We talk to...Anna Wilcox (Coventry United)
 Women's Football WPL South News - 10 Feb 2017
 
WPL South News - We talk to...Anna Wilcox (Coventry United) - 10 Feb 2017 - Women's Football NewsCoventry United produced the result of the round in the SSE Women's FA Cup on Sunday, as they became the only Premier League team on the day to beat a WSL 2 side, winning 2-0 against Oxford United with goals from Alison Hall and Jade Formaston.
 
We talked to Coventry defender Anna Wilcox, who praised her team's performance in beating the U's as well as looking forward to their plum Fourth Round tie against Aston Villa and the remainder of their Southern Division title challenge:
 
WSS: Congratulations on a terrific FA Cup win on Sunday, how well did the team play to pick up that result? 
AW: Thank you! It was a great performance from everyone. We knew, as a team, it was vital everyone put in a shift in order to get the result, credit to all the girls, we put in everything we could and fully deserved the result. 
 
WSS: Knowing you were up against a WSL side, did it give the team a bit of extra incentive going into the game?
AW: Of course, we went into the game with no pressure on us due to the fact we were the underdogs, which was reiterated by management but we always knew we were more than capable of getting the result. 
 
WSS: Did you ever feel in danger of not winning once Jade Formaston had put you two ahead?
AW: With it being 2-0, it calmed the nerves because we knew that we had the cushion of two goals. Oxford had more possession once it was 2-0 but as a team, we continued to battle well and we limited any opportunities Oxford had. Credit to Formo - the goal was really well taken, which also gave the team a boost in confidence.
 
WSS: Alison Hall was on target again on Sunday, how big a boost have her goals been for the team this season?
AW: I always have faith in Ali. The improvements she has shown in the past two seasons has been incredible. Credit to herself and all staff that she's worked with. Having scored so many already this season, Ali was going into this game with confidence and this showed with how she executed her goal and her work rate following the goal was excellent. 
 
WSS: The Fourth Round draw has handed you a home tie against Aston Villa, presumably the players are really looking forward to that one? 
AW: Of course! It should be a great game and we're more than willing to rise up to the challenge of playing against another WSL 2 side. It's nice to be the home side and hopefully we can get a decent size crowd to support us and we will go into the game with the same attitude and desire we showed when we played versus Oxford. Again, going into the game with no pressure on us will help us massively and allow the girls to relax and play our game.
 
WSS: In the meantime you play away to Queen's Park Rangers this week, does every game now take on extra significance in your title challenge? 
AW: It will be nice to get back into league action and I'm sure we will take the same attitude, confidence and work rate and apply it in the game this weekend to continue our push towards the title challenge. 
 
WSS: The top of the Southern Division has been very close all season, can you see it staying that way until the end?
AW: It's always going to be close in the Southern Division, it's important that we don't let standards drop and take every game as it comes.
 
Our thanks to Anna!
