Bristol City will go into this weekend's Premier League Southern Division match with Barnet looking to put last Sunday's defeat "out of their heads". Southampton Saints raced seven points clear at the top of the table last Sunday by inflicting City's first League defeat of the season, a 3-0 loss at Oaklands Park.
But City still have three games in hand on their Hampshire rivals and will be keen to put that defeat out of their minds ahead of Sunday's clash with Barnet.
Midfielder Sarah Roxburgh admitted to Women's Soccer Scene: "It was a disappointing performance and a disappointing result. Southampton wanted it more than us on the day and they played the ball around better than we did. They deserved the win.
"We didn't have ideal preparations ahead of the match due to bad weather, but overall it was still a bad display from us against our rivals.
"We must forget about that game now, however, and go into Sunday's match with Barnet with clear heads."
Barnet are having a troubled time at present, lying bottom of the table and John Jones resigned after 23 years in charge during the week, Tracey Kevins taking over as caretaker manager.
The utility player, known to her team mates as 'Roxy', added: "The title is still in our hands but we never seem to make it easy for ourselves.
"If we win all our games and they (Southampton) win all their matches then we will still win the League comfortably.
"That's our aim, though football often doesn't work as easy as that. We will concentrate on the Barnet match first and foremost."
