Women's Soccer Scene
Birmingham's unlikely heroine!
 Women's Football FA Women's Cup News - 31 Jan 2020
Harriet Scott was an unlikely heroine for Birmingham City as she scored twice in their 3-0 win at Sheffield Utd in the Women's FA Cup Fourth Round on Sunday.
The full back found the net with two headers and she told Women's Soccer Scene of her delight with the team's performance. "I was really pleased overall," she said. "People performed well and were working well in our units which is important at this point in the season. It was a great opportunity to see our new players getting minutes on the pitch, I think Georgia and Emma both gave a great account of themselves. It also makes it very interesting in terms of more competition and selection as people are also back from injuries.
"Sheffield are a very good side and we knew it would be a tough match, so we made sure not to underestimate them. Anything can happen in the FA Cup but fortunately we performed on the day and that's what matters."
"I was delighted to score, let alone score two headers!" she smiled. "I have been hearing a lot of short jokes from friends since, as it is really ironic for me to have scored headers. To be honest I cannot take too much credit, both deliveries from Lucy Stan and Sarah were perfect, it would have been a disservice to them if i hadn't have scored!"
Harriet's double strike contained a further irony as she had been restored to her regular position at full back after appearing in various positions in recent games. "I really enjoyed it," she admitted. "I have been playing out of position recently for the team as it's what we needed and trying to adapt quickly to playing as centre half, which I found hard to do because of the quality in the league we're playing against. But I was really looking forward to being back in as a full back."
One reason for Harriet reverting to her natural position is the return of captain Kerys Harrop from injury. "She's a massive bonus to have back on the pitch," says Harriet. "Kez is really vocal and challenges everybody in training everyday, she keeps standards high so I think we had really missed that aspect of her. Becks and I have been taking on the role of centre half recently and Kez's absence meant we had to try and take on leadership roles in terms of communication too.
"Although Kez being injured probably made myself and Becks improve quicker it is really nice to see her return into the team. I think the timing is perfect too, as i said having people back increases the competition for squad places and everybody knows they need to perform well right now."
Birmingham find themselves travelling north again in the Fifth Round, as they have drawn away to Sunderland. "I am really looking forward to playing against Sunderland in the next round," she said. "They are a club with a rich history and always well respected in women's football, so not a game we're taking lightly. As with all cup games, we need to perform well and make sure we win our individual battles on the day but I'm really looking forward to the game, even if it is a fair distance away!"
In the meantime, the Blues return to league action and the challenge of keeping themselves away from a relegation and Harriet is looking to the Sheffield United result as a platform to haul themselves up the league: "Hopefully we can build on this, I think the timing to have these important games is good for us. Players are performing well and challenging each other, getting a win and scoring a few goals can only give us confidence going forward. Hopefully we build on that momentum and keep it for the next few games."
