Newcastle Utd produced one of the results of the round on Sunday when they defeated Nottingham Forest 2-0 in the Second Round of the SSE Women's FA Cup.
We talked to Newcastle captain Brooke Cochrane, who was delighted with both the result and performance from her team and is looking forward to taking on TNS Ladies in the next round:
WSS: Congratulations on a great win on Sunday, how pleased are you with a win against a team from the division above?
BC: I'm absolutely over the moon with the result from last week. I couldn't be any prouder of the girls. We definitely deserved the result we got and there's still a big buzz around the team.
WSS: Would you say it was the best performance the team have given this season?
BC: Definitely! We all worked for each other up until the very last minute and never gave up. We played some great football and it was good to show what we can do as a team.
WSS: Last season you were beaten 5-1 in the league by Forest, was it nice, for some of the team at least, to put the record straight with this result?
BC: I think the result last weekend might have surprised a lot of teams around us, especially the ones above us. It's always a great feeling to pull one back over a team who have beaten you in the past and I think that definitely showed in our celebration!
WSS: The draw for the Third Round has given you a home tie against The New Saints, how satisfied are you with that?
BC: Very! There's nothing better than a home draw especially in a cup game where anything can happen. We've got great support behind us but it'll be even better to have them there on the sideline cheering us on.
WSS: The winners of that game could potentially play against a WSL side in the next round, does that give the team a bit of extra incentive?
BC: It's definitely driving the team forward and pushing us to see how far we can go. We love a challenge and to play a WSL team would be a great chance and test where we're at as a team.
WSS: This week you have another tough match in the Plate away to Hull City but presumably the team will approach this game with a lot of confidence?
BC: This weekend is a new game and just because we got a result last weekend doesn't mean we can be over confident or complacent. Hull are having a very good season so far and are in a position where we should and want to be in the league. We will definitely take the feeling that we were left with last week into this week's game as a massive boost but we know it won't be an easy game.
WSS: Is it fair to say that it took the team a little team to adjust to the league this season?
BC: It's taken time to adjust into the league but also to gel as a team. We've had changes to our squad this season and with all new teams, it takes time to get used to each other and understand the way we all play.
WSS: Now things are looking up for the club with some good cup wins, what do you think would be a realistic aim for Newcastle for the remainder of the season?
BC: The aim for the girls should be to get as many points as we can from every game, finish as high as possible in the table and push to the end of any cup/plate we're in.
Our thanks to Brooke!
