ROVERS Ladies came from two goals down to book their place in the semi-final of the Lancashire Cup at the expense of Blackpool Wren Rovers.

Rovers went into the break with a mountain to climb after conceding two fortuitous goals, prompting boss Andy McNally to throw on Hannah Bailey as an extra striker.

Within five minutes of the restart, McNally's gamble paid off as Bailey pulled a goal back with a hooked effort after cutting in from the flank.

Katie Anderton then equalised for the visitors before Anisha Bateman completed an amazing comeback with a 25-yard effort in the dying seconds.

"I'm obviously well pleased with the result but at times during the match I could have throttled the players," said McNally.

"It was vital to get the result as, realistically speaking, this is the only trophy we can win this season. But once again we've done it the hard way.

"We always seem to get there in the end though, one way or another, and that's why we are on such a good run. Remaining undefeated is important to us although eventually I'll be looking to strengthen in certain areas."
