We are in a postive mindset going into the Yeovil game - Roberts

Bristol City Women assistant manager Chris Roberts says the squad are determined to put things right ahead of tomorrow’s Continental Tyres Cup match against Yeovil Town Ladies (kick-off 7:45pm).

The fixture will now be taking place at Taunton Town FC.

Roberts, who arrived from Hibernian Ladies in October, believes there were many positives to take from the defeat at the weekend to Manchester City Women.

City Women’s 9-19 technical director says the team have the ability to challenge any team in the country and after big performances against Arsenal and Chelsea, the key for the team is doing it on a consistent basis in all domestic competitions.

Speaking ahead of the West Country derby, Roberts knows only too well the threat that the Glovers will bring this weekend.

He said: “I have watched Yeovil a number of times this season, including our home win against them last month, they are very well organised and tough to play against.

“They have a real attacking threat and we will need to stand up to that so we can impose ourselves on the game. It is a must win game for both sides in order to progress in this competition, so I think it will be really tightly contested.

“The weekend was a disappointing result for us, Manchester City had a lot of the ball in the first half and despite not being at our best we created chances throughout.

“The second half was much better, but overall, it wasn’t the result or performance we wanted. We will learn and take the positives into training this week, then we will go to Yeovil looking for a positive result.”
