Amy Kay was relieved to come out of Sunday’s game with Sporting Khalsa with a point - but revealed a sense of frustration at failing to turn a strong second-half performance into a victory.
City trailed 2-0 after 35 minutes following Olivia Woolston’s double for the visitors, but Chantelle Robinson pulled one back before the break and Kay struck in the 90th minute to secure a point.
Kay said: “In the first-half the girls were trying, we seemed to be forcing it a little bit. We’ve come away with a point which is probably a fair result, but on that second half performance we had enough chances to have won.
“You can’t afford not to take those opportunities in this league so it is two points dropped in our head, but we’re fortunate after the first-half performance to come away with a point. We build and go again next week.”
Kay found herself the hero when she fired home from Mille Fugler’s free-kick to ensure the Imps came away from the game with a point.
Kay added: “I can’t remember my last goal it’s been that long! It doesn’t happen very often but it was an important one.
The ball just didn’t seem to want to go in the net, the ball just came over and to be honest I didn’t think about it and just hit it - thankfully it went in!
