Claudia Moan: 5/10
Was at fault for both goals today. Let a speculative effort slip through her hands for the first and should have claimed a cross for the second. Will have better days.
Megan Beer: 7/10
Solid defensive performance and got forward well when given the chance. Ran all game as well.
Grace McCatty: 6/10
Kept things ticking over nicely, and was solid in the tackle.
Charlotte Potts: 7/0
Dealt with the Stoke striker very well and seemed determined to catch their keeper out with a free kick, nearly did.
Louise Griffiths: 8/10
Excellent in defending and attacking. Put in a beauty of a cross for Ramshaw’s goal.
Jessica Brown: 6/10
Ran her socks off all game but the play seemed to miss her out slightly
Mollie Lambert: 7/10
Strong as a bull. Looks a player who will play at a high level. Completely ran the midfield today.
Keira Ramshaw: 7/10
Took her goal very well and along with Lambert dominated Stoke’s midfield. A proper captain’s performance.
Neve Herron: 6/10
Had a great effort well saved in the first half, but her control let her down often today - that said, but never stopped wanting the ball.
Maria Farrugia: 7/10
Excellent ball control skills and very industrious. Passing was slightly off at times but a welcome return to the side.
Bridget Galloway: 10/10
Top marks. Scored three different goals today and the third was cool as you like. Ran the line brilliantly and didn’t give the Stoke defenders a moment of peace. Brilliant afternoon for her.
(SUB) Katie Wright: 6/10
Looked lively when she came on. Her pace scared the tired Stoke defence.
(SUB) Georgia Gibson: 6/10
Her height gave Sunderland a different dimension when she came on.
Faye Mullen: n/a
Replaced Herron for the last few minutes. Didn’t have time to influence the game.
