Colney Heath Ladies want a much better performance when they host Royston Town in the Women’s FA Cup on Sunday after losing 4-1 to the Crows in the league.
They conceded two in the first half and despite strong words at the break, it was 3-0 before Samiara Khan pulled one back with 12 minutes to go.
Even then though it wasn't the end of the scoring as Royston bagged a fourth and to cap a miserable day for the Lady Magpies, defender Kelly Glynn was stretchered off with a suspected ankle break.
Manager Paul Gleeson said: "Royston are a very good side and deserved the win but we offered very little in resistance and I'm really disappointed to surrender our unbeaten record in such a fashion.
"We will be working hard to ensure we are better prepared for our FA cup encounter.

"She is a more than welcome addition to the squad."
