Kim Little was satisfied following Arsenal's 1-1 draw against Birmingham City which has put them in the driving seat in the FA WSL title race.
The Scottish international scored a second half equaliser which means that the Gunners, although they trail Birmingham by two points, will be crowned as the inaugural Champions if they win their three final matches against Doncaster Rovers Belles, Everton and Liverpool.
"We managed to get a point but I think we really deserved more," Kim admitted to Women's Soccer Scene after the game. "We dominated possession but need to be a bit more clinical. It's a 1-1 draw and the league's in our hands, so we're pleased."
The Gunners needed to come from behind after a defensive mix-up had led to the Blues taking a first half lead. "Not many teams get in on us," said Kim, "it seems to always be sloppy mistakes which cost us, but we came back well."
A tactical change by manager Laura Harvey in the second half proved to be a major difference, Jayne Ludlow coming on to play in midfield and allowing Kim to push further forward. "We moved the ball quicker and used the wide players better so there was more space for me and it got better," she said.
Kim went on to crown a superb second half display by netting the all important goal, from Ludlow's flick on. Her reaction was typically modest: "I managed to get onto it and fire it in with my right foot so I'm glad to score and get us a point from this game."
Now Arsenal are in a position they have been in so many times and Kim is confident they can go on and finish as Champions once again. "We need to get nine points from our last three games and we win the league so that's what we're aiming for," she said. "We've won the league for the last number of years and have the experience in big games and big opportunities."
