Beth Mead is in the form of her life.
The England Under-23 striker had only scored four goals for us before September, but has netted a further 10 times in just 15 appearances this season.
Friday night’s winner against Everton took her into double figures this campaign, and Mead is hoping to carry her scintillating form into next month’s FA WSL Continental Cup final against high-flying Manchester City.
“It’s nice to be scoring goals,” she said. “We were playing with 10 players at the time, so the girls were tired but we were keeping possession well and it I think was nice to get that breakthrough with the goal.
“Obviously, it’s nice to go into the break before the SheBelieves Cup with a win,” Mead added. “We have to hope that we stay injury-free and ready to go for the final.
“Manchester City have a big game on Saturday. Anything in this league is possible and we want to keep pushing.
“There’s mistakes in every team in this league and we want to keep putting pressure on the top two and hopefully they will make more mistakes and we will get higher in the table.”
