MANAGER Marta Tejedor hopes Blues will have a spring in their steps on the back of a five-goal haul – even if she admitted to wanting more.

Rachel Williams and Lucy Staniforth bagged doubles with Adrienne Jordan scoring her first Blues goal in a 5-1 victory over Leicester City in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup.

And while Tejedor watched her charges create a number of other openings, she was particularly happy with the way Blues continued to push for more right to the end at Quorn.

“I would have liked some more goals but it is not easy in this kind of game,” said Tejedor.

“The difference between the teams can be big when you are at different levels, you might create a lot of chances but you cannot expect to score all of them.

“We had moments where we played some good football and I am happy with that.

“The general attitude of the players was very good and you could not say they got relaxed, they kept trying for the whole match which is something I appreciate a lot.

“The question is (about) the one thing we are struggling with this season, putting the ball in the net, but the number of chances created was very high.

“You should never feel too confident but we said before this match we are building the team for the next few matches as well because feeling glad about your performance helps you to look at your week in a different way.

“It is a good way for us to look forward to the next game.”

Jordan, a summer signing from Italian club Atalanta, raced down the left and finished at the second attempt to give Blues a four-goal cushion just before the hour mark.

“It is always nice when people who don’t get so many chances, usually because of their positions, manage to score and you see their faces looking so happy,” added Tejedor.
