Coventry City went through to the Fourth Round of the F.A.Women's Cup with a 3-1 victory over Stoke City, earning themselves a home tie with either Plymouth Argyle or Brighton & Hove Albion.
We spoke to Coventry's Welsh international midfielder Hayley Ladd who told us about the team's delight with their Cup run and aims to pick up a trophy this season:
Was it good to be playing again following the enforced break and back with an FA Cup win?
It was really nice to be back playing in a competitive match for Coventry after what it seems to be ages! We're all really excited about progressing as far as we can in the FA Cup so it was positive to have a good win at the weekend.
Were you particularly pleased with the way the team started the game, with the early goals?
Considering we haven't played a match in a while, I was really pleased in how we played and especially getting those early goals helped us to relax a bit and to control the game better.
That makes it six wins in a row in all competitions, do you feel the team has been improving during that time?
Definitely. I feel especially at this point in the season we're approaching every game now with a really solid sixteen players and I'm confident that we can go on and win many of the remaining games left.
What did you think of the draw in the next round, at home to either Plymouth Argyle or Brighton & Hove Albion?
I think we are pleased as we avoided a Super League 2 team, but believe we're up for any challenge so would be approaching the next round positive and confident whoever we were drawn against.
If you are able to get through that one, would you want a WSL team in the last sixteen?
Yeah like I said, we try not to be focussed on any particular team we are or not due to play. That being said, the opportunity to potentially prove ourselves against a more high profile/ better ranked team is something that we all are looking forward to and something we would definitely love to do.
Do you feel you are still in the running for the Southern Division title?
Yes, definitely. With players returning or going to Super League clubs now for the summer, the division will change a lot and seeing as our team hasnt changed, it puts us in a very strong position.
You are also still in the Premier League Cup, the draw is not easy but are you confident that you will be up for the challenge?
We are very confident at the moment so yes, we will be challenging for a good finish in the cup. Despite the draw, we have got very good strength in our squad now and so aren't put off by any big games.
Is there firm belief within the squad that you can pick up a trophy this season?
Our aim is to do the very best that we can and so if that involves a trophy, then that would be a great finish to a positive season. The County Cup is our most realistic chance, but achieving silverware in the league or league cup would be that extra bit special.
