Hall pleased with Whyteleafe victory

As QPR FC Women continued their fine form on Sunday, goalscorer Melanie Hall was pleased with how her R’s side overcame some difficult situations to seal an important victory.

This weekend saw QPR FC Women clinch their sixth consecutive win of the season and it was the team ethic that pleased attacker Hall the most.

Speaking to www.qpr.co.uk, Hall said: "The game was a really hard battle but one the team worked so hard in to walk away with a victory. We made a few mistakes, which happens in football, but we knew coming into it games against Whyteleafe are always a physical battle. That just makes victory even sweeter.

“Even when they pulled a goal back and put us under some pressure, we had the belief in ourselves that we would go on and seal the game, which we ultimately did.”

Commenting on her wonder-strike, Hall knew it was only a matter of time before one of her long-range efforts flew in. She said: “I had an opportunity just before and I was a bit upset that it hit the bar and didn't go in, so I thought I would try my luck again but with my other foot and it came off.

"I haven’t scored in a while, so I am happy to finally get on the scoresheet. I have scored regularly here at Whyteleafe in recent seasons, I think it’s the big pitch, it encourages shots from outside the box, so I thought 'why not?' and thankfully it went in.”

The R’s face Whyteleafe again this weekend but this time at Harlington and Hall knows it’s going to be another tough test and one her side are going to relish.

She said: “It’s going to be another battle but hopefully we can continue our fine form in the league and claim another win.”

We had the belief in ourselves that we would go on and seal the game.
