Gema Simon - 8

Handed the armband tonight, did her team proud and worked hard to shut down the opportunities for Ellie Carpenter to overlap. Her set piece delivery was also top notch.

Libby Copus-Brown - 7.5

Did a fantastic job breaking up attacks and out-enthused the likes of Kinga, Catley and van Egmond. Went close on a few occasions to putting her name on the scoresheet too.

Claire Wheeler - 7.5

The definition of 'actions speak louder than words' as Wheeler always leads by example with her high tempo workhorse attitude. Formed an excellent midfield pairing with Copus-Brown which helped the Jets press high and stifle the way City wanted to play.

Jenna Kingsley - 7

Got into some great areas but just lacked the clinical final touch. Almost won the game late on but for a great save by Williams.

Teigan Collister - 7.5

Always trying her hardest and up until the 67th minute it was all to little avail, but her strike was of the highest quality and worthy of any highlight reel.

Tara Andrews - 7.5

Toiled away up front and did a lot of dirty work that goes largely unnoticed. Almost grabbed a winner when she chipped Williams, but unfortunately for the Jets, it landed the wrong side of the post.

Nikki Flannery - 7

Almost broke the post from close range in the 72nd minute, and was always a good outlet for hew new side. A promising debut by the 20-year-old.


Lauren Allen - 6

Came on for the Colliester in the 74th minute, made a few incisive runs but struggled to get up to the pace of the game.

Paige Kingston-Hogg - N/A

Given a few minutes for her senior debut, had a half chance but otherwise not much opportunity to impress.

Pana Petratos - N/A

Came on for Kingsley, and then the final whistle went.
