Newcastle United captain Sarah Wilson talks about their win at Leeds and looks at the Northern Division in general...
Did you feel that the 4-1 result against Leeds was a deserved scoreline?
I do feel that we deserved the 4-1 win over Leeds. The girls showed commitment and fight to finish off the game, something we've been trying to do over the past couple of weeks. We've been playing very well but not getting the final result we deserve. Leeds were a very strong side and always looked dangerous on the attack but with a mixture of some good defending from the whole squad and some very good goalkeeping, we managed to hold out and took our chances on the counter.
How satisfied are you with the club's unbeaten start to the season?
I'm very satisfied up to now, however we need to keep on going. It's going to be a long season and there is so much quality throughout the league. Every game is going to be a battle, some teams we don't know anything about. Sometimes that can work to your advantage, not worrying about previous results against a team but it's always good to know what you're going to be up against.
Have there been many changes since last season or has consistency been the key?
There has been a couple of changes, we've got some new faces who have stepped up and done a fantastic job but they are mainly developments from our reserve team. Our squad as a whole, from reserves to firsts, are constantly learning and developing from each other. We are a relatively young bunch of players gaining experience week in week out.
In your three games so far, six different players have found the net. Is this something that is breeding confidence throughout the side?
Getting on the scoresheet does give a confidence booster, especially if you're managing to do it often. I do feel there is a certain element of confidence after a couple of decent results - however it's so important to stay grounded and understand how tough each game is going to be and that's a statement we do value. We keep each other grounded and prepare each other before each game. It's so important not to be over confident.
Has there been any other particular aspect in the team which has helped?
I think we've just started very positively, I don't think there has been any magic aspects apart from wanting to play, being committed to training and games and showing passion and character. In our first two games we came from behind to pull a draw out of the bag. That shows great determination in wanting to get something out of the game and not just giving up. We now need to ensure we keep on going in this manner to ensure we get the results.
This week you take on Bradford City in the League Cup. Is a good cup run particularly important for the club this season?
A good cup run is essential, especially when the pressure of each league game starts to kick in as it gives you a break from all that. Cup games are a bonus and anything can happen in these games.
Can you see the Northern Division being really tight throughout the season?
Yes most definitely! Up to now, lots of different teams have picked up and dropped points, some of which weren't expected. I can see this happening a lot, teams this year are so much stronger and every point is crucial. It's so important that we make the most out of every game so that at the end of the season were not looking back and saying 'what if'?!
