Cardiff City Ladies moved up into fifth place in the FAWNL Southern Premier Division with a 1-0 victory over high riding Watford on Sunday.
We talked to Cardiff captain Cori Williams, who scored the only goal of the game. She praised her team for winning a tight match and looked forward to their forthcoming SSE Women's FA Cup tie with Durham Women whilst aiming to keep their good run going in the league:
WSS: That was a very good win for you on Sunday, was the game as close as the scoreline suggests?
CW: Yes, it was very competitive - both teams had chances to win the game, we were just lucky enough on the day we scored one of them.
WSS: That also makes it three clean sheets on the trot, and four in five games, how much confidence does it give the team to have a strong back four and a top goalkeeper in Laura O'Sullivan?
CW: We are in a process of building and I feel every week we are getting better and the more clean sheets we get, the more we will grow in confidence. Laura is a great addition coming back to Cardiff and having someone you trust behind you is always a bonus.
WSS: You got off to a great start to the season before going through a sticky patch around October/November, do you feel that you are hitting your best form now?
CW: I believe every week we are growing as a team and taking every game step by step.
WSS: Last season was a frustrating one for your team with a lot of narrow defeats, did the new faces who arrived during the summer make a big difference?
CW: Last season came with a lot of highs and a lot of lows like every season. We had a great run in the FA Cup and we competed well in the league. New faces coming into a team is always a good thing and when they come with experience like the girls have this year, it's always a positive.
WSS: You have no game this week due to the internationals but return next week away to Queen's Park Rangers, presumably you will be targeting that game to keep the good run going?
CW: We always work week by week and this game is no different. We will be going out with a set way to play, with trust and belief in each other and if we do the right things we will get the rewards.
WSS: The following week, of course, you play away to Durham in the FA Cup. Not the draw you would have wanted but is the team looking forward to the experience of that game?
CW: We always know in the FA Cup you can draw anyone and we will be prepared in the right way to get the right result. We've got a belief within the squad than we can challenge against anyone and what better way to test yourself than playing a team in the league above?
WSS: The Watford win takes you closer to the top three in the table, what is the main aim for the team for the remainder of the season?
CW: For us at the moment, we are in a place where we want to build as a team and progress week by week and see where that will take us. We believe we can compete with anyone in the league.
WSS: The title race is shaping up to be a very good one, can you see it remaining tight as the season goes on?
CW: Every year playing in this league it always goes down the last couple of games and I can't see this year being any different, it's a tough league with a lot of good teams.
Our thanks to Cori!
