Brighton & Hove Albion have had a tremendous start to the season and their 2-1 win over Coventry Utd on Sunday means they remain at the top of the Southern Division with seven wins from their eight matches so far.
We talked to Brighton winger Charley Boswell, who was delighted with the result against Coventry and revealed the squad's determination in going one better than last season, when they finished as runners-up:
WSS: Well done on an excellent result on Sunday, has that been as good a win as any so far this season?
CB: Thank you. It's been one of the most important as teams like Coventry will be contending for the league so picking up points against the stronger teams is always a positive.
WSS: It was a great time to score a winning goal, but would you have been satisfied with a point just before that?
CB: To have got a point against a strong Coventry side would have been great, but I don't think anyone in the team wanted to 'settle' for a point which is why we kept working hard and looking for the winning goal right up until the last minute - in this case that hard work paid off.
WSS: After going so close last season, is the team extra determined to go one better this time?
CB: Absolutely, last year's end still leaves bitter memories for us all. There isn't one player in the squad that isn't prepared to give their all and do what it takes to contend and win the league this year. We are all working extremely hard to try and make that happen.
WSS: This week you have another important game against Portsmouth, do you think your recent win in the League Cup might have any bearing on the game?
CB: For us, winning the game in the League Cup gave us a huge confidence boost. However, we aren't silly enough to think that Portsmouth will be an easy game, they will want revenge. We need to stay focused on ourselves and our own performance no matter what the previous results have been.
WSS: Do you think the summer signings have made the team a stronger one this season?
CB: Bringing in new faces always brings a new buzz to the camp so it has been positive. With the new girls coming in we have been able to have a reshuffle with the team which is certainly paying off, especially when it comes to scoring more goals.
WSS: Who do you see as being your main rivals in the title race?
CB: There are a few strong contenders, Charlton, Coventry, Cardiff and Portsmouth - but every game is a tough one and they all count towards winning the league, so we have to be prepared to play every game as if any opposition were league contenders too.
WSS: Brighton are a very ambitious club with high hopes for the future, can you see the club realising its potential in future years?
CB: Yes and it is something the club deserves. On the field, the football has improved massively and that's due to the coaching staff and all the hard work the players put in. Brighton are a very committed group. But no one sees all the hard work put in behind the scenes and without all that support, the Ladies wouldn't be given the opportunities they have to this day.
