FOLLOWING QPR FC Women’s victory over west London rivals Fulham Ladies on Sunday, defender Vicky Grieve was keen to highlight the importance of momentum, which her side is building after the R’s undefeated start to the season continued.
Grieve and Jenny Moore’s second-half goals ensured Rangers came from behind to seal all three points at Harlington, but it was the defensive work which stood out.
Speaking to www.qpr.co.uk, Grieve said: “We made the game difficult for ourselves. First half, Fulham attacked really high and we struggled to adapt to it. However, as soon as we got to grips with that, we moved the ball a lot better and the second half epitomised that.
"We struggled to rectify our own mistakes until half-time and at the break we got together and realised what we needed to do to put it right. We came out and played better as a unit and it was a much better half from our point of view."
Commenting on her goal, the defender was pleased with the boost it gave her side. “It was definitely one of them of being in the right place at the right time, but I was able to take my chance when it came my way. The goal gave us a boost and the girls rallied around after that and it gave us belief that we could get back into it.”
Looking ahead to next week, the R’s attentions switch to the FA Cup where Steve Quashie’s side host Abbey Rangers.
Grieve said: “It’s always nice to be at home and have our supporters behind us, which is good. We have such a big squad, which allows us to rotate, but it will be a good test for us. We play in the league and the cup tournaments, which are all totally different games, allowing us to get a deeper understanding of each other.”
