McCarthy Targets Points Against Rangers

Megan McCarthy believes Forfar Farmington can win their first points of the season when they travel to face Rangers this weekend.

Despite goals from Tori Sousa and Nicola Davidson, the side were edged out 4-2 by champions Glasgow City on Sunday and having run City and fellow title contenders Hibernian close in recent weeks so will have every right to believe they can defeat the Glasgow side.

The 23 year old defender reckons the team can take more positives than negatives from the defeat and improve even more in training this week. “I think we can take a lot of positives from Sunday, I feel in the past couple of weeks the team have started to link up well and are really putting up a fight. Despite us not getting anything against Glasgow City we can take some pride in the battle we put up and also showing that we can attack well.”

She continued: “If you look at the stats, it shows that we made the chances that we had count and if we put the same performance in next week as we did on Sunday then I am positive about getting something this week.” 

McCarthy was pleased with her own performance and admits that she will work hard in training to improve on the few errors she made. The former Inverness City player feels she is beginning to get more settled in defence with partner Sophie Milligan.

“I’m feeling more settled in the back and starting to get more comfortable as the games go on with the players around me. I made some errors that I will improve on in training. I do recall a few tackles in the box that I made but you know you can always do better, next time we play them I think we can get a point from it.”

“We have a lot of potential and can play some nice football; the more confident the team become the more that shows.”

McCarthy is in her second spell at Farmington following a short stint at the beginning of 2013. After returning in December the defender feels time has gone by quickly but is loving life at the club.

She said: “It doesn’t feel like 5 months. I am getting to know the girls more and more as well as their style of play. The coaches’ and players’ attitude and professionalism is amazing and the girls are great banter as well. The feedback and the work rate you get from everyone goes a long way.”
