Arsenal Ladies head into Friday's Continental Cup final against Lincoln aiming to make amends for being beaten to the Women's Super League title.

The Gunners lost the top-flight crown they had held for nine years, and also missed out on the top-two place needed for Champions League qualification.

"We're the Continental Cup holders and we want to win it again to go with the FA Cup," said manager Shelley Kerr.

"We also reached the Champions League semi-finals. It's not been disastrous."

Being docked three points for fielding an ineligible player ultimately cost Arsenal the WSL runners-up spot.

"The deduction was annoying and frustrating, but you have to move on," added Kerr.

"We've got a cup final to win and we have to concentrate on beating a Lincoln team that have been a pain in the backside to us.

"They're the only team in the league we've not beaten this season, and that's down to their organisation and discipline, especially in defence.

"So we know we're in for a tough game, and to win it our finishing will have to be more clinical than it was against them in the league."

The WSL games between the two clubs both ended in draws.

While Arsenal finished the season in third place, Lincoln were third-bottom.

Lincoln boss Rick Passmoor, who like Arsenal's Kerr is coming to the end of his first season in charge, said: "We've not delivered in the league, but we have in the cups.

"We reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup and now we've got the chance to finish the season with a trophy in the cabinet.

"We seem to be able to get under the skin of Arsenal and upset their rhythm, and that's what we'll be aiming to do once again.

"In the goalless draw we had with them at their place recently we had chances to win, so hopefully we can do the same again but this time find the net."

Lincoln are looking to collect their first major trophy just a month before they are renamed as Notts County in a controversial WSL franchise switch.

Referring to the fact that Arsenal are going for their 40th trophy in 21 years, and their third successive Continental Cup, Passmoor added: "It's a David v Goliath situation - Arsenal are the Galacticos and every one of our players will have to be on their 'A' game to win."
