Kayleigh Green calling on teammates to show fighting spirit

  • +1

Arsenal Women visit the Winterstoke Stadium to take on Yeovil Town and Glovers striker Kayleigh Green, is calling on her team mates to show the same fighting spirit from their match a week ago.

Both teams will be hoping to book a place in the fifth round of the SSE Women’s FA Cup, but the home side will have to be at their best in order to spring an upset on the North Londoners.

With Arsenal Women bragging a whole host of silverware, along with a range of International players, Green’s side will need to take the grit and determination that her team showed in last weekends game in Birmingham, into this Sundays encounter.

For most parts of the game in the defeat to Birmingham last weekend, there was a Yeovil Town team full of energy and desire, but goals conceded at crucial times in the game, forced another defeat. However, with a break from league action, and with new surroundings at Weston-super-Mare, there is much optimism for a cup upset.

Yeovil striker and Welsh International Kayleigh Green said “The men’s results this year in the FA Cup has shown that the underdogs can get a result against the stronger teams. We are a determined group of girls who will keep fighting and with the support of our home crowd behind us, we will look to upset Arsenals hopes for silverware.

“We have to stay compact as a team, each individual has their defensive responsibilities and in Sunday’s game we have to make sure that we are strong and deny Arsenal the time and space on the ball.

“Although the result was disappointing, our performance against Birmingham was an improvement from previous games. We defended better as a team and made it difficult for Birmingham at times and the same will need to happen on Sunday. We have to make it difficult for Arsenal to play. We have to work hard as a team, give everything we have and most importantly believe in our own abilities.”
