Mo Marley
Marley led Everton to a 3-2 success over Arsenal in the 2010 FA Cup

Everton Ladies manager Mo Marley says she wants to put their FA Cup exit behind them ahead of Thursday's Champions League game with Duisburg.

The Blues were beaten 2-0 in the cup by Arsenal at Marine on Sunday.

"I'd like to think our response from the performance will have a little bit more desire and fire," said Marley.

"Ultimately we'll go back to basics. Maybe this Champions League game was a little more in the players' minds rather than the Arsenal game."

Meanwhile, Liverpool Ladies have drawn Doncaster Rovers Belles in the FA Cup quarter-finals, after beating Charlton 5-0 in the fifth round on Sunday.

Scottish international striker Ruesha Littlejohn scored a hat-trick on her Reds' debut, with Suzanne Lappin and Katie Brusell getting the other goals.

After signing 10 new players ahead of the new season, Liverpool manager Robbie Johnson was delighted with their contribution.

"They've all added quality to the squad and one or two were significant against Charlton," Johnson told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"In particular the three Scottish girls and our new goalkeeper Andrea Worrell who signed from Manchester City."

The Reds will face Doncaster Rovers Belles in their quarter-final on Sunday, 27 March in Skelmersdale.
