We talk to...Cheryl McCulloch (Glasgow City)

We talk to...Cheryl McCulloch (Glasgow City) - 6 May 2016 - Women's Football NewsGlasgow City have opened up a lead of six points at the top of SWPL 1 after they defeated Hibernian 2-0 in their top of the table clash. 
We talked to City defender Cheryl McCulloch who praised her team for their 'professional' performance whilst admitting that the league's new format has made it more competitive this season: 
WSS: Having had so many close games with Hibernian recently, how pleasing was it to pick up the three points?
CM: It's always pleasing to pick up the three points. I thought we could have played better and have played better this season, but it was a professional performance from the team. We took our chances and were disciplined defensively, which prevented Hibs from creating many chances. Fiona Brown had a brilliant game and it's good to see her back to her best after a long time out with injury.

WSS: With one exception, all of your games have been close ones this year, is each game getting tougher now?
CM: I think with making the league smaller, the league is more competitive and the standard is getting better. I think the more games we play, the better our performances will be and will increase throughout the season.

WSS: That's five clean sheets now in six matches, that must be extra pleasing for the team?
CM: As a defender it's pleasing to keep a clean sheet and concede as little as possible. I was disappointed to lose the two goals in our game against Forfar - in every game I play, I want to keep a clean sheet but most importantly, we got the three points and that's all that will matter come the end of the season.

WSS: There have been a few changes to the squad since the end of last season, how have the new players settled in?
CM: The players that have come in have settled in well. Sav has been brilliant at the back for us and slotted well into the back line. Ruesha was with us previously and her and Gemma have brought in some experience to the squad. The younger girls are getting better with the more game time they get and training they do each week.

WSS: This week you take a break from the league for the League Cup semi finals, what sort of game are you expecting against Aberdeen?
CM: It's never an easy game against Aberdeen. Their results against us and Hibs show they are not to be taken lightly. I'm surprised at their league standing but I'm sure they will move up the table as the season progresses. We know we need to be at our best to progress to the final.

WSS: What have your early impressions been of the new league format in Scotland?
CM: I think the standard is better as there are less teams and that can only benefit the league and the teams/players in the league. Everyone wants the league to be more competitive and hopefully as the season progresses, it will continue to be.
Our thanks to Cheryl!
