It has been a very good week for Ipswich Town with three straight wins in eight days, and Sunday's 3-2 victory over Actonians Ladies has taken them level on points with FAWNL Division One South East leaders Billericay Town.
We talked to Ipswich midfielder Blue Wilson, who was understandably pleased with the way the team have started the season and revealed that they are setting their sights on a challenge for the title:
WSS: Well done on what has been a good week with two wins, do you look back on the week with a lot of satisfaction?
BW: Yes, it's always great to win and get three points, now our focus moves onto the next few games.
WSS: First of all you won the ‘Old Farm' derby match against Norwich, do you feel that was a scoreline which reflected the game?
BW: I think the score is probably a fair result, it was a tough game at times but overall we had the quality to win the game comfortably. It was a big match to win, especially in front of so many people, thank you to all the supporters who watched and made the atmosphere great!
WSS: How important then was it to build on that victory when you played on Sunday against Actonians, who are never easy opponents?
BW: Every game is crucial to us as we want promotion, again it was a tight game where it could have gone either way at times. We made it hard for ourselves towards the end but we learn from that and move on with the three points.
WSS: After having been two ahead, was it an anxious last few minutes after Actonians pulled two goals back and Amanda Crump then scored the winner?
BW: Yes, we bounced back quickly from Actonians scoring two goals and scored from the kick off. As a team, we learnt the importance of putting chances away to kill a game off and will take this forward into the rest of the season.
WSS: Overall though, the Actonians win takes you level on points with leaders and favourites Billericay, you must be delighted with that?
BW: Yes it's good to be at the top but our main focus is everyone doing their job in each individual game over the remainder of the season to achieve promotion.
WSS: Is it a little frustrating that this week you are playing in the County Cup, and have to wait another seven days before your next league match at Stevenage?
BW: A few players play in the U21 Academy team, who have a game against Manchester United on the 18th September, so regular games aren't a problem. Overall it gives us more time as a team to ensure we perform well in the next game.
WSS: After finishing in mid-table last season, do you think that you can keep up your good start this time around and keep yourselves in with the leading teams?
BW: Our aim is to win the league and get promoted. Coaches and players have changed from last year and therefore our expectations are a lot higher.
WSS: The top two teams ran away from the rest in the league last season, but do you think the league will be closer this time?
BW: I think the league will be close this year, there are a lot of tricky teams to play. Consistent quality of our performances is key and hopefully we can execute this to finish top!
Our thanks to Blue!
