Albion boss not getting carried away
 Women's Football News 28 Aug 2011
 
Albion boss not getting carried away - 28 Aug 2011 - Women's Football NewsSporting Club Albion manager Dave Lawrence insists there is no reason to get carried away his side's 5-3 victory over Preston North End on the opening day of the Premier League season. 
 
Albion marked their debut in the league with the win following their Midland Combination title triumph last season but Lawrence was quick to outline the team were below-par in the first half. "During the first half we were a little bit shaky and na´ve while defending and we didn't really play as well as we know we can," he said.
 
"They needed a bit of a pep talk at half time as Preston are a good footballing team and we needed to provide more quality in the final third. We asked them to work on one or two of our defensive frailties in the second half and we did that well.
 
"We went 2-0 down in the first 17 minutes and they were two sloppy goals to be fair, we didn't clear our lines from set pieces and every time the ball got played into our box we looked a bit shaky."
 
Lawrence will take a great deal of encouragement from their second half display, and placed emphasis on the hard work done during pre-season. He added: "Our fitness levels kicked in during the second half and for the last 20 to 25 minutes we really bossed the game.
 
"I think as soon as we went to 4-3 there was only going to be one winner and I think we knocked the wind out of their sails with that fourth goal.
 
"I think Preston were the perfect benchmark for our first game as they just about stopped up last season."
 
Albion travel to Blackburn Rovers on Sunday (ko 2pm) and Lawrence said: "Blackburn will be a much better team, they'll pass the ball through midfield a lot better and retain the ball a lot more, as they were quite strong last season - it will be a tough game next week and we need to up our game again."
