QPR FC Women manager Steve Quashie was once again pleased with his side, as victory over Whyteleafe on Sunday saw them move to the top of the London and South East Regional table.
Goals from Chloe Sampson, Milly Cutler and Carla Perez ensured the R’s came away with another 4-2 victory over Whyteleafe and sealed their seventh consecutive league win.
“I am delighted we got the three points,” the Rangers boss told www.qpr.co.uk “Games against Whteleafe are always difficult because of their physical presence and tactical game play but we got over the line.
"For us, we just had to go back to basics and take control of the game. The first 30 minutes, we were a bit on edge but once we settled down and Chloe took her chance we really improved our game play and never looked back.
“We had a period at the end of the first half that somewhat killed the game off and the players showed intelligence with the ball and made it do all the work. They got in behind the Whyteleafe defenders and converted the chances which came their way.”
Following the result, the R’s moved to the top of the league table and Quashie knows it’s thoroughly deserved.
He said: "The players have worked incredibly hard and the performances we have produced this season warrant our first-place position. From the back to the front, our football has been fluid, solid, slick and dynamic with our game plan. I am really pleased.
“I think we have settled into our groove. We now need to up our tempo and energy to stay in this position as long as we can. Hopefully at the end of the season that will result in us being crowned champions but we have a long way to go until we can start thinking about that."
Looking ahead to next week, Rangers face Dulwich Hamlet at Champion Hill in a top-of-the-table clash and Quashie knows it’s going to be Rangers' toughest test yet.
He said: “That is another mouth-watering game that we need to prepare for. We have shown in recent games that we can beat Dulwich but we need to put the crowd to the side of our thinking and stay focused and determined to get our result.
"We have played Dulwich twice already this season. We beat them at home 2-1 and away 1-0 in the League Cup and should give us confidence. Added to that, we are going into the game on the back of an incredible run, so we are looking forward to it.”
