On her goal clsoe-range goal, she added: "I couldn’t miss really. It was a great ball in the box from Nats [Natalie Ross], so I couldn’t miss and I’m delighted to get the goal.

“I think it was a statement [win]. Three goals, we dominated most of the game which shows we are up there. We want to win the league, we want to win the cups, so I think it was a confident victory from us.

"From the start of the season we have believed that we could win things this season. We’ve been playing well, except from that Rangers game so we need to keep those performances up. "
