A step forward - Jayne

A step forward - Jayne - 17 Nov 2008 - Women's Football NewsWales captain Jayne Ludlow was delighted with her side's 1-1 draw in the second of their friendly double header with Finland at Port Talbot.
"For us it's a step forward," she told Women's Soccer Scene. "We were disappointed with the early goal, it was poor defending by defence and midfield to be honest, but to get the goal back and keep it at 1-1 was a great result for us.
"We've got to start games a bit quicker and, to be fair, the second half was the same but there is a lot to build on and positives to take. We're looking at the back and not leaking goals and we can look at our attacking aspects in the future.
"We've got good youngsters in the team now who can play with the ball at their feet and we just need to do that from the first minute now, relax on the ball and play."
Jayne scored Wales' second half equaliser when heading in a free kick by Jessica Fishlock. "I was a bit surprised at their defending because I was actually unmarked," she smiled. "It was a great ball from Jess, I love playing in the same team as her as I know she is going to find me, but I was just glad to pop it in.
"The fitness of the girls is getting better and concentration levels are improving in the last ten minutes of the game. In the past, they might have scored a few goals in the last ten minutes, but we are more switched on now and it was a good all round performance."
Jessica Fishlock was also pleased with the scoreline. "It was a good result and we're all happy with it," she said.
"We had a few setpieces and we needed to make the most of them. Sometimes I hit a good ball and no-one is in there and sometimes there are plenty there and my delivery is not so good but when it comes to plan, you get a great goal and it was a good header by Jayne.
"We showed the character we needed to get back into the game this time. We've got good creative players who can get a goal and we did so and held on to it, which is brilliant.
"I really like playing alongside Jayne - it's not just the fact that she's a fantastic player but we understand each other and can rely on each other. Even just to have her back in the camp is brilliant, not just for me but for all of the girls as she just brings that confidence and self belief which we need. We're all grateful that she played today after all that travelling yesterday (from Sweden).
"Lauren Townsend is a really good girl to be brought through - it's her first start and a good game to get under her belt. The whole back four were superb today, we get the odd lapse in concentration but when they get it together, they are hard to break down. It's just good to see that we are compact and strong when defending - hopefully in the next couple of months we can work on our attacking and when we get that right, we'll be a force to be reckoned with.
"Overall, I am really pleased with the two games. We learnt things from the Wednesday game that we took into this one, now we just need to fine tune things and when we do it, it will be good.
"We're looking a different team and looking to play a different way and as a nation and a team we're really proud and happy."
