Chelsea Ladies 0 - 0 Notts County Ladies

Joe Jones

Notts County Ladies have secured a point away at Chelsea Ladies to elevate them to second in the Women's Super League Table, having previously fallen to fourth place after results in midweek, but could have easily won the game were it not for a good display between the sticks from Blues goalkeeper and Chilean international Christiane Endler.

As has often been the case, the Lady Pies were quickest off the starting blocks, Jess Clarke and Dunia Susi linking up well and causing trouble against the opposition.

The duo helped set up Katie Hoyle in the second minute of the game, but the midfielder blasted wide.

On the quarter-hour mark, Clarke controlled the ball with her chest, but her shot flew just wide, and two minutes later, she managed to force a corner with another dangerous effort.

From the ensuing corner, Rachel Corsie twisted and sent a volley goalwards, but Endler was able to parry the ball away before smothering at the second attempt.

Just a minute later, Caitlin Friend was felled in the Blue box, but the referee only awarded a free kick, which was ultimately cleared away.

Notts continued to have the better of the chances, Clarke continuing to plug away, and towards the end of the half, a mistake by Endler nearly set up Katie Holtham, but the German-born stopper was able to rectify her mistakes and keep her clean sheet unsullied.


After the interval, Endler came out of the box to clear the ball, and Clarke was able to dispossess her and cross into the danger zone, but Chelsea managed to clear away the danger.

Just a few minutes later, Desiree Scott was next to try her luck with a volley, but the Chelsea keeper produced a fine save, backpedaling and tipping the sphere onto the post and out for a corner.

The Blues seldom threatened Carly Telford's goal, the sole real attempts coming from a stray inswinging corner and from Yuki Ogimi's overhit free kick, but as it was, Endler's erratic yet effective display ensured that the spoils would be shared among the two sides.

The WSL is bisected by a mid-season break, which will see no action take place until the 29th June, with the exception of the FA Cup final between Arsenal and Everton on the 1st June.
