The Football League Paper - - WOMEN'S FOOTBALL WEEKLY -

NOT­TING­HAM For­est cap­tain Kelly Ken­naugh is keen to en­sure that her side don’t re­peat last year’s slug­gish start to the Women’s Premier League North­ern Di­vi­sion sea­son when they face Pre­ston North End to­day.

For­est took nine games to record their first league win of the 2014-15 cam­paign – break­ing their duck against Pre­ston in Oc­to­ber.

But the skip­per be­lieves they are in bet­ter shape as a unit this time around.

“We have a more set­tled squad go­ing into Sun­day but with some great new ad­di­tions too,” said Ken­naugh.

“It was clear that we were stronger at the end of the sea­son than at the be­gin­ning.

“Pre­ston have al­ways been a phys­i­cal side and we know we have to adapt quickly, but the will and abil­ity is there and we all have to work hard, along with the coaches to en­sure we bring out the best in each other not just in this game – but in ev­ery game.”

OP­TI­MISTIC: Kelly Ken­naugh
