The Girls played with such heart - Forest boss Lisa
31 Jan 2004
Nottingham Forest Nottingham Forest player manager Lisa Dawkins could not contain her delight after her team's dramatic penalty shoot out victory over Chelsea which has seen them reach the quarter finals of the F.A.Women's Cup for the first time in their history. Forest defeated the Premier League side after the teams had shared a 3-3 draw after extra time.
Lisa said: "This is one of the proudest moments I have had in my footballing career. The girls played with such heart and spirit and gave 120% commitment. I could not have asked for anything more than they gave and they were justly rewarded. I had the luxury of a quality substitutes bench which gave me many options and even those who did not play contributed in team spirit which could not be any better than it is at the moment. The terrace support was amazing and that is a reflection on the success of the club, it certainly helped the players and we out voiced the Chelsea supporters at least 10-1."
Forest have been rewarded with a home tie in the quarter finals against Bristol Rovers, who have gone as far as the semi finals in two of the last three seasons and marched into the Sixth Round on this occasion by crushing Reading Royals 9-1. However Lisa feels that her team should not be daunted by the task which lies ahead of them. "All the players are excited at the prospect of being in the last eight, and whilst we have been billed as minnows in the competition, we believe we will give Bristol Rovers a good challenge. We have to still focus on winning our league in order for us to compete against teams like Chelsea, Bristol Rovers and the Arsenals of this world on a regular basis. We fear nobody, but respect everybody and will continue to concentrate on our own game and look forward to representing our club in addition to the Nottingham Forest brand, our sponsors Capital One and of course the city of Nottingham in two weeks time."
Forest captain Sue Bointon added: "The players are buzzing, we had some great pre-match preparation and planning which was an investment from our Club committee and I think we paid that back with the result. We are so proud to represent Forest and our sponsors who have invested in our club so much this season and because of that, our committee have invested in some quality initiatives which contributes in team and Club spirit and that really showed through on the pitch at Chelsea. We've got a great squad, a strong management team in Lisa, Alan and Mark and it couldn't get any better right now - unless we get to the semis of course!"
