NORTHAMPTON TOWN WOMEN EXTEND UNBEATEN RUN TO THREE GAMES WITH PETERBOROUGH DRAW

A report on Wednesday night's action

12 October 2022

Northampton Town Women extended their unbeaten run to three games in all competitions with a 1-1 draw away to Peterborough United in the FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands on Wednesday night.

Alex Dicks scored the Cobblers’ goal, her 50th for the first team in her 47th appearance.

It was a competitive first half with the hosts’ fans firmly behind them.

They created the first chance a quarter-of-an-hour in, Niamh Connor hooking over from the penalty spot.

Northampton’s first opportunity fell a few minutes later when Alex Dicks’ low drive was denied by a diving save from Neive Corry at her near post.

But Peterborough continued to push forward and almost opened the scoring twice shortly after the midpoint of the first period, Kayleigh Aylmer hitting the top of the crossbar from a free-kick and Kier Perkins sliding wide one-on-one.

The Cobblers grew into the half, Dicks having a curled shot pushed away by Corry and Gracie Williams seeing a goal-bound first-time strike blocked.

They broke the deadlock soon after the break, Dicks arrowing a superb long-range effort into the bottom corner. Keeper Corry was caught out by the drive and seemed to be letting the ball run out for a goal-kick.

The striker was in again less than a minute later, but this time the Posh stopper was alert to rush off her line and clear the ball.

The hosts pressed for an equaliser and began creating more chances around the hour mark, Cassie Steward coming closest when she sent a shot towards goal that flew across the face.

Jo Daniel dealt with a number of shots from range in this period.

There was nothing she could do when Peterborough equalised going into the final quarter-of-an-hour, though, Perkins firing into the top corner after driving into the area.

Josh Oldfield and Liam Williams’ side travel to Lincoln United in the Vitality Women’s FA Cup third qualifying round a week on Sunday.

The Cobblers did the double over their opponents as they won the East Midlands Women’s Regional Football League Premier Division title last season.

Cobblers: Jo Daniel, Sara Wait, Vicky Barrett (sub Kim Farrow 80), Bianca Luttman, Zoe Boote, Rachael Mumford, Fay Noble, Beth Artemiou (sub Abbie Brewin 69), Favour Omenazu, Alex Dicks, Gracie Williams (sub Abbie Reboul 80)
Subs not used: TJ Warren, Mia Richards
