Yeovil Town striker Jemma Tewkesbury is confident that her side's tough start to the season will stand them in good stead.
The newly promoted side had to wait a week before making their Premier League bow in the League Cup against Reading and have since played two local derbies, both against Keynsham Town.
"It has been a tough start but it's been a good experience being put in at the deep end," she told Women's Soccer Scene. "We know there are easier games to come so hopefully we can get points from them.
"We can battle and maybe even challenge, but this year we've just got to settle into (the league) and next year push on and go for the title."
Jemma smashed the South West Combination scoring record last season with 52 goals, despite playing most of the time on the wing, and she is off and running this time around having netted in both games against Keynsham. "I haven't been scoring much in pre-season," she said, "but it's nice to get underway. Confidence builds from that and the goals will keep coming hopefully."
Midfielder Rachel Edwards echoed Jemma's comments and believes that the future is very bright for the Somerset club. "Reading was a difficult game," she admitted. "I thought as a team we performed extremely well and got into our stride but unfortunately they hit us with two early goals which knocked the wind out of our sails a little bit. Hopefully when we get going, we can start quicker and stop those goals going in.
"Experience is going to play a part in it as we are quite a young side. It's going to take us a little time to settle down but we've got some really good players in the squad who are gifted.
"We've got the talent to do it and I think we'll give teams a good run for their money and we will stay up this year. It's not about the top four, it's about settling ourselves down and going for it next year."
