Goalkeeper Lauren Perry sees plenty to learn from Rovers’ Continental Cup adventure and is looking to take it into the league, starting with Sunday's trip to London Bees.

The shot stopper was kept busy throughout the first-half against Aston Villa, pulling off some spectacular saves to keep the score at 2-1.

Gemma Donnelly's side eventually lost 5-2 and the Northern Ireland international gave an honest assessment of the cup clash in her post-match interview.

“Both sides had chances and the conditions were very icy which probably didn’t help,” Perry said speaking to the FA.

“They had more chances than us, so the score is probably a fair reflection.

“I was happy with my performance, I’m just happy to contribute to the team. If I can make saves, then hopefully they can go up the pitch and score at the other end.

“I’ve watched Villa before, and they do play some nice football so congratulations to them for progressing into the next round.

“We will take every game we’ve had in this competition as a learning curve. The result against Liverpool wasn’t what we wanted but we could take positives from it.

“Playing in this cup has helped us grow as a team and get closer together.

“We are just taking each game as it comes this season and looking to progress each week.”
