We talk to...Tanya Rich (Guiseley AFC Vixens) - 13 Feb 2015 - Women's Football NewsGuiseley AFC Vixens are having an excellent first season in Northern Division One of the Premier League following promotion at the start of the campaign. 
On Sunday, Guiseley stayed on the heels of leaders Liverpool Marshalls Feds with a 4-3 victory against Mossley Hill. We talked to Guiseley captain Tanya Rich, who is also the division's leading goalscorer, who praised her team for their fightback from 3-1 down to win that game and insisted that they could maintain their title challenge until the end of the season: 
Congratulations on a very good win on Sunday, was the game as tight as the scoreline suggests?
Yes, the game was tight and finished in dramatic style. We always knew it was going to be a tough place to come and get a result, I don't think we were quite ready for just how much of a battle it would be. To be 3-1 down with only 15 minutes to go and manage to claw our way back into the game and come away with three points shows just how far we have come as a team and how much team spirit we have.

How important a win did you view it in terms of your title challenge?
Very important, at this stage of the season we have to be consistent week in week out. Whether the games are pretty or not, three points is what will keep us pushing in the title challenge.

Has the season so far exceeded your expectations or were you confident of being amongst the top teams?
Yes and no! We didn't exactly have the perfect pre-season. We had a reality check in a summer tournament that we had played in as to what the standard of football would be like in this league. Since then, the team has worked hard both on and off the pitch to get to where we are now. Seeing the quality and ability within the team and coaching staff, we set ourselves a target to be a top team In this league.

This week you have a long trip to play Morecambe, what kind of game are you expecting there?
Morecambe are a good footballing team, they gave us a very tough game at home. I expect the return fixture to be a very tough game and a challenge.

Do you feel that you can sustain your challenge for the title until the end of the season?
Yes I do feel that we can sustain the challenge. We take one game at a time, because the next game is the most important. We don't want to get ahead of ourselves.

Who can you see being the other main challengers in the run in?
The top of the table is pretty tight! There are 3-4 teams that are all in the running, depending on results, and in football we all know anything is possible.

If you can go all the way, just how big an achievement would it be for the club to do it at the first attempt following promotion?
Wow if we were to go all the way... Obviously it would be a massive achievement for both the club, players and staff but there's a long, long way to go and a lot of hard work to put in before we can as they say, dare to dream! Like I said previously, we are taking one game at a time and not really willing to look too much further than that.
