It has been a busy week for Bedworth United, but ultimately a successful one with three victories, including a 2-1 win over previously unbeaten Wolverhampton Wanderers, to catch up ground on the top two in the FAWNL Division One Midlands table.
We talked to Bedworth captain Jodie McGuckin, who paid tribute to her side for getting through three tough matches in a week and is confident that they can build on their good start in their first ever season in the league:
WSS: Well done on what has been a really good week for your club, how tough a few days has it been for the team?
JM: Thanks very much! It has been a really tough few days, both physically and mentally. It's been really difficult to not let tired bodies and tired minds get in the way of playing our kind of football. It has also been devastating picking up two serious injuries in the squad in the last seven days.
WSS: Was beating Wolves on Sunday the best you have played so far this season?
JM: I don't think that was our best game of the season technically but overall, of course. We played extremely well! We played with a lot of heart, determination and passion.
WSS: The winning goal against Wolves came late on, how good a feeling was it when Kirsty Farnsworth scored?
JM: The best feeling in the world! Especially after the penalty miss and them (Wolves) going close a few times.
WSS: Do you think that the wins over Burton Albion and Solihull Moors earlier in the week gave the team a huge boost of confidence going into the Wolves match?
JM: We played some really good football against Burton. However, the Solihull Moors game was a tough away midweek fixture. I don't think we played very well and going into Sunday, we knew we needed to step up our game.
WSS: This week you have no game and it is the County Cup the week after. When you are back in league action it is a trip to leaders West Bromwich Albion, how much are the players looking forward to that match?
JM: A week off is just what we need after three tough games back to back. Our players are excited to play West Brom and again, we know we will need to be at our very best to take points off the leaders.
WSS: The result against Wolves means you have gone level on points with them, and just three points off the pace. Are you doing better than you expected or were you always confident of being amongst the top teams?
JM: Going into this league, we knew it was going to be a huge test. However I was always quietly confident with our current squad and adding some key players, that we were going to be "in the mix".
WSS: Based on what you have seen so far, do you feel that Bedworth can stay as serious contenders in the title race for the remainder of the season?
JM: I think as long as we stay focused and take each game at a time, we are definitely in with a good chance of being contenders throughout.
Our thanks to Jodie!
