Reds will keep burrowing away

Cliftonville Ladies took confidence from grinding out a victory against Crusaders Strikers last week, but Kelsie Burrows believes the players will put themselves under pressure to perform better against Derry City Women this evening.

The Reds can extend their advantage at the top of the Danske Bank Women’s Premiership to five points with a win at the Brandywell  and having lived dangerously in the North Belfast Derby – where Abbie Magee struck a decisive late goal after Rachael Norney’s penalty save – Burrows insists nothing will be taken for granted.

“The game against the Crues wasn’t easy but it was a hard fought win and we will take the confidence into this game against Derry to play better as a team to hopefully win three points again,” she explains.

“We expect a lot from ourselves and each other as a team. The Manager expects a lot from us to perform in every game, so we take it in our stride. All of the pressure comes from within our own camp. Hopefully this helps push us towards hunting for success this season.”

With a perfect record in the Premiership so far, Burrows – who was part of the Cliftonville contingent that performed for Northern Ireland Women at Euro 2022 last month – says the Reds are determined to keep building as the campaign gathers pace.

“The more we train and play together, a momentum is automatically going to build which will benefit the team to continue to play well and win games,” she adds.
