Cardiff City Ladies captain Kayleigh Green praised her team after they defeated St Nicholas 3-0 in the Second Round of the F.A.Women's Cup.
"It was a great game," Kayleigh told Women's Soccer Scene. "We came out very composed and kept the ball well but the most important thing is that we came away with a win, so we're very pleased with that.
"We have to watch out when playing teams who play below ourselves as they can always come and show their strengths and take something away but as I said, we won 3-0 and that is a great result."
Cardiff are having a great season in the Premier League this year and Kayleigh is in no doubt as to what their main aim is. "We are a strong squad at Cardiff and what we are looking for this season is to be Champions," she said. "Gillingham are three points above us but we have a game in hand so it's all about keeping our composure and our focus."
Beth Lloyd scored the third goal in the win over St Nicholas and she admitted afterwards: "It was a little bit of a controversial one, whether it came off my stomach or arm - I'll say stomach but the main thing is it went in. Our first goal was a really good one though, a good team move."
Whilst Sarah Wiltshire took a lot of the headlines during her spell on loan with Watford, Beth has been in good form herself and is ready to shoulder the responsibility of leading the attack from now on.
"Last season I was injured with an ACL so this time I just wanted to come back, prove my place in the team and score goals," she said. "Sarah came to us on loan, put the goals in and now I've just got to carry that on and help the team out.
"As a striker you always want to score goals but if I can create some for other members of the team, that would be good. I want to score a few though."
Beth also insisted that a big factor in Cardiff's good form is their strength in depth. "Louise [Hutton] got injured so Annie [Pritchard] came in at the last minute and played well - we have got a big squad and don't have to depend on just our first eleven, so that proves us well and is a big positive."
