Yeovil book West Country date - 15 Feb 2016 - Women's Football NewsYeovil Town 2 Bradford City 0
Yeovil Town took their place in the Fourth Round of the SSE FA Women's Cup with a hard earned 2 0 home win over FAWPL Northern Division Bradford City at Sherborne. 
 
An exciting tie with South West FAWSL 2 rivals Bristol City awaits the Lady Glovers but they were made to work very hard by the West Yorkshire visitors who played with great commitment and spirit. An early Sarah Wiltshire strike gave Yeovil the advantage but the outcome was only settled deep into added time with Tash Knapman's goal with almost the final kick of the match.
 
Wiltshire was denied by Bradford keeper Chloe Precious in the sixth minute but the same player netted when a Nadia Lawrence pass sent her clear through the middle of the visiting defence on 13 minutes. City had a good chance to equalise on 22 minutes when a defensive slip let in Hannah Campbell but a combination of defender Helen Bleazard and keeper Charlotte Haynes denied the Bradford attacker.
 
Yeovil, in their first competitive outing, certainly created the better chances during the rest of the half. A series of corners troubled the Bradford defence with Nicola Cousins and Steph Williams going very close with headers. New skipper Ellie Curson was very influential in keeping the attacks moving as chances came and went.
 
A lovely move involving Lawrence and Wiltshire played in Ann Marie Heatherson on the left of goal , but her powerful goalbound shot struck a teammate and bounced clear on 35 minutes. Bradford defended with real determination through the Yeovil pressure to reach the half time break with just the single goal deficit.
 
Heatherson had a good early second half chance when she did well to carry on after a foul but was denied at close range by a fine save by Precious low to her left on 51 minutes. Wiltshire went very close with a run and curling shot on the turn from 20 yards which flew inches wide on 64 minutes but City were still well in the match as the clock ran down.
 
Bradford pushed on with Rosie McDonnell on the left always a threat but Yeovil generally restricted the visitors to long range shots and a couple of free kick efforts. Even so, there was always the chance of a late equaliser as the match entered the time added on for an unfortunate injury to Ellis Hillman soon after the break.
 
A clever move on the right finally opened up the Bradford defence and the ball was pulled back for sub Knapman to drive home Yeovil's second from ten yards to seal the home side's date with Bristol City. Yeovil had shown glimpses of their attacking potential and had defended solidly against good opponents when necessary in a positive start to their campaign.
