Hutton: "We can get a good result against Italy"

Defender Ashley Hutton believes the women's team can end their UEFA Women's Euro qualifying campaign on a high as they face Italy on Friday night.

It will be the last home qualifier for the Senior Women's side and they go into it hoping to make it three unbeaten home games in a row after a 4-0 win against Georgia and a 1-1 draw last time out against the Czech Republic.

On the Italy encounter, Hutton said: "They are obviously a top side and they are going to be good but if we can be disciplined and continue to learn from our mistakes we can go out and get a good result."

Hutton recently returned to the International setup and also spoke on the improvements she noticed in her time away from the game. She said: "It's got a lot more professional, the IFA have given us the backings we can make it a more professional team here, we have sport scientists involved now and the likes of Alfie (Wylie) his commitment in driving us on is phenomenal."
