Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Leeta Rutherford is confident that her team can still get up amongst the higher placed teams in the Southern Division.
Talking to Women's Soccer Scene after their narrow 2-1 defeat by Keynsham Town, she admitted that the team were disappointed by the eventual result. "It was frustrating to lose to a set piece," she said. "They [Keynsham] had really quick forwards but the danger to us was coming either from set pieces or the ball over the top."
"I don't think we deserved to lose it, but well played to Keynsham," added team mate Charley Boswell. "At half time, when we had just equalised, we didn't expect to finish with nothing but that's the way it goes."
Brighton went down to second half header from Keynsham captain Louise Hutton but pushed their high flying opponents all the way to the end. "We kept going and thoroughly believed we could get something out of it," said Leeta.
The defeat was particularly frustrating after the Seagulls had inflicted a first defeat of the season on league leaders West Ham Utd seven days earlier. "We dominated that game for 87 minutes but for the last two minutes, West Ham pushed forward and bombed us and we couldn't cope with it," Leeta recalled. "5-2 would have been a fairer reflection on the way the game went, rather than 5-4."
"Without last week, we wouldn't have kept fighting till the end today," added Charley, "but I'm really proud of what we have done. If people came to watch they would be able to see the effort we are putting in.
"Results haven't really done us justice so far, we deserve more than what we have."
Leeta joined Brighton during the summer after having previously played for Portsmouth and Havant & Waterlooville and she has no regrets about the move. "The girls are great fun and have made me feel really comfortable," she enthused. "I really enjoy it here. Hopefully we can move up the table - when we have got everyone back from injury, we can get right up the table. You've got to give them time to recover but we want it now."
