We want to put things right this weekend - Arthur

Bristol City Women midfielder Chloe Arthur says the squad are looking to put things right this weekend as the Vixens take on Liverpool in Widnes.

City Women suffered a 2-0 defeat last time out against Birmingham and Arthur says the squad have learned from the game and are looking to get back to winning ways.

Arthur has just returned to the club from Scotland camp in La Manga, where the team played two games against Norway and Russia.

She said: "Birmingham was a frustrating game for us and we weren't at our best. We had chances but we weren't clinical and that cost us ultimately.

"We have learned from it as we always do, and we are looking for a big showing this weekend.

"La Manga was a fantastic camp, a really good experience playing against two top teams. I love representing my country and I feel honoured every time I wear the shirt.

"The Bristol weather has been indifferent to say the least of late, so I can't lie, it was nice to get some winter sunshine!"

2017 was a big year for Arthur, becoming a key player in the City Women midfield and furthering her international experience, including representing Scotland at the UEFA Women's Euros in Holland.

Arthur added: "I must admit, it was a whirlwind at times. Promotion from WSL 2 was incredible, the Spring Series was a fantastic experience making the step up to WSL 1 and to then follow that by playing in the Euros was surreal.

"I feel I have made a strong start to this season, of course there are things I can improve on but I am learning all of the time. I can't wait to see what 2018 brings both for my club and country."

The Vixens face Sunderland on Saturday, February 10th. Tickets are available here.
