Quote of the Week:
“I think [Gotham] are on a good run. There wasn’t a lot between the two teams when we played them at home. We know that they’ve got threatening players, we know that Lynn Williams is on a good run of form and we have to be mindful of her. But at the end of the day, it’s about us and we’ve won our last two league games. We kept a clean sheet in the last game and we’re going to need that again. We’re going to need to stop their threatening players in the attack, we’re going to have to be threatening in the attacking third as well and score goals. Every game is a difficult game, it’s a challenge for all of us but we’re looking forward to it. We feel that we can go there and win a game of football.” -- Head Coach Seb Hines
