FOLLOWING QPR FC Women’s narrow victory against Dulwich Hamlet Women on Sunday, star performer Jo Blodgett was quick to highlight the importance of the win for her R’s side as attention now switches to this weekend’s West London derby with Fulham.
Sunday saw Rangers continue their undefeated start to the campaign and despite Annie Dzyadyk’s first-half goal sealing all three points it was Blodgett’s performance in midfield which stood out.
Speaking to www.qpr.co.uk, Blodgett said: “It was a good win. Dulwich are really physical and they didn’t give us much space and shut us down as quickly as they could. They are direct, quick, fit and were a big challenge for us. Obviously, the game was really tight; one mistake at the back and the game could’ve been completely different. I thought we did really well at the end. We were putting our bodies on the line and running for everything to see the result through.
Commenting on the match-winning moment, the midfielder talked through what happened: “The goal came from Vicky Grieve at the back who played it into me in the middle and I saw an opening between the defenders. Annie made a great run and produced a great finish allowing her to build on her hat-trick from last week. It was a good team goal, which summed up our whole performance on Sunday.”
