Vixens Draw With Wolves

Guiseley Vixens pick up a point at home against Wolves Women in a 2-2 draw.

Nikki Berko bagged two goals on her return from injury but it was not enough, with Laura McQuiklin and Leanne Robinson getting two goals for the travelling side.

Wolves found themselves ahead just four minutes in. A mix-up at the back allowed Robinson to capitalise, poking the ball past Seasman and Liv DaCosta was unable to keep it out.

The Vixens kept the attack up, having four good opportunities in twenty minutes with Emily Scott, Debs Hastings and Alarna Fuller going close.

Just before half-time Charlie Blythe took on her marker in the box before her cross was blocked up rather than out. Fiona Worts pounced on the loose ball, turned her marker but her shot cannoned off of the crossbar.

Just before the half-hour mark Guiseley had a great opportunity to draw level. Beth Stanfield threading a ball through to Scott who side-footed it cutely to Worts but her shot went over the upright.

Berko was subbed on in the 63rd minute and scored less than five minutes later, showing passion to get onto a loose ball in the box to poke it home.

She could have got another ten minutes later when she leapt well to steer the ball goal bound but was unlucky to see it hit the post.

Ebony Njie was brought on the in 75th minute and made an instant impact, breaking from a corner to play through Berko who took it into the box, cut inside and finished well to put the Vixens ahead for the first time in the game.

Wolves were awarded a freekick on the edge of the box for an apparent foul. McQuiklin stepped up and tucked her effort in the bottom left-hand corner out of the reach of Seasman to draw level with ten to go.

Jade Cross had the opportunity to win it for Wolves late on. She cut inside after getting on the end of a through ball and tried to bend one in the far corner but Seasman got down well to deny the opportunity.

The next test for Guiseley is last year’s league winners Blackburn Rovers, away from home.
