“To keep a clean sheet and win, that’s all we could ask for”

Rovers Ladies defender Chelsey Jukes felt the game couldn’t have gone any better as the Blues picked up three points and a clean sheet away to Stoke City Ladies.

“We knew it was going to be a battle so we just went out and gave it our all and I think it showed in our performance,” Jukes said post-match. 

“Especially with the battling that was going on, to keep a clean sheet and win, that’s all we could ask for really.”

17 year-old Fran Stenson maintained a shutout on her second appearance for the club, fresh from playing for England Under-19s.

“She made some great saves and did really well. It’s her second game for us and she’s stepped it up,” Jukes added. 

At the other end of the pitch, Rovers scored four on the road, to add to the five scored at Forest last weekend. 

“That’s what we need. We do our job at the back and then we need the strikers to do theirs at the top and that’s what they did. There was some really good finishing.”

The champions have hit the 60-point mark, but Jukes is adamant they won’t rest on their laurels as the league season comes to a close.

“We’ve got three games left and we just want to keep pushing and get as many points as we can.”

Jukes is off to compete in the Home Nations Competition for England Universities Sport this week.

Good luck, Chelsey!
