Fylde Ladies produced one of the results of the round in the SSE Women's FA Cup when they won 3-1 away to Sunderland.
We talked to Fylde captain Danielle Young, who praised her team mates for the win against Sunderland and looked ahead to taking on Keynsham Town in the Third Round:
WSS: That was a tremendous result for you on Sunday at Sunderland, just how pleased were you with the way the team played?
DY: We were fantastic, we showed on Sunday that we have not only now got quality but we have found that desire to work for each other. We really have that team ethic and there was no way we were losing that game.
WSS: Was it any advantage at all for you, going into the game, that you had already beaten Sunderland this season on the opening day?
DY: Anything can happen on the opening day, it's always the case, so for us, no I don't think it had any influence. We knew Sunderland had made some strong signings since so they were going to be a different team and a much more experienced one.
WSS: The Sunderland result comes on the back of five wins out of six in the league, do you think the team is hitting its best form now?
DY: Yes, it's the best we've been this season but we still have a long way to go. We've come on a lot in all aspects recently but still we have a lot to improve on the pitch. It's a great run of form yes, and we're very proud of it, but we need to not take our foot off the gas and we must continue to improve and dominate.
WSS: The draw has handed you a long trip south to play Keynsham Town, who are flying in their division this season. Do you know much about Keynsham, and how tough a game are you expecting there?
DY: I played them many years back and they were a strong physical side then, having checked them out and spoken with some contacts I have down south, I know they're still a strong side irrelevant of the league they are in. They also proved that in the second round, beating a higher opposition, so we prepare for this game as much as we do for all our games. We really want to do well in the FA Cup and get as far as possible so we're determined to not let standards drop.
WSS: Will there be an even bigger incentive going into the Keynsham match, knowing that a win gives you a great chance of drawing a WSL side in the next round?
DY: Yes certainly! That's our aim, we want to test ourselves.
WSS: You are also on your travels this week to play Guiseley Vixens, presumably you will approach that much full of confidence?
DY: Yes, it's a chance for us to add to our unbeaten run in the league. We go there wanting to take all three points and nothing less.
WSS: As things stand, Blackburn are looking red hot favourites to win the league but do you feel that Fylde are very much involved in the title race?
DY: We're very much in the mix for the top three but Blackburn have been incredible this season and I don't see anyone getting near them as it stands. For us, we're just looking to pick up as many points as possible and finish as high as possible.
WSS: With the likes of Sunderland coming into the league, is the feeling that the Northern Division is a stronger one this season?
DY: Sunderland have strengthened the league, yes, but the league has been strong for a while. I don't think it's got the credit it has deserved in the past.
Our thanks to Danielle!
