Hill: First win is coming

“We’ve just got to be little bit more clinical in front of goal”

Goalkeeper Danielle Hill says it’s only a matter of time before Rovers register their first victory in the Women’s Championship.

London Bees claimed all three points at Bamber Bridge on Sunday, while Rovers also came away from Lewes empty handed on the opening day.

But Hill, who skippered the side in the absence of Saffron Jordan, is confident that results will change sooner rather than later.

“No one is going to question the effort – 110% from beginning to end,” she said post-match.

“We had a few people away and a few people injured so the team was mismatch but you can’t question the ability of the players that are coming in and the work rate.

“All we ask for at our club is 110% and I think we were just a little bit unlucky with chances that we missed.

“We had a lot of set plays. We’ve just got to be little bit more clinical in front of goal. On a different day we win 4-1 or 5-1 with the chances we had. Their keeper made top class saves.

“That’s the difference between the league we were in and this league. They are going to have better players. The strikers are going to finish so we need to go and do the same.

“Hopefully it will be a learning curve that we can’t have six or seven chances and not finish. We need to find the back of the net.”

The Blues had dominated the first-half but London Bees struck the crucial blow just before the break.

And the Rovers stopper says there’s lots to learn from the game.

“We need to make sure we get through the first 45 at 0-0. We were on top and then I think a little bit of naivety, no pressure on the ball, not getting high enough and the ball’s gone over the top.

“Everyone’s disappointed but I said to the girls we need to come off with our heads held high.

“To say we played against a full strength London Bees squad and only got beat 1-0 and had the chances to go on and get a draw or a win shows the quality of our team.”
