MILLWALL LIONESSES boss Lee Burch wants his side to fix what went wrong in their Continental Tyres Cup defeat to Watford last week.

Adekite Fatuga-Dada scored the only goal of the game to hand the Lionesses their first loss since their FA Cup defeat to Bristol in March. Burch made a number of changes to his side but expected a better result.

He said: “It was disappointing, we expected to come here and go away with a win. Unfortunately we didn’t do that. “Fair play to Watford, they played well and shaded it.

There was a little bit more desire from them at times. “We made six or seven changes, the girls that came in did well but some of them looked like they hadn’t played in a while, which is to be expected.

“Overall, we know we’re better than that and hopefully we’ll go away and use it positively. It hurts but we have to bounce back.” Millwall are not back in league action until October 28. “It’s not ideal now to have a couple of weeks’ break. We’ll look to get a friendly before we go to London Bees,” Burch said. “We need to make sure that everything that went wrong we fix, that we take our best foot forward and go into the Bees game like we have the previous ones. “It’s three games in seven days so it’s going to be a tough week with Arsenal and the Bees again in the cup. That will be another opportunity to rotate and give players the chance to play.

I’m looking forward to using the squad for that week and going forward.”
