AFC Wimbledon are having a very good season in FAWPL South East Division One and their 1-0 victory over Denham Utd on Sunday - their ninth win in ten league matches - keeps them two points clear at the top of the table.
We talked to Wimbledon defender Linsey Clarke, who insisted that they may have won by a bigger margin against Denham and that the team needs to keep up their current form as they continue their title challenge:
WSS: Well done on another win, was the game on Sunday as close as the 1-0 scoreline suggests?
LC: No, the scoreline doesn't reflect the game. We had most of the possession and a lot more chances to finish but it wasn't our day.
WSS: Was it a nervous last few minutes when you were one goal ahead or did you always feel comfortable?
LC: No, it wasn't a nervous last few minutes as we as a team believe in each other.
WSS: That makes it nine wins in ten league games, was it a particularly important win after losing your previous one to Stevenage?
LC: It's always important to get a win after a defeat, as it shows what strength and mental ability we have as a team.
WSS: This week you take on Portsmouth in the Second Round of the SSE Women's FA Cup, presumably the whole squad are looking forward to taking on higher division opposition?
LC: Yes, we are all looking forward to taking on Portsmouth who are in a division above. As we have proved, we are more than capable of competing at a higher level and our narrow defeat to Charlton in the League Cup shows this.
WSS: The league is obviously the main priority but how welcome would a cup run be, if you could manage one?
LC: At the start of the season we always aim to do as well in every competition that we can. Things are going well in the league but good results in the Cup can only be a boost for the team's confidence.
WSS: Following the Portsmouth game you are scheduled to play second placed Leyton Orient in successive weeks, would you see them as your most important games so far?
LC: Yes, we are scheduled to play Leyton Orient in the next two matches but we as a club take every game just as important as any other.
WSS: The title race in this division is shaping up to be a really close one with several teams in the running, can you see it staying that way for the rest of the season?
LC: It may be close now but we will continue to keep pushing to make sure we keep the lead. I know it sounds a cliché but all we can do is take each game as it comes, and be confident that we will continue to compete right until the end of the season.
Our thanks to Linsey!
