Jordan: We shot ourselves in the foot

“We’ve got a long season to go yet and I’m confident in our team”

Captain Saffron Jordan felt deflated with Rovers’ inability to see the game out, as Coventry scored an 88th minute equaliser at Ewood Park on Sunday.

Her two goals had Rovers in front, but there was a late twist when Shannon O’Brien netted for the visitors and denied the Blues back to back league victories.

“Our first half wasn’t our best performance,” Jordan said speaking to the FA post-match.

“I think we were lucky to get an equaliser just before half time. But second-half we played them off the pitch.

“We had so many chances, the football that we were playing was what we wanted to be playing the whole of this season.

“But again with set pieces we just switched off and presented them a goal.

“The girls know what was going wrong – we needed to wake up. We were forcing the ball a lot of the times.”

The striker still sees positives to take, with Rovers moving up to eighth in the Championship table.

“We’ve got a long season to go yet and I’m very confident in our team. I think we will survive and be looking towards mid-table.

“We just needed to play our football that we’re confident in and that we’re known for.

“It’s a point, a valuable point but could have been more."
