WOMEN'S WEEKLY

Posted on: Fri 26 Apr 2013

Chelsea Ladies moved to the top of the table following an impressive 4-0 win away at Doncaster Rovers Belles last weekend, leaving assistant manager Paul Green to reflect on a job well done against his former employers…

Playing away
It was a ruthless display by the Blues at the Keepmoat Stadium last Saturday with two goals in each half securing our first win of the FA WSL season.

A Sofia Jakobsson brace before the break put us firmly in the driving seat, and as the home side chased the game late on we were able to score twice more on the break through Eniola Aluko and Helen Ward.

The scoreline was a fair reflection on our performance, and Green was understandably delighted as he looked back on the game.

'I though some of our attacking play, especially on the counter-attack, was really good. With the pace we've got up front I thought we looked a real threat,' he said.

'Doncaster kept going and worked tirelessly. Coming back to Doncaster I knew it would be a hard game because I know the group very well.

'We had a solid start last week against Birmingham to get a point. To get three points against Doncaster was important. It's always nice to score four away from home, keep a clean sheet and be top of the league.'

Up next
Next up for Emma Hayes' side is another trip to the Keepmoat, this time to play our rearranged Continental Cup clash, which fell victim to the weather last month.

The game kicks off at 6pm on Sunday and the Blues will be confident of securing another positive result and progressing in the competition.
