Kathryn Hill was delighted to net as Durham Women beat London Bees – having felt confident she would find the net before the game even kicked-off!]
The full-back’s second goal for the club was an important one as it helped the Wildcats to a vital three points in their promotion push.
And she is now looking ahead to the visit of Chelsea this weekend as Durham look to right the wrongs from last year’s FA Cup exit.
Here’s Hill’s views in full…
Hill on her goal against London Bees:
“I actually said to Wills before the game, I’m going to score today!
“I’ve been playing on the left all year, so now I’m playing on the right I thought I was going to have a go.
“It opened up on my left foot, I stepped in and just had a go.
“It was one of those games where it was going to take a good goal to win the game.
“It was alright, I’ll take it!”
Hill on the game itself:
“The wind was quite bad, it was cold, there was snow when we came out.
“It was a scrappy game but these are the games you’ve got to try and grind out results in.
“Thankfully we got the three points and that’s the most important thing.”
Hill on not being distracted by Chelsea:
“We spoke all week about the Chelsea game needing to be in the back of our heads.
“This was the most important. We want to do well in the league and finish as high as we can, so it was a really big focus on today.
“We’ll take care of next week now the game is over.”
Hill on the half-time message:
“Even before Lee came in, we said that it wasn’t good enough.
“We weren’t moving the ball quick enough and we felt we could do much better.
“He obviously told us the same thing so we tried to things a bit quicker and put the pressure on them.”
Hill on the FA Cup clash with Chelsea:
“We obviously got the quarter final last year and let ourselves down a bit on the day.
“We’ve learned from that and we want to put in a big performance.
“We’ve already knocked Bristol out who were on a great run, so we’re going to give it our all and see what happens.”
