We need to be clinical

“I want us to be clinical in front of goal when we create opportunities but disciplined throughout the team”

24 November 2019

Gemma Donnelly wants her Rovers Ladies team to take advantage of their chances when Crystal Palace come to Bamber Bridge on Sunday, 2pm.

The Blues failed to get on the scoresheet in Thursday’s night defeat at home to Liverpool and Donnelly still sees plenty to learn from that game going into this crucial Championship encounter.

“There are many positives to take from Thursday and I hope that the positives can be repeated,” Donnelly said.

“Crystal Palace will be, as all teams have been so far, a tough opposition. 

“Apart from our analysis, we know little about them and can see that they have had an inconsistent season to date, albeit their strengths are grinding out results away from home.

“For us, we want to continue to build and pick up points so the game will be interesting as we will both be keen to get something to get some from this fixture.

“I want us to be clinical in front of goal when we create opportunities but disciplined throughout the team and brave to stick to the plan for us to get a result.

“On Thursday Saffron Jordan played in midfield and did an excellent job despite what the scoreline suggested.

“She demonstrated why she is captain as she epitomised the hard work and desire demanded for a Rovers player.” 

Tickets are available on the gate at The Sir Tom Finney Stadium, priced at £5 for adults, £3 for concessions and £2 for juniors.
