Lizzie optimistic over injury-hit Wimbledon

Lizzie optimistic over injury-hit Wimbledon - 12 Nov 2005 - Women's Football NewsAFC Wimbledon have had a mixed season to date in the Southern Division and currently sit in a mid-table position after an inconsistent start to the campaign. 
Lizzie Laws, who is one of the Dons' brightest prospects, admits that her team have not hit their best form as yet but is confident that there is a lot to come yet. "We've had a bit of a dodgy start, a few ups and downs, but we have had a few players missing for various reasons," Lizzie told Women's Soccer Scene. "We've not had our full squad out yet this season. When they are all back, there is no reason why we cannot be higher in the table, it's just a case of getting the same squad together."
The summer has been one of rebuilding for Wimbledon with new management, losing key players to a higher level and new faces in the team. "Our captain Maria Bertelli was a major loss for us," Lizzie admits. "She was the player that held the team together but we are now getting ourselves together. Claire Gooch arrived from Enfield Town and she has slotted in well into the back four, and now alongside Rachael Axon who has returned from Bristol Academy, and that is a great boost for the team."
Lizzie herself has been contributing with goals from midfield. "Last season I played at right wing back but now I am either on the right or centre midfield and I can get a bit more involved," she says. "I have scored a few but I still feel I haven't played the best I can."
Lizzie is a member of the Arsenal academy and she feels that it is of great benefit to her. "It's really good," she smiles, "I get to train every day which helps my fitness, and the coaching is quite good. Kelly Smith is currently coaching us, her knowledge of the good is very good and she has great experience from playing in America and at the top level here, and that is a great help to me."
Wimbledon's next opponents this Sunday will be Bristol City and Lizzie admits that, like a lot of games in this division, it is a difficult one to predict. "The league has been so open this year and there have been some strange results," she says. "A lot goes down to how you play on the day. Hopefully we can do the best we can and see what happens.
"We would like to finish as high as we can this year. The fact that second place takes you in the play-offs gives us something to aim for, and we shall try to have a good run in the Cup. We are also out to try and retain the Surrey County Cup which we won last year, against Chelsea in the Final.
"If we can keep our players and our team spirit, which is really good at Wimbledon, and keep working as a team, then we can challenge for a place in the Premiership next season which is our long term aim."
