Sophie Ingle: We know what we are capable of

The 29-year-old explains what the team needs to improve on from Sunday’s performance, but has full belief that we will register our first triumph of the season at our Kingston Upon Thames home.

‘We need to move the ball a bit quicker and be more clinical in front of goal. That’s not just one player’s responsibility, that’s everyone as a whole team, we have to do better in those areas to make sure we are winning games.

‘We’re creating a lot of chances in games which is great but we have to put the ball in the back of the net which is the main objective. Everyone wants to beat Chelsea, we won the title and the Conti Cup last year, so we’ve got a target on our backs now.

‘We don’t feel pressure, we have a long season ahead of us and we know what we are capable of. We know we can and will score goals, our squad is full of world-class goalscorers – we are only just getting started.

‘Our mentality is to focus on ourselves, we don’t look too far ahead, we just focus on one game at a time.

‘It’s been a really strong week on the training pitch, we’ve all been working really hard to be ready for Bristol on Sunday.’
