We have the confidence - Jess

We have the confidence - Jess - 1 Aug 2011 - Women's Football NewsJessica Fishlock insists there is more to come from Bristol Academy after they picked up their first away victory of the season. 
The Welsh international scored both goals as the Vixens won 2-0 at Liverpool and she told Women's Soccer Scene: "It was a good performance from us, but I wouldn't say it was our best one.
"We have played better this season but we took our chances and got the win which is equally important."
The win came on the back of Academy's narrow 3-2 defeat by Birmingham City in which they conceded two late goals and Jess admitted that the display in that game had given the team confidence. "I think everyone who watched our game against Birmingham felt for us a bit," she said. "We were the better side, controlled the game really and should have taken the three points.
"However they scored two wonder goals and took the points but we were happy with our performance and knew that if we kept playing like that, the wins would come.
"I think, for me, what was pleasing was that we didn't get caught in a battle with Liverpool. They are a difficult side to play against, they set up not to concede and fight for everything - if you play their game and just fight, then they have you where they want you. We steered clear of that as best we could and that was pleasing to see."
Jess herself gave Academy the lead from the penalty spot midway through the first half. The goal was not only their first away from home in the league but the first time they have found the net in the first half, but the team's last spot kick had been taken by Corinne Yorston. "There was no doubt, I'm the penalty taker when I'm on the pitch and Cori knows this. Penalties are mine," she laughed.
In the second half, Jess wrapped up the points with her second goal and might have added three more. Her goal against Birmingham was her first domestic league goal for nearly four years, due to her spell in Holland with AZ Alkmaar, and she now has three in two games since being pushed up front. "I don't know where these goals are coming from, but I'm enjoying it of course," she smiled. "I'm not your out-and-out striker but I seem to be effective at the minute so I'll just keep doing what I'm doing for however long the manager asks me to do it.
"I guess it was one of those days, I was just in the right place at the right time really. The girls played well and put balls in good areas - that's a good combination to have. Anouk Hoogendijk played a big part in the two goals and the second came from great team play."
Academy take a break from league action in midweek and their next game is against Doncaster Rovers Belles on Saturday, where Jess is setting her sights on a second straight win. "Our opponents are not what is important to us as we don't change our game to cater for them," she said. "We have more than enough belief, especially from how we have played in the last three games.
"What is most important is that we focus on ourselves and play how we know we can, if we do that we really can compete with and beat anyone in this league. We have the confidence, we just keep enjoying how we play and the wins for our performances will come."
