Allison Cowling 8/10
She made some crucial saves at crucial times in the game, was very vocal and commanding throughout. Another really good performance.
Faye Mullin 8/10
Made some class runs down the wing before unfortunately having to come off with an injury early in the second half.
Louise Griffiths 8/10
A strong presence at the back, she got stuck in with tackles throughout before making way for Neve Herron late on.
Charlotte Potts 8/10
The level of performance we’ve come to expect from the experienced centre half. Class as always set pieces, strong as an ox. Fantastic.
Grace McCatty 8/10
Our unexpected goal-scoring machine right now. Just like Pottsy, she was solid as a rock at the back.
Libby McInnes 7/10
She had a relatively quiet game but did her job well, withdrawn towards the end for Keira Ramshaw.
Grace Ede 7/10
A good performance from the 16-year-old on her full debut for her hometown club, before being subbed in the second half. It’s exciting to see how she develops as a player over the season and this experience will be important.
Abbey Joice 9/10
Like watching prime Kante, absolutely all over the pitch. Would’ve scored 10 but made a mistake that lead to Blackburn's goal.
Emma Kelly 7/10
Had auite game on the wing, I prefer to see her in the middle of the park. Kelly made some good attacking runs and provided some nice through balls for the overlapping fullbacks.
Holly Manders 8/10
Solid performance, with some great tackles and popped up with a good finish for the goal to give Sunderland the win.
Eve Blakey 7/10
The youngster showed some promise with great hold-up play, definitely performed much better second half after a quiet first. Maybe she needs to make forward runs and get in the box a little more.
Jess Brown 7/10
Did well playing in right back after replacing the injured Faye Mullin, made some great runs while overlapping Emma.
Emily Scarr 7/10
Came on alongside Captain Keys to bring experience to the pitch in the closing stages, and performed that role well.
Keira Ramshaw 7/10
Brought on to see out the game and did exactly that.
Neve Herron 7/10
Came on late on and kept the opposition at bay.
