Women’s football: Hutchie seek a cutting edge

Have your say

HUTCHISON VALE manager Andy Enwood has called on his strikers to find their scoring touch when they visit Inverness City in the Women’s Premier League tomorrow.

Hutchie still harbour ambitions of finishing top of the bottom six. However, Enwood admits they need to get more ruthless in front of goal, starting with the noon encounter at Millburn Academy against a side they have lost twice to already but sit level with on goal difference.

“The girls have been kicking themselves recently given the performances we have put in and the results we have recorded,” said the manager. “There is little I will need to say to them because getting three points tomorrow is all the motivation needed.

“I was happy with how we played against Inverness [two weeks ago] and I will be asking for the girls to do the same again – hopefully with us being more clinical in front of goal.

“We’ve been creating plenty of chances so we are doing the right things; I feel it will just take a little rub of the green to change our fortunes.

“I’m hopeful that if one goes in then it will open up the doors. We have been working hard in training on our shooting.”

Enwood believes former Spartans striker Di Barry is back to her best. He said: “Di is really looking like her old self again. She is back enjoying her football and we are getting the benefit. She brings so much to our team, not just her technical ability but also her composure on the ball and experience of playing at the highest level.

“She talks the girls through the game, telling them where to go and what to do and it’s great to see.”
