Dowie and her team-mates are full of confidence as they travel to the Stoke Gifford stadium on Saturday to face Bristol Academy on the back of three consecutive wins.

The 26-year-old has scored four times in that period and Dowie says she relishes bearing the responsibility of being Liverpool’s main frontline striker.

“Confidence is massive thing for me,” Dowie told Sky Sports. “We all have our individual roles and we know what we’re out on the pitch to do but it’s always nice to be scoring and helping the team.

“I think most people probably look to me to score the goals which puts a bit of a bit of pressure on me but I enjoy that pressure.

“If the team and the girls are creating chances for me, it’s up to me to put them away and I just want to keep scoring and helping the team continue picking up three points.

“As a centre forward, getting in goal-scoring positions and putting them away is a massive confidence booster.”

Dowie will reach the 30-goal mark in her Liverpool career if she scores at Bristol this weekend and the Abu Dhabi-born striker says she will continue working hard to ensure the goals keep flowing.

“As a team we want to keep this run and this form going and if we can keep winning games we can push on from there,” she said.

“I scored 19 in 21 last season and I’ve scored a few this year so that’s really pleasing for me and pretty impressive even though I probably should have had even more,” she said.

“It’s important that I just keep focusing on my individual performance. I’m in a good place at the minute at club level and I’m involved with the national team as well.

“I’ll keep on working really hard and I’m sure it will keep paying off.”

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
