The Ravenettes are set to play a second successive home game on Sunday with second-placed Desford Ladies the visitors. It's all very tight at the top of the table after AFC Leicester surprisingly lost to Asfordby 1sts 3-6. Desford have played more games than anyone though and have only 5 games to play - 2 of those games are against Coalville.
Coalville finally got a game on last weekend despite heavy rain on the Friday and Saturday leading up to the game. Strong winds overnight and on Sunday morning helped their cause and duly dried out the Owen Street pitch. The game, which was against Hinckley Ladies, was by no means a classic. The wind made things difficult for both sides and Hinckley's game plan of getting players behind the ball stiffled Coalville's numerous attacks. Three quality goals won the game for Coalville, although the home side were disappointed with the goal they conceded.
Desford will still feel that they can finish in the top three and will no doubt be up for this one. Their last game was on 2nd February when they were knocked out of the League Cup at AFC Leicester 0-4. The points from their game against Groby Ladies on 23rd February were given to Groby, although it is understood that the club are appealing this with the league.
There were great numbers again on Tuesday night at Coalville's weekly training session. Twenty-one girls were in attendance and the snow and sleet stayed away for a change. The plans for the girls to train twice weekly came into effect last Thursday with an outdoor Futsal session and this will continue throughout the rest of the season.
Sunday's game at Owen Street kicks off at 2pm. All support is welcome. The bar will be open before, during and after the game, and the tea bar throughout the game. COYR !
