We'll give it our best shot - Stacey

We'll give it our best shot - Stacey - 6 Jan 2006 - Women's Football NewsBarnet produced the shock of the Third Round in the F.A.Women's Cup when beating West Ham Utd and the Bees are aiming for another Premier League scalp when they take on Manchester City this Sunday.
Stacey Sowden has provided Barnet's main cutting edge this season but the young striker is playing down her side's chances of claiming a Fifth Round place. "We're the underdogs," Stacey admitted to Women's Soccer Scene. "But we are in good form and the game will be a good game and experience for the team. We'll give it our best shot and everyone will give all they can on the day."
Stacey confesses to not knowing too much about Manchester City. "They're in mid-table in the Northern Division and doing well, so they aren't a bad side," she says. "They will have our full respect. I would like to think we could progress, but we'll just have to try as hard as we can.
"When we beat West Ham, it was a great team effort - no one player was outstanding and everyone played well."
Stacey, who has forged a fine strike partnership with Beth Curtis at Barnet, admits that Sunday's game will see a different challenge from South East Combination matches. "Every game we play we are defending top spot and teams are out to beat us, so it will be a nice break from the league," she says. "The girls are a great bunch and we have some very talented players. Hopefully we can make the Premier League next season as that is what we are aiming for.
"Our defence has been fantastic this season, Charlotte Herson and Katie Wickham have been excellent. Our full back Davina Smith is a great crosser of the ball, as is Hayley Johnson, and the arrival of Leanne Small has brought her talent and experience to the team. Overall I think we have a team capable of playing at the level above.
"I think there are four teams still with a chance of winning the league - ourselves, Northampton, Colchester and Ipswich. All are good sides but at the moment Northampton are the closest to us, we have to go there to play them before the end of the season so that should be a big game!"
Stacey began her career with Keynsham Town and scored 42 goals as they won the South West League title, before joining Barnet whilst attending the Arsenal Academy, a decision she has not regretted. "Being at the academy has helped my game and my fitness, and I am enjoying it," she says. "But I think I have improved as a player mainly at Barnet, thanks especially to my manager Tracey Kevins who is absolutely brilliant, her knowledge of the game and tactics are really good. We also have Gill Jones and John Taylor who work so hard off the pitch and deserve a lot of credit. The club have done a lot for me and I hope we will be smiling at the end of the season."
