We had to be patient - Andi

We had to be patient - Andi - 19 Feb 2010 - Women's Football NewsAndi Bell admitted that Nottingham Forest were made to work hard for their 1-0 F.A.Women's Cup Fifth Round victory against Yeovil Town.
The striker settled the tie with an angled second half shot and she told Women's Soccer Scene afterwards: "I don't think we were at our best today. Yeovil closed us down and had a good crowd behind them - they played pretty well.
"We weren't clinical enough but got a win and after a long journey, that was what we needed."
Yeovil goalkeeper Rachel Simkin had a fine match and Andi joined many others in recognising her performance. "Their goalkeeper played really well and made three great saves," she said. "If we had got an early goal, then it could have been a different story."
As for her goal, Andi insisted that her strike was fully intentional. "It was actually a shot," she replied. "I didn't think there was anyone else in the box so I had a go at goal - everyone else will say it was a cross but I'll stick to my story. It was a relief to see it go in as we had to be patient in this game."
"I don't think we played as well as we usually do," added Forest midfielder Lauren Cresswell, "but at least we've come out with a win. It was a slow start to the game as we have hardly played in two months but we did well to get through."
Lauren is starting to produce her best form on the left and is forming a good understanding with full back Ellie Gilliatt. "I enjoy it on the left, linking up with Ellie and we work well together," she said. "I have pushed forward into midfield from left back and prefer it there it's my favourite position right now."
Now Forest will set their sights on a quarter final trip to Barnet this week and bid to reach the last four for the first time in their history. "It should be a similar sort of game but more difficult as they are in a higher league," said Andi. "It's another long journey and another away game so we have to make sure we're prepared and ready again. Hopefully coming away from this game with a win will put us in good stead for next week."
"It's going to be a battle against Barnet, but every away game is like that - you expect the other team to step up their game if they play at a level below you," added Lauren.
With the Final - at the City Ground, home of Nottingham Forest - just two matches away, could Forest's players be forgiven for thinking about getting there? "You can have a little dream," replies Andi. "The semis are a good occasion though - I've played in one before and you're one step away from the Final, but we've got to get there first."
"No, not at all - you've got to take each game as it comes as you never know what might happen," said Lauren. "If we work hard and put the effort in, then you never know what the result might be."
