“We found the pockets of space and the goals came”

Alex Taylor felt the team put in a good second-half performance to take all three points against Bradford City Women on Wednesday night.

The Blues held a slender 2-1 lead at the break before a seven-goal onslaught made it a convincing victory for Gemma Donnelly’s title-winning side.

“The girls came out and just performed,” Taylor said post-match.

“Credit to Bradford, for the first-half they frustrated us. But we just got the better of them in the second-half.

“We had goalscorers from all over the park.

“We were passing the ball around and keeping it moving. We found the pockets of space and the goals came.”

Rovers scored nine or more in a league match for the third time this season, taking their total number of goals to a division high 110.

“We’re working on it in training - crossing and finishing - and the girls are just putting them away this season. You can see from our goal difference how good it is, it’s great to see.”

The Blues play three games this week with Guiseley to come on Sunday following last weekend’s League Cup Final trip to Burton.

Rovers then meet Fylde Ladies in the FA Women’s Challenge Cup Final on Thursday 9th May, before the Championship play off against Coventry United Ladies on Saturday 18th May.

And Taylor believes it’s perfect preparation for those two cup finals.

“It’s tiring, but we can do it, we’re fit enough. Last year we had loads of games and we pushed through right until the end.

“Let’s go for the Championship play off Final and win.”

Rovers play their final home game of the season on Sunday, against Guiseley Vixens at Bamber Bridge.
