High-flying Belper Ladies suffered a setback after they were beaten 4-0 by the University of Birmingham II.

Becky White and Jo Lane were unavailable for Belper as they looked to avenge their only defeat of the Season so far.

But it was not to be as the visitors recorded the ‘double’ with a comfortable victory thanks to two goals in each half.

It was the perfect away performance from the visitors, as their compact, mobile and well organised defence, limited the Belper forwards to very few direct attempts on goal.

Belper had around 70 per cent possession, but it is what you do with the ball that counts and Birmingham showed this perfectly by scoring their goals on devastating counter attacks.

Belper will be looking to return to winning ways against Beeston II on Saturday.
