It is a great reward - Rehanne

It is a great reward - Rehanne - 15 Oct 2008 - Women's Football NewsLeicester City manager Rehanne Skinner is keeping her players' feet on the ground ahead of their forthcoming Premier League Cup quarter final tie against Arsenal.
The Foxes reached the last eight of the competition with a 3-1 win away to Millwall Lionesses on Sunday, which included two goals from Louise Fellows (pictured), and Rehanne admitted: "This cup tie wasn't one we were looking forward to if I am honest. Taking into account the journey and, after being away to Lincoln in a battle on Wednesday night and our Captain (Remi Allen) playing at the England Under-20 camp on Thursday, there was the danger that there may be a bit of fatigue in the players.
"However, I was really impressed with how they applied themselves against a side that is playing so well in the Southern Division. The Millwall forward caused us some scares in the first ten minutes whilst we got organised and we were lucky at that point not to go behind, but credit to Jade Radburn and Lauren Impey who got to grips with it and stemmed Millwall's flow really well. We had some really good performances from individuals on the day but as a team everyone worked tremendously well for each other. I wouldn't say the win was comfortable but I do think that we worked hard and deserved it.
"Obviously the players are buzzing ready to play Arsenal in the next round and it is a great reward for them after their efforts. Last year, when we met Everton in the FA Cup, it was the first time we had played a National Division side in a competitive game and I really thought we gave a good account of ourselves. The squad I have now though is far better than I have had in the past, people make constant references to youth which we are all used to but in reality they are the future, they work hard, are really keen to learn and are a talented bunch that play for the love of the game.
"The spirit in the side is superb and whilst we are excited to host a club such as Arsenal and be in the last eight of the Premier League Cup after only running for four years, we now need to concentrate on the League again which is wide open. From what we have played and been to watch there is no one team that stands out with that extra quality to go and win it - everyone has dropped points and we will certainly not underestimate anyone in the League.
"There is such a long way to go and we know that it is important to take each game as it comes and take nothing for granted. As newcomers we are enjoying playing and learning from each game and will see what happens."
