Attacker Robyn Smith praised her teammates’ efforts in their opening three games and hopes Forfar Farmington can continue their unbeaten run as they return to league action this weekend.
The side top the Scottish Women’s Premier League’s second tier in a polar opposite following last year’s relegation with wins against East Fife, Jeanfield Swifts and Motherwell.
23 year old Smith believes that the side have started the season in fantastic fashion with the squad gelling almost perfectly however she confessed that they still have areas to finesse.
She said: “The team’s performance has been great so far, we came into pre season knowing it wouldn’t be easy in this league. We have put in a lot of effort over pre season and changed things up which is already paying off. We know we need to work on areas but overall I think we can be pleased with how things are going so far.”
“I think everyone’s settled in well, we are a friendly bunch really so I think it’s easy for the new ones coming in to settle quickly.”
The attacker is pleased with her contribution so far with two goals and an assist however Smith admits she has no targets to aim for as long as the team keep their good scoring run going after almost equalling their league goals tally from last season.
“I don’t have a target as such, I’ll just be happy to see the team scoring and hopefully I can contribute with a couple more.”
She continued: “I think my performances have been good, I feel the fittest I’ve ever been and think that I’ve taken a lot on board over pre-season that’s helped improve my performances. To have already scored twice has given me a boost as I don’t score many but there are still plenty of things I can improve on and I’ll continue to improve on them as the season progresses.”
The side travel to Glasgow to face Glasgow Girls who are also unbeaten in their opening three game with victories over Hutchison Vale, Buchan and Motherwell and the 23 year old believes they can walk away from what will be a tough clash with all three points.
“If we work together like we know we can it will be difficult for teams to beat us this season however we will go to Glasgow Girls this weekend knowing it won’t be easy and hopefully we will come away with all three points.”
Despite numerous international breaks and cup weekends meaning the side have only played four games since the start of the season two months ago. Smith reckons it is easy to keep momentum going after a good start to the season.
She explained: “It’s always difficult to have so many stop starts especially after such a long wait for the season to start but we have a group of girls that love the game and to be on a winning streak after last season it has really has boosted our belief so I think it’s easy for us to keep the momentum high at the moment.”
