Sian, we are back in league action on Sunday as we travel to Oxford United. What are you expecting from it?
“I am expecting a really tough game. We are all excited to be back to the fixtures after having no match last weekend and we are expecting a really tough test against a strong Oxford side.
“We have done our research and know that they have some really high quality individuals and a fantastic group spirit.
“They have had a mixed start to the season but we are under no illusions that it is going to be a really tough game on Sunday.”
How have we used the last two weeks, with there being no game last Sunday?
“We have worked on some bits and pieces that we needed to improve individually and as a team. We are building on the style of football that we want to play.
“It has been good to have the time and it has given the players the opportunity to reflect on the last couple of performances and most importantly to refocus before we get back into games.”
How are we doing on the injury front as we have had some time for players to recover?
“We have a few players that have picked up a few knocks during this time period. We have come off the back of a three game week which is always really tough.
“The medical team have been working really hard to get the girls back on the pitch in preparation for Sunday.”
We have a chance to get a third win on the bounce on Sunday. What positives will you take from beating MK Dons and Gillingham?
“We had some really positive aspects in our play which we were pleased with. We have looked to build on that and how we impose ourselves in fixtures.
“We are hoping we can go and put another strong performance in against a very good side in Oxford and come away with something this Sunday.”
The team togetherness is there to see at the moment which has been helped after two convincing wins?
“I think it has been a journey for us because we had a big turnover period at the start of the season where we had a lot of players and staff coming in and out.
“The group is really starting to form and you can see the friendships that are starting to build, which is transforming onto the pitch.
“I am hoping this good feeling continues after the next few games.”
Hannah Porter and Jo Wilson have hit the ground running since coming in. Are they expected to feature this Sunday?
“They have both been fantastic since coming in and have been quite calm characters within the group which has added some composure to what we do.
“Hannah had a great impact against Gillingham from attacking set pieces and her defensive performances have been spot on, along with the rest of the defence as well.
“Jo has been fantastic since coming in too. We know what Jo is capable of and she has lived up to expectations with that. We just hope we can continue to support her so that she can play at her best.”
How important can the fans be in getting this third win on the bounce?
“Oxford is not too far away so we are hoping we can see a few friendly faces because it always adds something special for the players.
“It would be lovely to see some familiar faces there that can push us on for another three points.”
