AMY McDonald says her team are confident going into tonight’s SWPL clash with Forfar but she is demanding more than their 4-1 win last time out.
Rangers beat Stirling University 10 days ago to bounce back from defeat at the hands of Glasgow City and now the Head Coach wants her side to end the first half of the season on a winning run.
The SWPL season breaks for a summer recess to accommodate the Women’s World Cup in France meaning the Gers fixtures against Forfar and then Hibernian on Sunday will be their last until August.
McDonald said: “We are really confident going into the next game against Forfar.
“I think we needed a positive result given our recent form, however we left it quite late in the Stirling game and we need to make sure that when we dominate games like that we take our chances.
“In the Stirling game we created so many opportunities and scored so early in the game, after two minutes and you are looking to go and kill off the game after that and we didn’t.
“Stirling only had one shot in the first half and they scored from it so defensively we need to be better but a credit to the players that they never gave up.
“We definitely need to finish on a positive, particularly because you want to know you can come back and compete, you want to be able to gauge yourself.
“We certainly want to be able to get a result against Forfar and we know that Hibs as well are a really good organised side.
“We need to ensure we don’t let ourselves down because when you speak to the players they say we have underperformed and we have. We need to work to improve that and Wednesday and Sunday are the perfect opportunity to do that.
Forfar are on a four game losing run and have only won one game this season, their last point came back in March.
McDonald continued: “I think Forfar will be really tough, they need points and I think they will want to prove they are better than their last few results.
“Anytime you hear their coach speak he speaks about the fact they deserved more from the game.
“It was really close for them against Celtic, it was 4-3 and they have proven they can score goals. We need to be at our best, it is a big pitch playing at Station Park.
“For a lot of our players as well it will be quite difficult because they are all going to be rushing to get away from work and get up there for a seven o’clock kick off.”
