Allison Cowling: 6/10
No chance with the goal after a slight deflection and didn’t have an awful lot else to do.
Faye Mullen: 6/10
Not troubled defensively and always keen to get forward to support attacks.
Grace McCatty: 6/10
Solid performance at the back.
Charlotte Potts: 8/10
Got an assist with a great first half cross and looked very comfortable defensively.
Louise Griffiths: 6/10
Had a good battle with the Watford winger and got forward on occasion.
Emma Kelly: 7/10
A lot of Sunderland’s better play came through Kelly, who was comfortable on the ball and showed good vision.
Emily Scarr: 7/10
A hard working performance and came close to scoring a couple of times, with one curling effort just going over the bar.
Keira Ramshaw: 8/10
Good header to give Sunderland the lead, forced a great save from the Watford goalkeeper late on and a real captain’s performance.
Neve Herron: 7/10
All action display in midfield, always keen to put a foot in and had one dangerous shot from distance that just didn’t dip in time.
Libbi McInnes: 6/10
Kept relatively quiet but still put a shift in for the team.
Eve Blakey: 7/10
Hard working performance. Did not get a lot of opportunities, although did sky one effort over the bar late one, but led the line well and brought her team-mates into play.
Jessica Brown: 6/10
Came on with just over 20 minutes to go but did not get a lot of chance to shine.
Holly Manders: 6/10
Only came on for the last few minutes but did make one good run down the left but just failed to find a team-mate with her cross.
Player of the Match: Charlotte Potts
Looked a class above. Comfortable in possession, not troubled defensively, her set-pieces caused problems all afternoon for the Watford defence and got a deserved assist with a great first half cross.
