Gareth Taylor knows he has the players ready for the Everton match. The manager spoke prior to the Everton match and knows its an important match.

“They’ve got good options. Whenever we played them last season they did something different in every game in terms of their formation,” he reflected.

“We’ve got a bright enough and intelligent enough group here to come up against those types of systems and have a way and a style of playing against it.

“These are the games you look forward to, especially with it being on TV, it’s a big one for us, something we’re pleased to be a part of and a nice showcase to start the season.

“I think when you make a lot of signings you need to allow for a bedding in period. We’ll be in the same situation as Everton.

“I think they made more signings than anyone in the league so far so there’s a bit of a statement of intent there in terms of what they want to achieve.

“But anyone over the course of time says that doesn’t guarantee fluidity and function straight away, it’ll take time.

“We hope it’s a good game, we want to be successful and we hope we can come away with the result we need.”

A great match is set to kick off the FAWSL season.
