Hannah Hampton – 7.5

Made important save when needed but wasn’t called into action much. Kept possession moving from the back with great distribution.

Sarah Mayling – 7.5

Dependable as usual, solid at the back, won a lot of 50/50 balls and broke up play with great energy.

Meaghan Sergeant – 8.5

Solid in defence always on hand when needed and was always there to win defensive headers.

Anita Asante – 8

Reads the game well and is always one step ahead of the attackers, works effortlessly at times it seems.

Maz Pacheco – 7

Would be an 8 but we didn’t see any nutmegs today. Always works hard and is dependable.

Freya Gregory – 7

Worked hard on the wing with Maz to make sure Brighton didn’t get forward and won us a fair few set pieces.

Chloe Arthur – 8

She bossed the midfield, created chances and looked to create some clever through balls for the Villa attack.

Remi Allen – 8.5

Always in the thick of it and putting in a real captains innings. Marshalled the troops well throughout the game.

Worked her socks off, up and the down wing. Always a threat going forward for the team.

Ramona Petzelberger – 8

Always in the middle of the pitch looking to link up play, nearly got on the scoresheet as well as it went over the bar.

Jodie Hutton (on for Boye-Hlorkah 68th minute) – 7.5

Only on for a small time but made big impact as she held the ball well in corner and got Villa forward.

Came on and added pace and energy to the midfield to help see us through the final stages of the game.

Nathalie Haigh (on for Arthur, 90th minute) – 7
