Preston North End are one of the form teams in the Premier League right now, having climbed as high as fifth place in the Northern Division following a slow start to the season.
On Sunday, the Lancashire side kept up their good form in all competitions with a 4-2 victory over Derby County and we talked to Preston goalkeeper Danielle Brown who told us that the team is getting stronger all the time and can challenge for silverware before the end of the season:
Does the recent run of results mean that the team is playing with a lot of confidence now?
Yes, I think we've finally fixed all the negatives now and are coming together as a team. I think that all we needed to do was just gel together well as a team and that's what we are doing now.
The victory at Derby was your fifth away win in a row, how good a performance was it from the team on the day?
It was excellent from start to finish. We did have a bit of a rocky finish to the game but we all stuck together and saw it out for the win.
Has there been any significant reason for the turnaround in results in the last couple of months?
I don't think so, I think we've just all come together as a team and play as a unit as opposed to being individuals. We started off in the beginning of pre-season and are more of a family now, things are starting to gel really well.
Do you still think you can challenge for a place in the top three in the league?
Anything can happen! Yes, I still think we have got a chance of doing it.
This week you are away from home once again, to Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Women's Cup. Are you confident of keeping the winning run going at Spurs?
Obviously you don't want to travel all the way down there from early in the morning and come home with regrets, so I think that all the girls are definitely up for it - not only for the journey down but also for the challenge.
Last season you reached the Fourth Round where you lost to Gillingham, having knocked out Yeovil Town along the way. Is a good FA Cup run important to the team?
I think that any good run in any cup or league is worth it, so whether it is the FA Cup or the wooden spoon, we've got a good chance either way. I think we should look back on the Gillingham game last year and learn from what we could have done back then but then again, it is practically a new team, so I reckon we have more of a chance now, especially with the heart that is in the team now.
At the time of asking, you are still involved in three cups and climbing the league rapidly. What do you think the club can achieve between now and the end of the season?
We're trying to push for anything we can but I honestly think we can finish in the top four and grab a few trophies as well - but as I said before, anything can happen.
