Mick Wood: We’ll take the positives from it

Assistant on cup defeat to Wolves.

Mick Wood gave his thoughts to LUTV after seeing his side exit the FAWNL Cup, away at Wolves Women.

The hosts play in a higher division to the Leeds, but in what was a competitive game until the very end, the Whites gave a solid account of themselves away from home. 

“I thought the girls were absolutely immense, especially the second half,” Wood explained. 

"The first half I thought we maybe gave them a bit too much respect, but we still played well, we hit the bar and we had some other chances.

"We went in at half-time and explained to them to calm down a bit and we made a couple of tactical changes."

After dominating for large spells in the second period, Laura Bartup pulled a goal back for the Whites but Wolves netted in the final seconds of the game to wrap the tie up.

“They’ve got the third goal right at the end and I don’t think we deserved that,” Wood reflected. 

“We were pressing and pushing them back looking for the equaliser, we got the goal back to make it 2-1 and tried to then get another. 

“I felt all the players were brilliant today, they gave it everything.  

“It’s just a case of recovering now, taking the positives from it and looking ahead to the next game.”
