Swansea City gave their Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League title hopes a huge shot in the arm just before Christmas when they beat Abergavenny Women 1-0 to replace them at the top of the table.
We talked to Swansea striker and winning goalscorer Jodie Passmore, who was full of praise for the team's performance on the day and underlined their determination to finish on top of what is shaping up to be a very interesting title race:
WSS: Well done on an important win, how hard did the team need to work on the day in order to pick up the points?
JP: During the first half, I feel we dominated play and we were unlucky not to score three goals in quick succession, however we held onto a great lead and the team showed excellent resilience, especially towards the end of the game, to keep Abergavenny at bay.
WSS: After narrowly losing to Abergavenny on the opening day, were the team extra determined to make up for that this time around?
JP: It was always in the back of our minds that a win against them would take us top of the table and after dropping vital points to them at the start of the season, we knew we had to turn up and win.
WSS: How pleasing was it to keep a clean sheet on the day against such prolific scorers as Abergavenny?
JP: After a ropey start to the season and conceding more goals than we would liked, I feel now more than ever that our team has a strong defensive mentality.
WSS: You had an extra reward of course by going top of the league, how satisfying is it to be there at this stage of the season?
JP: It's brilliant! To be top of the league at any point of the season is a great achievement. Behind the scenes there's a lot of time and effort put in by numerous members of staff and as a squad we're dedicated to working hard. Smiles all around in the Swansea camp!
WSS: This Sunday you are at home to Port Talbot Town, what sort of game are you anticipating?
JP: As a squad, we never underestimate our opponents and the importance of every game and getting three points is crucial, especially now the way the league stands.
WSS: The title race in the WPWL is shaping up to be a very close one this season, can you see it staying that way?
JP: The top four teams all have to play each other again, so it will be a challenge, but we feel confident enough that we can remain at the top of the table.
WSS: How much do you think it would mean to the club if you can win the league title once again?
JP: It would be great for the club to win the title and play Champions League football again. The current squad we have is really determined and has a great work ethic, it would be great if we could win the title.
Our thanks to Jodie!
