Mollie Lambert says that Durham Women’s win over Sunderland has lifted the entire squad – ahead of a cup clash with Manchester United on Thursday.
The midfielder netted the second goal in the 2-0 triumph and believes the victory at the Hetton Centre was a vital one – for several reasons.
“It’s really, really important – especially with the run we’re going to have after the international break.
“We went in at half-time and we knew what we needed to do. We knew it wasn’t our best performance and in the second half it still wasn’t our best – but we got those two goals.
“It’s been a tough game, tough conditions, but we’re happy with the three points.”
Lambert’s goal was her first since January and first of the campaign – which left the midfielder delighted.
“I’m buzzing,” she admitted.
“Obviously I left Sunderland and came here and my goals have dried up – and they did at Sunderland.
“So it’s nice to get on the scoresheet this season – my celebration obviously needs work though!”
Next up are Manchester United at Maiden Castle on October 14, with Lambert admitting the side will go into the game full of confidence.
“We were saying, the more we win the better our performances get.
“We’ve got Manchester United this week and that’s lifted all of us in the camp.”
