A delighted Natasha Dowie hailed Everton's second half performance as they defeated FA WSL leaders Birmingham City 3-2 to keep their own title hopes alive.
Everton had trailed at the interval following a disappointing first half display and Natasha told Women's Soccer Scene: "We got a bit of a rollicking at half time but I think we deserved it. The team gave a poor performance in the first half, especially after the one against Arsenal which was probably the best we have played in a good while.
"In the second half we came out and showed what we are about and in the past, we probably wouldn't have come back from 1-0 down. But in the last couple of games we've got stuck in and won the battle and played some good football as well.
"Hopefully we can push on, it's five [wins] out of five now and that's brilliant."
However Natasha was at a loss when trying to explain the first half performance. "You can make all the excuses you want," she replied, "but to be honest we just came out slow, Birmingham bullied us and deserved to be one up. It was good that we got to half time and could have a chat about things.
"In the end I think we deserved it. Birmingham are a terrific team and you can tell why they are at the top because they're strong physically and a lot of their players are very good - but we are probably the form team and fingers crossed that can carry on for the rest of the season."
Natasha played a prominent part in the fightback with two goals and smiled: "I'm glad I got a couple of goals and that I helped the team get the points."
Now Everton come up against Lincoln Ladies on Sunday as they seek their sixth victory on the trot. "There are no easy games in this league now," warned Natasha. "Lincoln have just signed Jodie Taylor, who is a great centre forward and I think a striker is what they needed. They drew with Birmingham so it's not going to be an easy game again.
"We just need to keep winning our games and we know that with the team that we've got, and the strength of depth we have, we're capable of doing that. We've got to believe in ourselves - we've won five out of five now so why not win another one."
