Liverpool Ladies The FA WSL 5
GOOD EVENING and welcome to our first home league game of the 2013 season at Halton Stadium. Weve just had back-to-back games against Chelsea that produced vastly different results. A 2-1 defeat was followed by a 4-0 win. The main reason for those score-lines was the fact that we took out chances in the second meeting. It was a completely dominant performance, emphasised by the fact that we had 32 strikes on goal. We stuck to our game plan, whereas the week before we had started well and gone in front before losing our way slightly. We stopped playing and got in a battle, which cost us.
That pair of results are similar to our games with Arsenal where we lost to them in the FA Cup before then winning at the Emirates in the league. So weve learnt from our defeats, although Id rather we learn without losing. We can develop through registering victories too.
The next step for us now is to find real consistency. If we have aspirations to challenge for titles and trophies Ive told the players its about being mentally strong and ruthless. We had those qualities in abundance in the victory at Chelsea. Thats the way we wantto play every time we take to the field. Early results have already proved that this is a very competitive league with most teams capable of taking points off each other. Thats why winning our home matches is crucial. Tonight is another one of those against a Lincoln side who we know will provide difficult opposition. Last month we won 1-0 at Sincil Bank in very windy conditions. It was a real test for us as they are very strong defensively and have a good goalkeeper in Karen Bardsley. Since then theyve twice drawn with Arsenal so that illustrates exactly what Rick Passmoors team are capable of. Well have to perform at our best to get a victory that would put pressure on the sides around us.
Thank you for your support,Matt.

NATASHA DOWIES goal gave Liverpool a deserved win over Doncaster to put the Reds top of their Continental Cup group. Liverpool started brightly with the tricky Nicole Rolser weaving her way into the area on seven minutes before drawing a good save from Nicola Hobbs at her near post. Doncasters vocal travelling support must have been worried as their side continued to absorb pressure. Hobbs was by far the busier of the two goalkeepers and she acrobatically tipped a fine shot from Amanda Da Costa onto the crossbar. But Hobbs was helpless three minutes before the interval as Dowies lobbed effort drifted over her head but finished on top of the net.Despite their best efforts however, Liverpool could not breach the visitors backline and the first half ended goalless. Yet within seconds of the restart they could have easily found themselves behind. Only a fine challenge from Becky Easton thwarted Millie Bright on the edge of the box. That scare brought an instant response and the Reds broke the deadlock with Dowie calmly slotting the ball beyond Hobbs for her fourth goal of the season.
Doncaster responded and claimed a penalty when Bright tangled with goalkeeper Sarah Quantrill. But it was Liverpool who always looked the most likely to add a second goal. Icelandic international Katrin Omarsdottir came closest to finding it with a powerful drive. In the end though, Dowies strike proved enough. Liverpool manager Matt Beard said afterwards: Donny are an organised team who work hard and cause problems. We had to defend well. To get a clean sheet and a win is satisfying. With the chances we created another goal or two would have been a fair reflection. Thankfully the goal eventually arrived - if you give Natasha chances she will score.
Liverpool: Quantrill; Easton (Bronze 68), Bonner (c), Engen, Schroder (Riccio 80); Rolser, Omarsdottir, Williams, Da Costa (Fenlon-Billson 68), Fors; Dowie..

A WARM welcome to Halton Stadium for tonights game against Lincoln Ladies. We started our FA Womens Super league season at Lincoln last month and were pushed hard before coming away with a 1-0 win.Ive known their manager Rick Passmoor from a really young age and know that he likes to prepare his teams well. Lincoln have had a few good results already this season, including a draw with Arsenal. Theyll be organised and hard to break down so we will have to be at our best if we are to take the three points we want. Both teams have reached the semi-finals of the Continental Cup following positive results the weekend before last and we will host Lincoln here again in the last four during the first week of August.
We sealed our qualification with an excellent 4-0 win at Chelsea which was particularly pleasing after we had lost 2-1 to them in the league a week earlier. In that first game, we were all disappointed with our performance. We started well but werent able to maintain it, so it was good to get the chance to put things right so soon and we came out and put on a good display to to take us into the semis. We believe that things are starting to come together nicely and theres no hiding the fact that weve had a few good results, but we are also well aware that we still have a lot to improve on. We will keep working and training hard and hopefully we can continue to develop. Even though we won 4-0 at Chelsea, we created a lot of chances and know that one area we need to improve is being more clinical when we get into goalscoring positions.
Natasha Dowies two goals took her total to seven. She said herself that the majority of them have been with her head which was a nice change for her! Ive told Tash that she now has to start scoring a few more with her feet! Tonight starts a run of three games in 10 days before the mid-season break. With so many games in a short space of time, you have to use your squad. We have a great squad and know that any player can do a job on the team. Two of our players, Caroline Charlton and Katie Brussell, are set to join clubs in America a
