Bryson ready for midweek test

City Women defender Faye Bryson insists her side are raring to go as they travel to the North West to face Manchester City this evening.

Tonight’s game in Manchester will be the Robins' first game in over two weeks after both games against Tottenham Hotspur and Reading were postponed due to bad weather conditions.

“Playing any of the top half of the table is interesting, but we’re raring to get a win, that’s what we’re pushing for,” said Bryson.

“We’ve had two weeks off and just training now so we're raring to play a game, but we’ve just been a little unlucky with the games being called off.

“There’s always a good feeling about playing under the lights, you tend to get more fans at the midweek games so it will be good and it’s a great pitch to play on."

The 22-year-old signed from Everton in January and impressed on her debut, picking up the player of the match award in City’s 1-0 win over Durham in FA Cup Fourth Round. Since then, she's settled in well with the team and is looking to keep up her current form for the foreseeable future.

“I’ve loved it here so far; I feel like I settled in the first few days. The girls and all the staff are all very welcoming, so it’s just been a great environment to settle into. I didn’t find it hard at all, I’m enjoying it.

“When you look at the league table some people may expect the environment not to be great but it’s nothing but amazing at the minute, no-one is getting onto anyone’s back, everyone’s really getting on, the team environment is really together.

“We’ve been unlucky at the minute with the number of injuries we’ve got, but I’m grateful for any opportunity to be playing. I was raring to go and wanted to show my ability against Durham to Tanya [Oxtoby] and the girls and it paid off with getting Player of the Match, so I hope I can put those type of performances in for every game I’m selected.”

Bristol City Women are next at home on Monday, February 17th (7:30pm) when they take on Everton Women at Ashton Gate Stadium in the Fifth Round of the Women’s FA Cup.
