Salmon eyes challenge ahead

Ebony Salmon is relishing the opportunity to test herself against the best as City Women welcome Manchester City to the SGS College Stoke Gifford Stadium this afternoon.

City Women picked up two point from two games against Manchester City last season and Salmon believes the Robins can take confidence from their comeback against Reading last weekend.

“As much as we know Man City are a top team and they’ll be tough to play against, these are the games you want to be playing in and if we stick to the game plan, like we did on Sunday, being compact and hit them on the counter attack then I think we can definitely get something from the game.

“As a striker I’m always looking to get on the scoresheet and of course I want to do that at the weekend, but if we get a strong team performance then I’ll be happy as that’s what matters most.

“We knew we had a tough run of games coming up this month and Reading was the start of that run, so going in to that game and getting something out it gives us the positivity we need going into to Man City.

Salmon’s eighty-first minute equaliser earned City Women their first points against Reading in five meetings and sealed a memorable comeback at the Madejski.

“I think our game last weekend was great for the team, especially twice coming two goals down. We showed good character to get back into the game and hopefully that can give us confidence moving forward for the rest of the season.

“It was good for me to get on the scoresheet and the manner I did it in made it feel even better, but saying that I feel as though I had a couple of chances so I felt like it was coming and luckily it did and we got a point from the game.

“We spoke after the game about how even when were two goals we didn’t feel out of the game, so we knew that if we kept doing what we were doing the chances would come and we could get something out of the game.

“We’re looking forward to being back at home and playing in front of hopefully a big home crowd, which will give us more confidence going into the game.
