Rovers Ladies midfielder Natasha Fenton felt there were plenty of reasons to be optimistic despite Rovers going down 1-0 at home to London Bees on Sunday.
The Blues’ number eight put in a battling display in the middle of the park, leading to her being named The Peter Jackson the Jeweller Player of the Match.
But she was keen to praise the whole team for a collective effort across the pitch.
“It was a big ask for the girls,” Fenton said post-match.
“We’ve got a few people out for different reasons so we brought some of the younger girls in and I think they gave a really good account of themselves.
“It’s an improvement on last week and there’s definitely more positives than negatives that we’ve got to build on.”
Rovers had a host of chances to get something out of the game, but ultimately came up short in the final third.
“It felt like one of those days where there could have been no goalie in the net and they still wouldn’t have gone in,” Fenton added.
“We really went for it in the second-half and we were just really unfortunate not to come away with anything.”
“The talk to the girls was not to be too disheartened. It’s only two games and we’ve got to find our feet. There’s no one who has just come into the Championship and is flying.
“We’ve just got to look at the positives and not get too down about it and build on it and start to get some points on the board.”
