Evans excited by cup challenge

Gemma Evans has challenged her City Women teammates to ‘redeem themselves’ and book a place in semi-final of the FA Continental Cup against Aston Villa tomorrow night (7:30pm KO).

The Robins are aiming to secure a place in the final four of the competition for the first time and the Wales international believes her team must trust the process and play with positive against the Villans at Twerton Park.

“We’ve all been looking forward to the game on Wednesday night. We’ve had a great cup run and we have performed well in all three games in the group.

“It’s a chance for us to redeem ourselves from our previous loss to Villa. We definitely didn’t perform how we wanted to, and it went completely wrong for us, so we have a chance to put things right to a degree.

“It’s been a good build up to the game. Since we have come back from the break over Christmas, training has been brilliant. It’s been high tempo and positive as we look to start the back end of the season with a bang.

“We have got to be positive; we have got to believe in ourselves and stick together. That should set us on the right path to getting the results that we want and a win on Wednesday will stand us in good stead for the games ahead.

“It’s a challenge we’re looking forward to. As a player you want to be in knockout stages and have a shot at winning competitions, because you want to have those milestones in your career.

“Everyone has come in determined to make that next step because that is where we want to be. We know we’re going to have to be on top of our game to give us the best opportunity to get into the next round.

“We have to believe in ourselves and play with freedom, sometimes taking the risk to get that reward. We have to trust what we’re doing and work together to get the result we want on Wednesday.”
