Determination pays off as we win away to Doncaster Belles

It was good to get an early goal because we knew Doncaster would put 11 players behind the ball making it difficult to break down.

We had to be patient and move the ball quickly and try and move them about. It stayed 1-0 for a while and I am never comfortable at 1-0 as the longer the game goes the other team is still in it. After the second goal we settled down and expressed ourselves. It was a comfortable win in the end and we played some good free flowing football at times. I even managed to get a little cheeky goal myself when I chipped the ball from just outside the box over the gk's head to make it 5-0.
