"Every single player stepped up." Hills on Birmingham victory

Karen Hills

Head Coach Karen Hills reflected on her side's impressive 3-0 victory over Birmingham City at The Valley this afternoon.

"I am obviously really pleased to play at The Valley, in front of a good crowd, and to get three points and to get a clean sheet against a very good side who have started the season well, I could not be more proud of the girls."

On Ella Rutherford's goal and impact:

"I thought it was outstanding, I thought she was outstanding today, it was a team performance out there today every single player stepped up and worked so hard for each other. I thought we got the shape right today, and that we thoroughly deserved the three points."

Angela Addison getting her first Charlton goal:

"Angela loves to score goals, you see she is an exciting player, and she is a threat in the final third, and as a defender, you do not want to play against players like that."


Karen Hills quote

Hills on Hannah Godfrey and Emma Follis:

"We were disappointed to have lost two players of that calibre in the first half in the way we did. We will know a little bit more further down the line, but the team has rallied around them. Credit to the subs who were game changers when they came on, I thought they really focused straight away picked up the baton and carried on."
