We've got to keep getting results - Charlotte

We've got to keep getting results - Charlotte - 14 Mar 2008 - Women's Football NewsWFC Fulham captain Charlotte Young remains confident that her team can land the Southern Division title despite their recent sticky patch.
The Whites have drawn both of their recent league matches and their lead has been trimmed to six points but two wins from their final three matches will see them return to the National Division at the first attempt. However Charlotte told Women's Soccer Scene that their opponents are making life a lot tougher for them in recent weeks.
"Teams are defending against us and it has been difficult for us to get results, but we are still grinding them out," said Charlotte. "We have just got to keep getting results and not losing.
"Sometimes you are coming up against teams who are playing defensive football against you but, if we want to win this league, we have got to get into the gaps and get some goals. It's difficult, but it's something we have to live with."
Fulham's latest result was a 1-1 draw against relegation threatened AFC Team Bath, whose goalkeeper Lauren Wells had an inspired match. "We didn't start well," admitted Charlotte. "It was windy and difficult to get the ball down. We looked to get goals but it was one of those games where the ball wasn't going to go in.
"We haven't seemed to have a sticky patch so far this season but we're probably having one now."
Fulham were not helped as leading scorer Ann Marie Heatherson was missing through injury. "Annie has been a great player for us all season and she has scored at vital moments," said Charlotte. "We've had a few other niggling injuries throughout the season.
"We need to find the strength in depth in our team to keep going - we're still in there fighting, we will get players back from injury and then we'll look to go forward."
The next league match for Fulham will be against Colchester United, who have been one of the more unpredictable sides this season. "We've just got to get the ball down and play our own game, and anything can happen," insists Charlotte. "We need to get the points so it's up to us to keep doing what we have been (so far)."
Barnet are the most realistic challengers to Fulham but Charlotte is still not ruling out Millwall Lionesses and Portsmouth from the frame. "Those three teams have been clipping at our heels all season," she said. "We have finished with them now, bar Portsmouth, so for us it is just to keep our heads above water and keep above all of them. It's important not to look back at the chasing pack because they'll keep chasing us to the end."
