Arsenal Ladies boss Laura Harvey believes her team will have no-one else to blame but themselves should they fail to win the Women’s Super League.

The Gunners kept their title bid on track after securing a 3-0 win over Doncaster thanks to goals from Kim Little, Ellen White and Steph Houghton.

“The outcome of the Super League is still in our own hands again and that always has to be the plan,” Harvey told

“If we go on and win the title from here we would have done it through our own merit. No-one can punish us now but ourselves.”

Up next for the Gunners is a crucial match against Everton at Boreham Wood FC on Thursday.

The Toffees have been Arsenal’s closest rivals over the past few years and inflicted a 3-1 defeat on the Gunners earlier in the season.

If Arsenal can avoid a repeat against Everton and also beat Liverpool in their final fixture they will be crowned champions.

And Harvey insists her side will be able to cope with the pressure of such a big occasion.

She said: “We have been in a number of high pressure situations over the past few years and also this season. We have been in these high pressure situations before and very rarely do we not deliver."
