A win sees the Ladies team progress to the next round of the Cup.We caught up with vice captain, Mollie Haines to get her thoughts on the game

A 4-2 win sees the team progress to the next round of the League Cup competition, who they will face Fleet Town Ladies away on the 22nd October.

We caught up with the tricky and fast winger Mollie Haines to get her thoughts on the game:

4-2 win today away in tough conditions, how does it feel?
Yeah the conditions were very tough today, slight uphill in the pitch and very boggy but you just have to learn to get on with it! As a team we are delighted to get through to the next round of another cup! We just want to progress as far as possible and take each round as it comes. Although I believe getting to the final is achievable with the squad we have got!

Crazy start of the game, with 1 goal to each team, after 1 minute. Did you expect such a rapid start?
I think as a team we have always lacked a quick start to the game so to get a goal in 14 second was pretty surprising and also very impressive! I think we got caught up in the moment and Wycombe scored seconds after us. From that point onwards we all switched on and focused on our game. However I felt we were never going to lose the game but Wycombe didn’t give up without a fight!

It seems the team are creating a number of chances throughout the game, and today scoring 4 past opposition - is it something it's being work on at training?
We always work on loads of different aspects of the game in training! Fast tempo, counter attack’s, playing from the back, set pieces and I think we just put everything we have learn/been working on into the game and it just clicked! It’s always good to have someone new on the scoresheet too!

Looking a year ago, with a slow start in terms of results and now unbeaten in 4, what does it come down to, this quick start of the blocks?
Well firstly I think it comes down to a very good pre-season put on by both the gaffers! Training twice a week focusing on fitness and ball work was key in our quick start to the season! And although we lost a few players we also gained some very talented and experienced individuals and we’ve all gelled nicely as a team!

FA Cup next week, as a group you made history for reaching the furtherest a Woodley team ever, what's the expectations against a side 2 divisions above?
I think we are all pretty proud of our achievements of getting through to the third round of the FA cup! We have fought our way through the rounds and are excited for an away day! In terms of expectations.. we don’t have any; we are just going to go out there and give it our all.. we’ve got nothing to lose!

We asked this question to all interviewed - what's your expectations for this year?
As a team we ideally would like to reach a cup final and get some silverware which I think is definitely achievable but something we will keep working towards. But expectation for this year on a personal level is to get a few more goals in the bag and of course as a winger be involved in as many goals as possible!

This Sunday we see the Ladies team travel to Sutton to play the FA Cup 3rd Round against AFC Wimbledon
