Swindon on the spot
 Women's Football News 7 Dec 2007
Swindon on the spot - 7 Dec 2007 - Women's Football NewsSwindon Town will be preparing for a dream F.A.Women's Cup tie against Doncaster Rovers Belles after overcoming Plymouth Argyle in a penalty shootout in their Third Round match.
The Wiltshire side overcame their Devon rivals after the teams had finished level at 1-1 after extra time and Swindon defender Kim Reeves told Women's Soccer Scene: "Right from the first minute, it was hard work.
"We played Plymouth the week before and didn't quite get the result we wanted. We knew it was going to be a tough game today but were ready for the challenge, particularly in the first half when we played really well - probably some of our best football of the season. We haven't stopped competing all game and we're really pleased with ourselves."
The match at Aldbourne was one of few in the region to go ahead following atrocious weather over the weekend and fellow defender Sam Quinn admitted that conditions were tough. "It was really boggy and sticky but we had to deal with it and we played well," she said. "A few of us had cramp and we were really tired but pulled together and worked well as a team.
"We had nothing to lose as we lost to Plymouth last week, did what we had to do and got the result we wanted."
Swindon were helped by an excellent performance from goalkeeper Robyn Levett who made a number of fine saves and whose handling in difficult conditions was faultless. "Robyn plays like that week in week out for us to be honest, so it was something we expected," said Kim. "Once we got to penalties, we knew we had the upper hand with them because we knew as long as we scored our penalties, Robyn would save one."
However it was Sam who netted what turned out to be the winning penalty after the shootout had gone into sudden death. "I was very nervous, as I don't normally take penalties," she admitted. "But I was up to taking one and focused." When asked how she felt when the penalty found the net, she laughed: "It felt pretty good actually! I'm not used to it, but it was good."
Swindon will now play in the Fourth Round for the first time and Kim admits that it will be a big day for the club. "We've been going around fifteen years and it's the furthest we've got in the F.A.Cup," she says, "so it's a really good day for everyone who has been involved with the club since the start and especially the players, who don't really believe that they have got the chance to play one of the really big guns."
