Match Report: Derby County LFC 2-3 Nottingham Forest LFC.

Sunday, 5 November 2017

Those turning up to this Bonfire day fixture expecting fireworks were not to be disappointed. With the first meaningful attack of the match,Derby took the lead. Lucy latching on to a clearance by Sophie B fed Hajrah out on the right, who in turn put in a delightful cross to allow Iesha to head past the Forest Keeper.(Derby 1-0)

The lead was to last only 5mins when a Derby Goal kick was won in midfield and the ball was fed to Neveah(#12) who showed her strength to fire home.(1-1Forest)

Neveah again showed her strength and speed, running through the middle to score a fine solo effort in the 15th minute.(1-2 Forest)

Ten Minutes later it was a hard low shot from Sophie B that flashed across the goal, to ricochet in off the far post, that levelled the match.(Derby 2-2)

Half time.

The second half got underway and it was in the 39th minute that Neveah completed her Hat-trick. Receiving the ball with her back to goal, she turned and fired home, giving Chloe, the Derby Keeper, no chance.(2-3 Forest)

From then on it was a case of Forest stoutly defending their lead and Derby rueing their numerous missed chances. Derby felt hard done by when Milly burst through the Forest defence to be tripped in the area, only for the Referee to adjudge that the Defender had got ‘Something of the ball’ and turned the penalty claim down. Despite constant Derby pressure, Forest held firm to claim the 3 points.
