Huddersfield Town have got off to a good start in the FAWNL Northern Premier Division and are on maximum points from their opening two games following their 2-1 win away to local rivals Guiseley Vixens on Sunday.
We talked to Huddersfield wing back Millie Turner, who praised her team mates for their second half display against Guiseley and insisted that the team is capable of building on its promising start:
WSS: No doubt it is always pleasing to win a derby match, how hard did you have to work on Sunday against Guiseley?
MT: It's always especially pleasing to win a derby match. We had a disappointing first half and didn't play to the standard we know we can. After half time we completely took control of the game and thoroughly deserved the three points.
WSS: Katie Nutter scored both goals and now has three in two games, how pleasing has her start to the season been?
MT: Katie is such a key player within the squad and always plays such an important role in our performances. She has had a great start and really deserves the goals she's scored as her work rate is exceptional.
WSS: As things stand, you are one of only two sides in the division to have won both of your opening games, you must be delighted with the way things have started?
MT: It's a great start, and it is what we planned to set out and do, but we have a very long season ahead of us to it is just important to take each week as it comes.
WSS: How busy have the summer months been at Huddersfield, have there been many changes at the club?
MT: There has been a couple of changes at the club, with a new assistant manager (Lee Harrison) being appointed as well as some new additions to the team. Everyone has slotted in so well and there is such a great dynamic within the team.
WSS: You take a break from the league this week to play in the League Cup and have a tough looking tie at home to Middlesbrough, but presumably the team will approach this match full of confidence?
MT: We always set the same standards before each game and look to go into this one like any other. Preparation in training has been great and the whole team is feeling very positive and can't wait for Sunday.
WSS: Last season the team finished in a credible sixth place, do you think you are now ready to get up amongst the top teams this time around?
MT: The team is definitely capable to compete at the top. This was still the case last year, however we dropped vital points against teams where we possibly shouldn't have. We beat an undefeated Blackburn side so we knew we had the quality to compete. This year we are definitely looking to do that and push on.
WSS: Blackburn will be going for a third title in a row this season, do you see them as the team to beat or can you see any other sides emerging as challengers?
MT: The league is very tight this year and it will be important to get results against everyone. Blackburn are a very well organised team and at times are difficult to break down but we have a great set of players within the team and as a collective we are capable of being very successful this season.
Our thanks to Millie!
