We deserved better - Cherrelle

We deserved better - Cherrelle - 3 Oct 2014 - Women's Football NewsMillwall Lionesses striker Cherrelle Albert felt the 4-1 scoreline in their defeat to Reading FC Women was harsh on her team. 
Three goals in the final fifteen minutes condemned Millwall to defeat and Albert, their goalscorer on the night, said after the game: "I thought we could at least nick a draw, until they scored their third and I think our heads went.
"I think we ran out of steam a bit for the last fifteen minutes and that's when they caught us on the break. We had a lot of opportunities and a lot of possession and I think we played some very good football.
"So did Reading and the luck went their way, but for me, 2-2 would have been a fairer reflection of the game. I don't think recent results have reflected the way that we've played, which is a shame because we deserve to have more points on the table."
The game saw Coach Dan Mlinar in the dug out for the first time this season and Cherrelle was impressed with the new man's contribution, adding: "Dan's been great. He brought in a lot of tactical info and a lot of organisation before the game.
"He worked on individuals, one on ones and reiterated our roles and responsibilities on the pitch, and I think everyone was a bit more pumped up. We felt we had a point to prove and wanted to get some points on the board. It didn't go our way but it was another great team performance and I can't fault the girls at all."
Albert also reserved praise for 16-year-old debutant Paige Anderson-James, who made a real impact after arriving as a half-time substitute. "She was just amazing," said Cherrelle. "She won the free kick which resulted in the goal. She had a fantastic shot that hit the bar and should have gone in. Well done to Paige, it was an amazing performance and hopefully she'll be in the squad again soon."
Paige won the free kick that set up Millwall's goal but it was Cherrelle that scored it, firing an unstoppable drive into the keep's far corner from the left-hand angle of the box. She talked us through her wonder strike, saying: "I definitely meant it.
"I do practice free kicks in training and I do a lot on my own time as well. I work in a football environment so I'm literally around the ball every day. I scored one like that when I was at QPR but I haven't hit one in a while, so hopefully there are more to come."
The livewire forward believes the Lionesses have suffered from not fielding a settled strike force this season but Cherrelle is confident that her current partnership is the solution to the problem, saying: "With the players that we've got and the system that we play, we're suited to going forward.
"Recently I've been playing up top with Lily Agg, which has been an amazing partnership for me. Throughout the season it's chopped and changed too much up front but I feel we have a good partnership and it clicks really well.
"If we play like we did today, create the chances and take those chances then there's no reason why we can't get three points against Yeovil on Sunday. The Den is our fortress, we can definitely get the three points, and we will."
