Lisa Robertson believes the ‘massive character’ within the squad will be key as the Wildcats look to bounce back from successive draws.
Stalemates against Charlton Athletic and Aston Villa have seen the Wildcats lose some ground at the top of the FA Women’s Championship – but Robertson has backed her side to bounce back and continue to pursue their promotion aspirations.
And the midfielder – who joined from Hibernian in November – has reflected on her first goal for the club.
Read her full thoughts below:
On the draw with Aston Villa…
“It was a game full of chances.
“In the first half we just weren’t clinical enough.
“The wind didn’t help but both teams are playing in the same conditions.
“Eventually we got ourselves back into it but we’re disappointed not to go on and win it.”
On netting her first goal for the club…
“There was a mistake and a loose ball and I got onto it.
“I tried to stay composed and thankfully I slotted it in.
“I wasn’t brought in to get goals but I’m happy to score – although I would have preferred the win more.
“They always say you’re most vulnerable just after you score and we were.”
On the character shown against Villa…
“There’s massive character in this team.
“The conditions weren’t great, but everyone battled to make sure we weren’t going to lose.
“We worked very hard in the second half to make sure we got back into it.”
On another result at home…
“It’s very important.
“You want people to come here and have to battle us.
“Home form can be key for us.”
On how the side will bounce back against Crystal Palace…
“I think we just need to pick ourselves up and continue where we left off at the end of last year.
“I don’t think we’ve started as well as we ended, and I think everyone knows that.
“So we’ll reflect on our own performances, reflect as a team and come back against Crystal Palace making sure we’re all at it.”
