Crewe Alexandra striker Amanda Fallon was understandably delighted with her side's 2-1 win against Bolton Wanderers which put them thirteen points clear at the top of the North West Women's League.
The two teams with unbeaten records in the Premier Division met each other on Sunday and it was Crewe who were to stretch their lead with their tenth straight victory. Amanda, who scored both goals as they came from behind to win, told Women's Soccer Scene that it was a very significant result for her side: "With this being my fourth season at the club, I know just how hard it is to face Bolton. They are always a tough opposition and with losing to them first game of the season in the Cup, the result was massively important to us and the confidence that a win brings against a tough team always helps to carry on the momentum and keep us moving forward. With that in mind, we have a great squad and we all stuck together as a team to get the win we needed.
"Bolton are consistently good, so to go behind was disappointing, but the team has a great resolve and dug in hard to get the win. It was extra special for me as I scored two very good goals and probably had one of the best games ever played for Crewe, and as a striker there is always added pressure - especially in big games when you are losing. But football is a team game and it takes eleven players on the pitch pulling hard to produce a win."
This week, Crewe travel to play fourth placed Wigan Athletic and Amanda views the game as an extremely important one ahead of the holiday break. "Every game brings its own challenge but obviously morale and confidence are sky high and so it should be," she said. "We have shown we can compete and beat the best, we should be more confident in any game and it will be more a case of not being overconfident as Wigan are always a tough team to play.
"You have to treat every game with the same level of concentration and confidence or you can be undone, again we have a fantastic bunch of players, so each individual has to go out there with the same fight as we did against Bolton."
After having finished as runners-up in the last two seasons, Crewe are well placed to regain the Premier League status they lost in 2010 and, without looking too far ahead, Amanda insists that the club is well placed to move forward.
"To get to the Premier League would just be incredible and just the reward for all the hard work from the players, subs, managers and coaches this season," she said. "We deserve this and I think we will be there at the end of the season, we believe in ourselves and the managers and coaches are very confident we can do this too.
"We are ready for the next step in our progress as a team and ready for all the new challenges we have to face as a team."
