Rovers Ladies will look to record back-to-back victories when they travel to face Hull City Ladies on Sunday, (2pm).

Gemma Donnelly’s table-toppers returned to winning ways on Tuesday night, beating Guiseley Vixens 5-0 thanks to four goals from Saffron Jordan and Lagan Makin’s strike. 

That result sent the Blues 10 points clear with two games in hand and seven games to play. And the Rovers manager is looking for a similar performance on Sunday. 

“I’m hoping the momentum of Tuesday will carry us on,” Donnelly said. 

“It’s an important game to demonstrate that it wasn’t a one off and we can maintain a good performance.

“Although we’re not complacent, I think the girls are eyeing up securing sufficient points to win the league so everyone can take a breath and reflect on how successful the season has been.”

Rovers beat Hull 2-0 in the opening home game of the season courtesy of goals from Natasha Flint and Hannah Walsh. 

“It was a good team performance, and albeit they have been a bit inconsistent, I expect them to step up against the league champions, as every team does. 

“They’ve had some interesting results against tough opposition so the girls will have to provide a top performance tomorrow to come away with the points.”

Loanee Fran Stenson is still injured so Amelia Size will remain with the first-team, while Serena Fletcher faces a fitness test ahead of the fixture, after going off injured in the win over Guiseley.
