Top spot the aim - Jo

Top spot the aim - Jo - 21 May 2014 - Women's Football NewsJo Potter insists that Birmingham City have their sights set on top spot in FA WSL 1 when they travel to play Arsenal on Wednesday night. 
 
The Blues would take over as the new leaders if they can beat the Gunners at Boreham Wood and the midfielder told Women's Soccer Scene following their 2-1 win over Chelsea on Sunday: "That's our aim. We can go into the break, hopefully with a really good week.
 
"Hopefully we can go down there and get a good result as we owe them one from the FA Cup.
 
"We needed a response this week, coming off the back of a defeat to Arsenal in the FA Cup and we got it. We played Aston Villa on Tuesday night in the Continental Cup and got a result there and managed to get a really important result [against Chelsea]."
 
Birmingham took an early lead through a cross-cum-shot from full back Chelsea Weston and came close on occasions to adding other goals, especially when Kirsty Linnett was denied on the stroke of half time by a brilliant goal line clearance from Claire Rafferty.
 
"You put the ball in the box and you never know what's going to happen," laughed Jo. "There aren't many full backs in the league who can cross a ball as well as Chelsea - in fact I don't think there are any - and sometimes that will happen, if you put the ball in the box you will score a goal.
 
"We came in at half time in front so that's the main thing. We knew we'd had the best of the chances and you can't ask much more of Kirsty than to hit the target and that's what she did, it was a great stop by Raffs on the line and that's what defenders are there to do."
 
Jo herself scored the winning goal in the second half with a fine header but she remained modest about her strike. "It was just one of those things, I could only put it in one spot," she replied. "It was a great ball in by Kirsty, she only had me to aim at and she put it right on the money.
 
"It was the perfect time to score for us and we know we can defend and keep a clean sheet, so we were always confident that we were going to see the game through.
 
"The league is so open and you can see with the other results that anything can happen. It's just the way that this season is going to go by the looks of it, you can't underestimate anybody. Before the start of the season it was ourselves and Everton who were the favourites to go down so I think that's probably changed just a little bit now.
 
"We've ended the week on a high with a win against a really good team and we go on to Wednesday now to play Arsenal."
