Tractor Girls Win at MK
Sunday, 16th Apr 2023 16:15

First-half goals from Natasha Thomas and Abbie Lafayette, from the penalty spot, saw Ipswich Town Women to a 2-0 victory over the MK Dons at Stadium MK, the Tractor Girls' eighth win on the bounce.

All-time top scorer Thomas gave the Blues the lead in the 11th minute, heading home during a goalmouth scramble.

Lafeyette converted from the spot six minutes later after Anna Grey had been felled in the box.

The Blues stay third in the FA Women's National League Southern Premier Division with leaders Oxford United claiming a last-gasp 2-1 victory at Portsmouth and Watford in second winning 2-0 at home to the London Bees.

Town have two games remaining, one the recently postponed home game against the U’s, who have three matches left including their fixture at Watford which was also called off earlier this week.

Town: Quantrill, Boswell, Wearing, Lafayette, Hughes, Robertson (O’Brien 71), King (c), Grey (Godfrey 83), Peskett, Brasero-Carreira (Horwood 71), Thomas. Subs: Meollo, Mitchell.

Well done on ladies.

It's does seem like we've done the opposite to last season, coming strong at the end. It still seems ridiculous that winning the league won't get you up unless you wins play-off… fingers crossed the girls get the breaks this year.

Monkey_Blue, I 100% agree with you. Its only fair that winning any league you should be rewarded with promotion. But this doesn't apply in this league, which is wrong in my opinion.
The league structure needs looking into by the powers that be,

Only chance of top spot is if Watford and Oxford draw. Agree that one team going into a play-off is ridiculous. It can't stay that way in the future.
