Alex Scott is confident Arsenal ladies can overcome their recent disappointment of losing to Liverpool to beat Notts County in the Continental Cup quarter final on Friday.

The teams face off at the Hive for a place in the semi and the Arsenal veteran knows that they are in for a  tough match.

“They’ve got a frontline with Rachel Williams, Ellen White and Jess Clarke so they can trouble any defence they meet,” Scott told the FA.

“But when we played them at Meadow Park, we were able to deal with them so we’ll review the footage from that game and take the positives into Friday.

“We want to keep it in their half and keep it up the pitch and not be defending all the time. 

“We’ve got to step up and do our jobs when it’s needed. The key to success has been a winning mentality. 

“It is one-off games that you have to show up and perform in, and that’s what we’ve got to take into league performances. 

“It’s about being consistent and treating every game like a one-off game where we’ve got to go in and get the win.”

Notts County will no doubt be looking revenge for losing to the Gunners in the FA Cup quarter final on penalties and also for losing the final of this competition last year, to the same opposition, thanks to a Jordan Nobbs brace and a third from Chioma Ubogagu.

The match kicks off at 7pm, the same time as the men face Vikings.

The teams then face each other again on 28th August (with no games in between) in the league.
