FOOTBALL - Coventry United Ladies boost survival hopes with win against 10-woman Crystal Palace

KATIE WILKINSON scored a second-half winner to boost Coventry United Ladies’ survival hopes with a vital 1-0 win against 10-woman Crystal Palace at Hayes Lane.

Wilkinson headed in at the back post from Olivia Fergusson’s cross on 67 minutes to secure a crucial three points after Grace Coombs was dismissed for Palace shortly after the break for a foul on Charlie Estcourt near the edge of the penalty area.

The result means Coventry are now back onto zero points, trailing relegation rivals Watford by seven points with six games left to play.

Coventry are next in action away at Durham on Sunday, March 13 with kick-off at midday (12pm) at Maiden Castle Sports Park.
