Poland preparations on schedule
 Women's Football News 30 Oct 2013
 
Poland preparations on schedule - 30 Oct 2013 - Women's Football NewsScotland coach Anna Signeul believes her side are ready for their toughest test yet in the FIFA Women's World Cup 2015 qualifying campaign, despite being hit by travel delays. 
 
Signeul's side take on their hosts on Thursday, looking to maintain their place at the top of Group Four, and she says that organisational refinements helped to negate a day spent at Edinburgh Airport on Monday due to technical problems with the Poznan-bound flight.
 
She told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "We evaluate things after every campaign, and last time round we identified that it would be beneficial to build an extra day in to away trips.
 
"That means the first day is a travel day. We get that out of the way and then get on to the training pitch. This is the first time we have had a lengthy delay, but we were okay because we knew we had time before the match. I have to say that I was glad we made the decision to travel a day earlier.
 
"The only issue is that we lost some sleep because we got to bed a bit later than we would have liked, but we have a couple of days to catch up on our rest.
 
"We arrived this morning, went straight to the pool for a recovery session, and had a good training session on the pitches at the hotel this afternoon. There has been no real change to our schedule."
 
Scotland defeated Northern Ireland 2-0 at Fir Park on Saturday to maintain their 100% record in the qualifying campaign, following 7-2 and 7-0 wins over Faroe Islands and Bosnia in the opening double header last month.
 
As the March to November league season in Scotland draws to a close, Signeul said that this week's training schedule at Hotel Remes Sport & Spa - Portugal's base during Euro 2012 - would be carefully balanced.
 
Signeul said: "The training and recovery facilities here are fantastic, and exactly what we need. Everything is purpose-built for football teams. We couldn't be in a better location ahead of the match.
 
"We expect the match against Poland to be our toughest yet in this campaign, but we have put ourselves in to a good position with three wins so far.
 
"Thursday's match is the last of four qualifiers over September and October, and with the league season drawing to a close, and many of our players still involved in the Women's Champions League, we will have a mix of recovery and light, but focused, training sessions this week.
 
"Recovery is hugely important, but we still need to have the right level of intensity at training for the players who were involved on Saturday, and those who weren't. Short and sharp will be the key words."
