Rovers ladies' Danielle Whitham has warned her team-mates that they must be up to scratch when they host Hull on Sunday in the Women’s FA Cup.

After narrowly squeezing past Bradford City in the first round of the competition, the Rovers midfielder is anticipating another tough encounter at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium.

The Ladies have reached the turn of the year unbeaten this current campaign, but Whitham knows it will count for nothing in the cup.

“I think it will be a physical game, they will throw everything at us being the underdog so we need to ensure that we are not complacent,” said Whitham.

“We need to keep up the consistency, stay focused and not get tired of doing the right things on and off the pitch.”

Rovers haven’t played at home for over a month, but Whitham says it will be good to be back at Bamber Bridge.

“It will be good to play at home again," she added. “We know how to play good football at home and we get into good habits and perform well.

“There is loads of competition in the squad so I need to stay in the team, nobody is safe.

“That just shows the quality we have though, I would love to go on and win something major with this group.”

Rovers season ticket holders can see Sunday's match at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium for free on production of their season ticket cards.

General admission prices are £3 for Adults and £1 for Kids. Kick-off is at 2.00pm.
