We talk to...Joelle Murray (Hibernian) - 24 Apr 2015 - Women's Football NewsHibernian have got off to a good start in the Scottish Women's Premier League, winning each of their opening three league games and reaching the semi finals of the Premier League Cup with a penalty shootout win over neighbours Spartans. 
 
We talked to Hibs captain Joelle Murray, who praised her team's character during the Spartans victory and insisted that they are ready to mount a title challenge this season: 
 
Well done on winning on Sunday, was it as nerve wracking as the scoreline suggests?
Thanks, it was a very tense game. We had a lot of chances, hitting the bar twice but we couldn't seem to convert those chances into goals. I have to admit that I thought it was going to be one of those days where nothing would go in for us, until Lucy rose high above everyone else with a few minutes to go to equalise and take the game to penalties.

Was the win even more pleasing, seeing you had to come from behind on two occasions?
It showed great character to come from behind twice. We need to have the right mentality and mind set to play regardless of the scoreline and I think that was evident on Sunday. We continued to play good football throughout the 90 minutes and extra time and eventually secured our semi final place.

You have added new players to the squad since the end of last season, how have they been settling in so far?
The new signings have been fantastic, in women's football you tend to know everyone. A few of our players had played with the girls at national level or with them at the national performance centre so it was a very easy transition for them moving from their previous club to ours. The girls have added a much needed strength and depth to the squad, we now have competition in every position which was lacking last season.

Has it been a little frustrating that breaks for international matches have made it a 'stop start' beginning to the season?
The beginning of the season hasn't been ideal with international breaks and Champions League breaks and it's been hard to build any sort of momentum. However we now have a good run of games coming up where we can look to continually improve and build/grow as a team.

You made an improvement last year and went close to second place, what do you think is a realistic aim for Hibs this season?
We want to win the league, that's always our aim. I feel we have the quality to be up there challenging this season and will do everything we can to make that possible. The talent and desire in this team is incredible and we are all working towards the same goal.

This week you have another Edinburgh derby, this time against Hearts, how much are you looking forward to this fixture?
The Edinburgh Derby between Hibs and Hearts is probably more intensified and highlighted in the men's game opposed to the women's game. Being a Hibs fan it's always nice getting one up on Hearts at any level, however we will approach Sunday's game like any other and give them the respect they deserve.

Who do you think will be the main challengers to Glasgow City this season?
Other than us, I would like to think Rangers, Celtic, Spartans and Aberdeen will all be looking to compete.
