On the 3-0 away win
"A very good, convincing win and the only negative is that it could have been more convincing. We believe the tie could have been finished because we did create a good number of opportunities throughout the game."

On Sparta Prague...
"I think the first goal will be crucial in the next leg because Sparta are not a bad side. They're a very good containing team who hit you on the counter and they're very efficient at that. They sat in their own half, containing and were very good at transitions and on the counter."

On the return leg at Boreham Wood next week...
"Sparta have got to come and have a go and that will leave them a little exposed at the back and we can damage them then. If we can score against them then I think that should be enough to take us through to the Quarter-Finals."

On the season so far...
"They're playing really well and the girls are all working extremely hard. There's a good unity and a good team spirit. It's been a good start but we're still looking for more from them. The energy, the enthusiasm and the quality we have in the group is superb."

On Julie Fleeting's return at the weekend....
"It was an ideal opportunity to give her an outing and she scored two goals. She's class."

On the Women's Premier League match against Chelsea at the weekend...
"It's a difficult tie, Chelsea are a strong side but we'll go there confident and focussed and with respect for the opponents. It's another big game for us and these are the sort of games the players love."
