Cardiff City Ladies are setting the pace in the Southern Division and currently lead the table by four points after beating Plymouth Argyle 5-0 on Sunday.
Cardiff striker Cori Williams is having a magnificent season with 17 league goals so far and this has resulted in her receiving her first call up to the senior Wales squad for next month's Istria Cup.
We talked to Cori who admitted that the squad is extra determined to make up for last season's near misses in both league and cup:
Was the win on Sunday particularly important, knowing that a lead of four points was on offer?
I think at this stage of the season every win is important. Knowing that they beat us down there gave us more determination to make sure it didn't happen again, but when you're at the top, every win is important.
Five goals also boosts your goal difference, did you think that you deserved that margin of victory?
We played well, very well at times and scoring three goals in the first half closed the game, but knowing we can go out in the second half and still perform and keep scoring is always a positive.
Your team has been amongst the goals all season, has this given a huge boost of confidence?
I think having three players who have scored into double figures this season has been very important for us, but as a team we don't really mind who scores as long as we get the victories that we need.
This week you take a break from the league with a League Cup quarter final against Coventry City, how much are you looking forward to this game?
I think this game is very important for us for the rest of the season. A good result on Sunday will see us into the semi finals and also give us the confidence and determination to push on in both the league and the league cup, showing people what we have to offer.
Do you think that your 1-0 win over Coventry in the semi finals last year will have any bearing on the game?
I think last season was totally different, we have different players and a new manager. We want to win every game from now on so Sunday will be as important as any other game we have played and will be playing.
Can you see the title race going to the wire this season?
Every season in this league it is always close and this season will be no different. There are many teams wanting and fighting for it and with the chance of a WSL2 place, it makes it even more important, so I can't see this season being any different.
Last season you went so close in both league and cup, is there an extra determination this time around to go one better?
As a team, whatever cup and league that we are in, we always want to win and do our best and after coming so close last year, I think yes, it has made us all want it that little bit more. We will give everything from now until the end of the season and hope we get what we have worked for all season.
