Worthy of winning any match - Laura

Worthy of winning any match - Laura - 12 Oct 2012 - Women's Football NewsArsenal manager Laura Harvey savoured Kim Little's late winning goal which saw them retain the Continental Cup. 
"Kim's goal was a goal that was worthy of winning any football match," she said. "I think it was going to take something like that, because Birmingham's back four and goalkeeper played really well tonight and made it difficult for us to get shots on goal. It was always going to take a bit of quality, and thankfully we got that.
"With about ten minutes to go, I turned to Rehanne [Skinner] and said that we might have to start talking about the thing we don't want to talk about, which was extra time and penalties. Literally as I said it, Kim scored so thankfully it didn't get to that stage. Sometimes when you have the number of chances we did, you wonder if we going to get another one but to be honest Kim's goal wasn't even a chance, she created it herself.
"Birmingham have proved tonight that they can play football but are also really hard to beat and I think we've proved the same. We like to play football but we have grit and determination to see games out."
"We've gone unbeaten in the league and were really disappointed not to get to the FA Cup Final but to win this makes up for that and we've won another double," said Kim Little. "I think both as a team and personally, improvements can still be made. It was good to dominate the game today and win, but I think as a team we can definitely progress.
"I'm normally right footed but I like to use my left occasionally. It's great to score the winning goal in a cup final and for us to win was fantastic."
Birmingham City manager Dave Parker was gracious in defeat, admitting: "There were a couple of chances for us but on the whole Arsenal deserved to win as they were the better team. We weren't at our usual standards and not good enough tonight.
"We had a particular game plan and looked at it on Sunday but had to re-jig it. It almost worked as in the first half we had to weather the storm going down the hill but we didn't get going in the second half when we opened the game up and changed systems again. It's unfortunate but you have to hand it to Arsenal, they controlled the game and walked away with the trophy, and rightly so."
