Faye fully focused on cup progress

Rovers Ladies are back on cup duty this Sunday when they host Loughborough Foxes in the FA Women's Premier League Cup.

The Ladies are unbeaten so far this campaign and go into the weekend match off the back of a 4-2 league win over Bradford City to extend their lead at the top of the table.

And whilst midfielder Faye McCoy doesn't now too much about the opposition, she knows that Rovers have to be fully focussed to ensure they reach the fourth round of the competition.

"Bradford was a physical game and we knew it was going to be, but Loughborough is a different story," said McCoy.

"We may not know too much about them however the positive is that it allows us to focus solely on ourselves, what we are doing right and wrong to keep working hard."

McCoy has proved her versatility in recent weeks by moving from attack to midfield, but she insists it is all about the team and not her personal preference.

She added: "I just like to be playing on the pitch. I’ve said to Gemma in the past that I’d play anywhere.

"I usually play as a ten, so playing deeper is about having more discipline. With Lynda Shepherd dropping into defence I knew I had to use my experience to ensure we kept things tight and kept playing football."

Kick-off at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium, Bamber Bridge this Sunday is at 2.00pm. All supporters are welcome.
