Amy Gallacher, who scored in the 2-1 win over Cardiff on Saturday, is suspended following her sending off in the second-half. But Grant is confident his players can see the job through.

“It will be another tough challenge but we think we’ve got areas of the pitch that we can control and hurt them,” he said. “It’s all to play for but it’s a game we want to go and win and make everything certain. We’ve got a good opportunity. The girls have done great to get to this point with two wins out of two so that’s all you can ask for.
