We’ve finally found our stride.

We are all on the same page and it feels great, we all feel really connected and I think we’ve finally gelled as a team.

This league is really tough because most of the international players come in for the season with a week to go before kickoff and it’s hard to find that chemistry but I feel we’ve got that now and we’ll be really strong moving forward.

We’re feeling fitter and fresher after that long break and we’re definitely psychologically stronger so that’s done us a world of good.

We put in a really good block of training over that big break and everyone did their job perfectly against Adelaide United. Credit to Elise Thorsnes who bagged a hat-trick but it was just a great all round performance.

It was a really good team performance, it was exactly what we were looking for. We were relieved to score so early on and we just kept calm and our patience was rewarded with a string of really nice team goals.

We’ve had a few injuries in the last few weeks but having the ability to take some of those girls off for a large period of the game was a nice luxury to have because it allows them a faster recovery to full health.

While we did do some things well against Adelaide there is still a lot to improve on and I think we can do that against Western Sydney.

It’s a big game for all of us but namely Michelle Heyman who will be playing her 100th game for the club.

If Michelle, Thorsnes and Ashleigh Sykes can get going as well as youngsters Amy Sayer and Ellie Carpenter I feel like we’re going to worry any team in the competition.

I know I wouldn’t want to be playing against those girls.

That said, the Wanderers are one of the teams that have conceded the least goals in the league so we’re expecting a really gritty match up against a tough team on Sunday.

We’ll approach it like we did against Adelaide, we need to get the win and we want to get the win.
