Huddersfield Town are back in the top three in the Northern Division following their 2-0 victory against in-form Stoke City on Sunday.
We talked to Huddersfield midfielder Katie Nutter, who revealed that the team were delighted with the way they played in the win against Stoke and that a consistent run of wins would keep them amongst the top sides for the rest of the season:
WSS: Well done on a good win on Sunday, how pleased were you with the way the team played on the day?
KN: Yes, we were pleased with our team performance on Sunday, Ash gave us a game plan which we stuck to very well and saw it out to the last minute. We have critiqued ourselves in previous weeks for not having the game management needed to see games out, I think Sunday we proved to ourselves we can do it, hopefully we will kick start a string of wins together from here.
WSS: Was it particularly important to get a good result after the cup defeat to Guiseley last week?
KN: We played well against Guiseley, we dominated large spells of the game. Unfortunately, we took our foot off the pedal for a small period of the match and were punished for it. We know we are better than that and had to go out on Sunday to prove it and we did with a convincing 2-0 win over a very good Stoke side.
WSS: Two more goals for Kate Mallin on Sunday and only Middlesbrough have scored more so far, how big a confidence boost to the team is the firepower you have going forward?
KN: Kate is a huge threat in front of goal, we know if we can provide her with opportunities she will find the back of the net, the team are in high spirits from last week's 2-0 win and ready to go again!
WSS: You have had some very good results this season and some not so good, is it now just a case of finding that consistency in winning matches?
KN: Yes, complacency has been our own downfall at times this season so being more clinical is something we have been working on in training, we need to try covert our possession into scoring opportunities to kill matches off.
WSS: This week you travel to play Wolves who, despite their position, have given the top teams some hard games, what kind of match are you expecting?
KN: No match in this league is easy, having not played them before we don't really know what to expect, we will be focusing on our performance and executing our game plan.
WSS: What do you think would be a good season overall for Huddersfield?
KN: At the beginning of the season we set some goals, but for now we are taking it week by week and not looking too far into the future. Our main focus at the moment is to get three points at the weekend, pushing on from last week to hopefully get a nice string of wins together leading up to Christmas.
WSS: The Northern Division is once again looking very strong, who would you say are the main contenders for the league?
KN: I believe the four teams at the top of the table as it stands are all contenders. Blackburn, although they haven't played many, are in a strong position to be leaders for a second year.
Our thanks to Katie!
