Salmon Upbeat For The Future
Ebony Salmon is confident that Aston Villa Ladies can turn results around if they continue to show the endeavour they displayed against Millwall Lionesses
Aston Villa Ladies striker Ebony Salmon is sure results will take a turn for the better if the team maintains its current work ethic.
A valiant performance from those in claret and blue wasn’t enough to stop unbeaten Millwall Lionesses taking all three points at The Lamb on Sunday, as Charlotte Devlin struck twice in the final 20 minutes.
The results leaves Villa ninth in Women’s Super League Two, but Salmon is confident an upturn in fortunes is not too far off.
Speaking after Sunday’s game, she said: “We've just got to go again, work hard in training and take this performance into the next few games.
“Although we lost 2-0, it was a great performance and we worked well as a team, so we've just got to keep working hard and hopefully we'll start getting the results.”
The 16-year-old has been in scintillating form in front of goal this season, leading the club’s scoring charts with eight goals.
And the forward, who was only prevented from adding to her tally on the weekend by a superb reaction save from the visiting keeper, was left to rue what might have been as the hosts failed to take full advantage of their chances.
“We went in a half-time 0-0 and we knew we'd have to come out and work harder, but I don't think we deserved the 2-0 loss today,” she said.
“We had a few chances in the first half and I had one, which was a great save by the goalkeeper.
“I think both teams battled well, it wasn't a one-sided game at all, even at the end of the game. They just took their chances.”
