on the game…
I thought in the first half we played well and took our chances. In the second half, it was probably the most emotional 45 minutes of football that I think I’ve seen. Credit to Potsdam. They keep coming - the game is never over and we found that out last week at Boreham Wood. I thought our attacking play today was good. We were always a threat when we went forward.

on the challenge posed by Potsdam…
They always attack. We knew at 2-0 that the game wasn’t finished and they were going to keep coming at us as they had done in the first half. Suddenly they only needed one goal and the mentality of the game changes.

No team in England plays like Potsdam. The two games against them were the hardest we’ve had this season. When we drew Potsdam, we knew it was going to be tough and that’s something in England we have to change. When we play these games is when we get tested the most. We don’t have those tests like Potsdam do in their league when they play Frankfurt and Wolfsburg. The closest team to us, we still beat. We don’t have to try as hard as we did tonight.

on her own team’s attacking approach…
The team we picked was still adventurous. When Gemma Davison gets the ball, she can be unstoppable, but when we’re not in possession, she can be less effective at times. You have to play to her strengths and that counted for the first two goals because she can run at people. If we had thought about sitting and defending, we would probably have picked a different team. That’s the luxury I have because I have a very good squad.
