We talk to...Rachael Small (Aberdeen) - 4 Sep 2015 - Women's Football NewsAberdeen are enjoying one of the best seasons in their history to date and moved back into third place in Scottish Women's Premier League on Sunday with an impressive 3-0 win over Celtic. 
We talked to Aberdeen captain Rachael Small, who told us that the team have their sights set on a top three finish whilst speaking glowingly of the club's future: 
WSS: Was your performance against Celtic one of the best of the season so far?
RS: I wouldn't say our performance against Celtic was the best of the season. In the first half we weren't very direct in terms of going for goals and killing the game off, which was something we put right in the second half. We knew at 1-0 there was always a chance Celtic would get back into the game. The second half was a much more professional performance in terms of creating chances and finishing the game off. It was certainly a day where everything we had been working on was paying off.

WSS: Do you fully believe that the team is capable of finishing in third place?
RS: I fully believe we are capable of finishing in third place. We have a great squad and no matter who is on the pitch, they are doing a job for the team. We have very difficult matches leading into the end of the season but we are in a great position to go to Celtic away on the final day and be competing for third place which would be our highest ever finish in the league.

WSS: What has been the major difference this season with the team's improvement from last time?
RS: I think the coaching has been a major difference this season. We brought in an assistant coach in Mark Nisbet who I knew from Forfar and I fully believe that his knowledge of the women's game and coaching has improved our team massively. He has worked closely with the other coaching staff and made huge improvements to training. Focusing on our opponents in more detail has helped give us an understanding of how we need to approach each game etc.

WSS: This week you have a tough game against Hibernian, do you see this as another big test for the team's improvement?
RS: This week's game versus Hibernian will be a huge test for us. They have improved greatly and you just need to look at their league standing, where they sit neck and neck with Glasgow City, to see how good they are. We haven't managed to take a point off them yet this season but we will be preparing as best we can to improve on recent results against them and test ourselves against this league's best.

WSS: You're chasing your best ever finish, you have forged links with Aberdeen FC and brought in a number of good players in recent months. How far do you think the club is capable of going in the future?
RS: The club is definitely heading in the right direction. We are now partnered with Aberdeen FC, which is a great step for the women's team. I'm sure those ties will help attract young girls who support the men's team to come along and play for the women's team and the more girls we can get playing, the more talent we will have to choose from for the Premier League for years to come. Aberdeen are turning into a huge club in Scotland and I'm sure if we keep improving, then there's no reason why we can't become one of the best teams in the country.
Our thanks to Rachael!
