A massive result - Rachel - 23 Jul 2011 - Women's Football NewsRachel Daly insisted that the team's hard work in training paid off as Lincoln Ladies came away from Bristol Academy with a 3-2 win in the FA WSL. 
The full back netted twice to steer her side to only their second league win of the season and inflict a first home defeat on their opponents.
"We worked hard and it was a massive game [for us]," Rachel told Women's Soccer Scene. "Bristol had never lost at home and to get a result against them was massive for us.
"We've worked hard in training and it was only going to be a matter of time before we got the win."
Lincoln had only found the net twice during the first half of the season but found themselves ahead after just one minute of play, courtesy of an own goal. "We've had a lot of unlucky situations so far in the league so it's about time we got a bit of luck and the own goal was what we needed," said Rachel.
The second goal came just twelve minutes later, Rachel herself being on hand to score from a rebound following a corner. "I was just in the right place at the right time," she modestly admitted. "We've done a lot of setpiece work in training and I've been in there scoring a few, so it's nice that it paid off."
Bristol Academy pulled a goal back early in the second half but Lincoln replied from another corner four minutes later, Rachel finding the net after scuffing her initial effort. "The first time I thought 'Oh no it's not my day' but I was lucky that I got the rebound and smashed it in," she smiled.
Lincoln needed to defend solidly at times to secure their win and Rachel paid tribute to goalkeeper Nicola Hobbs who gave an impressive display between the posts. "Nic has been our saviour this season," she said, "she has been a quality keeper from the word go. Kay [Hawke] started the first few games but Nic has waited and bided her time and she has been fantastic."
Lincoln also welcomed back their three England internationals - Casey Stoney, Sophie Bradley and Jess Clarke - after having been away in Germany with England for the World Cup. "They are dedicated and committed players, all three of them," said Rachel.
"It's lucky that we've got players like that to come back and work hard for the team."
