Rovers keeper Lauren Perry says all attention must now turn to Sunday’s huge league game against Coventry United at Ewood Park, 2pm.

The shot stopper made her debut in Sunday’s Continental Cup tie at home to Durham.

But it was a bittersweet day for the Northern Ireland international, as two late goals meant Rovers were beaten 3-1 at Bamber Bridge.

"It was really good for me to make my debut, though obviously it wasn't the result we wanted as a team,” Perry said speaking to the FA after the game.

"It was good to get some minutes in the tank at my new club straight away.

“We played Durham last week and that was a tight game too. I thought that was reflected at times.

"Both teams were going at each other really well, and I thought we defended really well overall.

“It was just those last ten minutes that finished us off, though. Maybe we need to work on seeing games out in the final stages.

"Obviously we're back in league action this week so we'll turn all our attention to that now.

“We're playing Coventry so hopefully we can pick up maximum points there.

"I've settled in really well here so far, so long may that continue."
