We can go one better - Jodie
 Women's Football News 24 Aug 2007
 
We can go one better - Jodie - 24 Aug 2007Jodie Snelson insists that Lincoln City are not worried about their tag as favourites in the Northern Division this season.
 
The hot shot striker netted twice as the Lady Imps began the new campaign with a 5-1 victory away to Tranmere Rovers and she told Women's Soccer Scene: "We did really well. We were struggling a bit in the first half, we had more possession but were playing against the wind and went in level at half time but we scored 22 seconds into the second half and went on from there.
 
"It's always good to get your first goals of the season in, it gets the confidence up. Kez Smith pulled the ball back from the left and I hit a left foot shot on the turn for my first, and the second came from a ball over the top of the defence, the goalkeeper hesitated when coming out and I chipped it over her."
 
Jodie, who turns 21 in the next few days, was the Northern Division's top scorer last season with 20 to her name, a year after having scored an astonishing 75 goals for Sheffield United. "I had a lot of injuries last season, which was my first at this level, and I didn't get off to a great start," she says. "I was a bit surprised to be top scorer as Melanie Reay was not far behind and had games to play after we had finished, and I wasn't expecting it as it was my first attempt."
 
Lincoln finished as runners-up last season and are hotly tipped to go one better this time around. "I always set my high standards but this season I'm just looking for promotion," says Jodie. "After Sunday's performance, I am sure that we have a strong squad - just about strong in every position.
 
"We are confident we can go one better, everyone is looking sharp but it won't be easy. I think that Stockport will be strong contenders, Manchester City are usually good and difficult to break down and Preston are a strong side."
 
Jodie credits Lincoln manager Rod Wilson as being a big influence on her successful time with the club so far. "I soon found out it was totally different from Sheffield United," she admitted. "Rod has helped me a lot with my game and I have worked on things that I haven't done before. The attitude and approach to every game is completely different."
 
This Sunday, Lincoln take on Sunderland and Jodie has good memories of their meeting last season. "We beat Sunderland 2-0 in the Cup, when they were in the division above us, and I scored them both but it will be a tough game this time," she says.
 
"I'm not bothered with us being favourites. It means that we get better games, so bring them on!" she laughs.
