Ashleigh Plumptre believes Leicester City can stay in the Barclays Women’s Super League following their 4-0 bashing of Liverpool over the weekend.
The Nigerian defender scored one of the goals as Leicester City boosted their survival hope.
The Super Falcons star defender headed home from a corner kick to make it 3-0 after Josie Green and Carrie Jones had given Leicester 2-0 lead within opening 20 minutes.
The victory lifted Leicester to 10th in two points above the drop in the 12 team league.
“Proud of this group for the performance, clean sheet and more importantly, the result. Nice to get my first goal at King Power too. To the fans, thank you – you were incredible. We move,” she said after the game.
“You can tell it’s been a bit of a day because I’ve lost my voice,” Plumptre told LCFC TV.
“But we came in with a game plan, and we executed it so well from start to finish. I think we had a little of a dead period in the second half. But you can tell that we planned for the game really well, and we were excellent.
“The coaches were saying that we were doing well defensively, but ultimately, the rest of the team make it a lot easier for us when they are putting pressure on Liverpool a lot higher up the pitch.”
Plumptre has made 17 appearances for the club this season and she’s expected to be on parade again when they travel to London to confront Arsenal.
