Parsley Determined To Earn Starting Place

Laura Parsley reckons nothing would please her more than to start next week after coming off the bench to rescue a point for the league leaders on Sunday.

Parsley netted a 20 yard beauty in the fourth minute of injury time after Jeanfield Swifts had went ahead through Jade McDonald with Rhianna Tweedie sent off for the hosts.

The 21 year old attacker believes Forfar Farmington didn’t create enough opportunities at the McDiarmid Park astroturf and should have been more clinical with the chances they had.

“I don’t feel that we created enough opportunities and any chances we made we didn’t take. Perhaps we thought that the game would be a bit easier for us but there is never an easy game.”

The goal was Parsley’s fifth of the season and despite the delight of scoring, she is gutted it only gave the side a point as opposed to all three.

She said: “It always feels good to get the ball in the back of the net so I’m obviously pleased about rescuing a point. I just wish my goal got us all three points instead of just one.”

Parsley has started once in the league since May, restricted to a cup start against Raith and sub appearances and she hopes that her equalising goal can put her in the frame for a start next week.

“Nothing would please me more than to start. I believe that I work as hard as anybody at training and I’m always ready to start.”

The side travel to Glasgow Girls this weekend and Parsley feels the team need to be at their best at a tough venue against a physical side.

“I feel like there is always room for improvement. We didn’t play great against Jeanfield but we know Glasgow Girls are a hard team to play against so we’ll have to be at our best.”
