Ellie Christon says Durham Women cannot afford to let their standards slip as they prepare for their final game of the season.
The Wildcats welcome Coventry United to Maiden Castle on Sunday (2pm kick-off) looking to bounce back from a defeat at Charlton Athletic last weekend.
And Christon is keen to see a positive end to the campaign secured.
“It’s been a long old season, but everyone is looking forward to try to end it on a positive note,” said the full-back.
“Especially after last week’s result, it wasn’t our best performance and we know that. We know it needs to be better.
“We’re just going to try and put things right and get a good result.”
Durham’s two clashes with Coventry already this term have been extremely close affairs – and Christon is expecting no different this weekend.
“It was really close at their place,” she explained.
“We did well to get back into the game, but we know they have threats going forward.
“We just need to turn up on the day and make sure that we do things right.”
A positive result on Sunday could see Durham secure their record points haul in the FA Women’s Championship – with the club already having matched that tally.
And Christon believes the squad will soon be able to reflect on another season of progress.
“We have to look back on it and see how far we’ve come as a club.
“This could be our best-ever season in terms of where we’ve finished and other stats as well.
“It’s hard to think about that because we’re so disappointed we haven’t gone all the way, especially when we know we have it in the squad to do that.
“But we have to look back, be positive, and try and finish on a high.”
