ATKINSON: "We Want To Finish On A High"

Wildcats winger Jordan Atkinson said her side want to finish on a high as they prepare to face Aston Villa Ladies.

The trip to Tamworth is Durham's final game of the FA WSL Spring Series, and Atkinson said the chance to build momentum before pre-season is one her teammates want to take.

Jordan Atkinson on wanting to finish the Spring Series strongly:

“We definitely want to finish on a high.

“We’ve had a good Spring Series. I think the team has played well and we’ve shown what we can do.

“We’ll be looking to take that into the Aston Villa game as well.”

Jordan Atkinson on Aston Villa:

“They’re a team we’re very familiar with so they’ll know a bit about us so we have to take that into account.

“But if we play our own game I think we’ll be absolutely fine.”

Jordan Atkinson on the chance to finish in the top two:

“It would be an absolutely massive achievement.

“We’ve just got to keep playing. You never know what’s going to happen in the other games around us.

“We just have to be prepared to take our chances.”

Jordan Atkinson on the importance carrying momentum into 2017/18:

“It’s massively important.

“It would be good to go out with a bit of confidence and on a high to take us into pre-season.”
