Ward strikes in Wales win
 Women's Football News 6 Apr 2015
 
Wales 1 Slovakia 0
A dominant performance from Wales saw them beat Slovakia 1-0 at The Book People Stadium following a second half goal from Helen Ward. 
 
This was Jayne Ludlow's first match on home soil and she will be pleased with the efforts of her squad who worked hard for the entire 90 minutes.
 
From early on Wales looked good with Helen Bleazard hitting the crossbar after just three minutes from a free kick that was taken outside of the box.
 
Wales gave Slovakia no time on the ball and when Rachel Rowe played Natasha Harding through on goal, only a fine save from Lucia El Dahaibiová denied them from taking the lead in the 10th minute.
 
Less than a minute later, Ward attempted an audacious lob from 30 yards that had Dahaibiová beaten but the effort hit the post. Jessica Fishlock followed up on the rebound but saw her strike blocked on the line.
 
Rowe and Fishlock combined well in the 17th minute to provide Ward with an opportunity but Dahaibiová was quick off her line to narrow the angle and deny Wales with a great save.
 
Wales goalkeeper Alice Evans, was having a fine game and needed to be alert in the 26th minute to deny Jana Vojteková from distance.
 
Wales were left disappointed that the score remained 0-0 at half-time but they only had to wait ten minutes into the second half until they unlocked the Slovakia defence. Ward sneaked through to round Dahaibiová for an easy finish to make it 1-0 to Wales.
 
Wales deserved their lead and Slovakia were now forced to plough forward in an attempt to find an equaliser.
 
Slovakia nearly got the goal they were searching for in the 75th minute when a corner kick was sent to the back post for an unchallenged header. Fortunately for Wales, the headed shot hit the side netting.
 
Wales always looked the more dangerous of the teams in the closing stages of the match and comfortably dealt with Slovakia's attempts to breach their defence.
 
This was a fantastic win for Wales, who look forward to playing Slovakia again on Wednesday 8th April for a second Friendly International Match. Kick off at The Book People Stadium for this game is at 7pm.
