trap gave Bradford an easy finish for the first goal of the game with Sandra Martins scoring in the 28th minute.
A very uneventful first half with limited chances for both sides, the Tigresses head into half time a goal down. A big second half for Hull City Ladies was needed.
