Millwall Lionesses Manager was full of praise for his sides performance this weekend and commented on the togetherness and hard work they are putting in on the training ground:
“When we played this team earlier in the season they put eight past us and we looked amateur if I’m honest, but it shows the merit and progression of this team that we’ve now come to the stage that it’s come to the last kick of the game to get a winner against us.
You look at the last two weeks and we’ve played the team who are top of the league and the team who are fifth in the league and I don’t think if you’d watched either of those games that you’d have thought that. The girls work ever so hard in training and it’s just a shame for them that we’re not getting the results we deserve at the moment.
I think Chloe Sansom done very well, but to be fair, the chances that we had reduced them to were not easy chances. Yes, her hands were good, but it was also a merit to her team in front of her that have made her job a bit easier.
It’s hard because we haven’t been able to name the same defence two games in a row due to injuries and other circumstances around the team. It’s hard because with the goalkeeper and the back four you want to keep some consistency and unfortunately we haven’t been able to do that so merit to girls, we work all week in training on shape and they’ve come out and given a good performance.
Evie is another one who puts the work in and again she has come out and turned it on for us, I’ve got no complaints and I’m very happy with Evie.”
