Charlton Athletic manager Stuart Weston was delighted with his team's reaction to going a goal down as they came from behind to beat West Ham 2-1 at Sporting Club Thamesmead.
Second half crackers from Kim Dixson and Emma Harrison cancelled out a Cherrelle Albert opener to give the Addicks three points in their first game of the FA Women's Premier League season.
Weston said: "From my point of view as manager, when [West Ham] came out and scored, it was the way the girls reacted to that.
"Their heads didn't go down, it almost gave them the bit between their teeth and they went at them again.
"And it didn't take us too long to equalise, with a great free kick from Kim, and then another great finish from Emma."
The hosts could have made it easier for themselves but they missed a plethora of chances in the opening period. But Weston was pleased the amount of opportunities created and hopes more goals will come as Charlton go into their next game away to Lewes this Sunday.
"In the first half we were the stronger side and should have gone in three or four-nil up," he added. "We made the chances but, unfortunately, we just couldn't convert them.
"In the first half we restricted them to long range stuff so I went in at half time happy with what we were doing, it was just the finishing that wasn't there.
"On other days they go in and you go into half time 4-0 up and you have to take the positives from that.
"Some of the best teams come away with three points having not played their best football and I think that shows a good team."
