Rovers forward Ella Toone is looking to go into top of the table clash against Middlesbrough this Sunday with a positive mind-set after last week's FA Cup exit.

Having suffered their first defeat of the season to Tottenham in the cup, Rovers will be determined to bounce back instantly in the eagerly-awaited match against their nearest league rivals this weekend.

Middlesbrough sit just three points behind them in the league table, but the Rovers have the advantage of three games in hand against the Teessiders.

“The loss against Spurs won't change how we individually prepare for the game, nor how we prepare as a team,” said Toone.

“Nobody likes losing and we don’t want to feel that again. We will use it in our favour. We are focussed and have trained hard this week.

“Middlesbrough are good side who are doing well in the league. The last time we played them it was a tough game.

“They are a challenging side to play against but we will go into the game with a positive mind-set like we do with every game.”

Kick-off at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium on Sunday is at 2.00pm. 

Rovers season ticket holders can see the game for free on production of their season ticket cards. General admission prices are: £3 for Adults and £1 for Juniors.
