Crystal Palace have been in excellent form in recent weeks and this has taken them to the top of the Southern Division, preserving their lead with a 5-2 victory over Cardiff City Ladies on Sunday.
We talked to Palace defender Pam McRoberts who admitted that the result against Cardiff was more important than the performance on the day, but looked forward to this coming Sunday when they take on second placed C & K Basildon in a vital top of the table clash:
WSS: Well done on a good win on Sunday, how satisfied were you with the way the team played?
PM: To be honest, it wasn't the best team performance. There were some great goals scored, but we were all disappointed to concede the goals we did. At this stage of the season, three points is the most important thing.
WSS: The win was your fifth in a row in all competitions, do you feel overall that the team is playing as well as it has been all season?
PM: It's been a bit frustrating as the weather has played a massive part in our fixtures being postponed and it feels like we haven't had a straight run of games.
WSS: Gemma Bryan was on target once again and is closing in on 30 league goals for the season, how reassuring is it to the rest of the team to have a goalscorer like her there?
PM: I've played with Gemma at two other previous clubs. She's always scored goals where she has gone and as a defender, it's nice to know she's up front!
WSS: It's not just about Gemma though, your defence has only conceded ten in nineteen games in the league. As a member of that defence, how proud are of you that record?
PM: I am very proud about this stat, hence why we as a team were so disappointed with the goals we conceded on Sunday.
WSS: This week you have a crucial top of the table clash against C & K Basildon, given in mind they narrowly beat you back in January, are the players itching to try and put the record straight on Sunday?
PM: Yes indeed, we felt like we didn't deserve to lose the game and it was a battle of a match. We know it won't be easy this Sunday, but all the girls are definitely looking forward to playing against them.
WSS: Realistically, do you think you need to win all of your last three games to stand any chance of winning the title?
PM: Yes, we've played the most games in our league so far. We need three wins and hope for others to drop points. There's been some games we have been disappointed with and dropped points, so we definitely want to finish the season with three wins, knowing we gave it our all.
Our thanks to Pam!
