MIDFIELDER Jade Gallon is desperate for Rangers to make it back-to-back wins in SWPL1 tonight against Forfar Farmington at ‘tough’ Station Park tonight.
The Light Blues make the trip to Angus as they look to make it back-to-back victories in the league having defeated Stirling University 10 days ago, and Gallon can’t wait for kick-off.
She said: “We are looking forward to the game and we think it is really important that we get the three points.
“It is always tough going up there and they make it difficult, but in the last couple of times we have been up there, we have managed to secure the victory. Hopefully we can do that again.”
After the trip to Forfar, Gers will host Hibernian at New Tinto Park on Sunday, with the Player of the Month nominee targeting a strong end to the first half of the season.
“I think it is really important we aim to get six points from six,” she continued. “It is going to be a difficult task against Hibs, but I think it is really important we end the first half of the season strongly, and then build-on when we come back after the break.”
For many of the Rangers players, a midweek fixture, especially away from home, is a challenge given they are part-time and often have other jobs. Gallon, however, has been impressed with the way the squad has pulled together to ensure coach Amy McDonald will have a full squad to choose from tonight.
She explained: “It’s not ideal that we have had to squeeze in a few midweek games, and this is even more difficult given it’s away up to Forfar.
“But, we will manage and we know how important the game is, so we have all made great efforts to make sure we can make it and be there for the team.”
Looking back on the first half of the season, Gallon has been left a little frustrated with the way things have gone with Gers sitting fourth in the table, adding: “It has been a bit up and down and we have been a bit inconsistent. There are a few games where I feel we haven’t shown our full potential, and again, looking back to when we have played the ‘top’ teams like Glasgow City, Hibs and Celtic, we have let ourselves down against them as I don’t believe the gap is as big as what the scoreline suggests.
“But we just need to pick up points where we can in the second half of the season and make sure we push on as we don’t want to just be sitting fourth again this season – we want to push forward as a club.”
