Marc Skinner shares his thoughts after Wednesday's comfortable 4-0 victory over Oxford United Women.

Skinner on Oxford United Women:

“I think the victory was made more comfortable by the red card but Oxford are a good team. I was watching them in the build up and we did our homework like we do for any other team. It’s a comfortable win in the end but I still think Oxford are a very good team and Andy Cook is doing a very good job.”

Skinner on the second half sending off:

“The game was killed when we got our second goal and when their player got send off. If I’m being really honest our goalkeeper hasn’t had much to do all night, just a little bit of kicking so I think we did what we wanted to do. It’s not as comfortable as I wanted it to be but overall I’m happy. It looks as though I’ve made the right changes but it’s about being in the right place at the right time. I think we were knocking on the door long enough.”

Skinner on the performance of Rachel Williams:

“We always planned for Rachel Williams to do 60 minutes tonight. She’s still a little bit rusty but she’s getting closer to being the player that everyone wants to see. We’re all working with her and once she’s fit and healthy everyone will see the real Rachel Williams and that’s what I’m excited for. She did okay tonight and I’m happy with her performance overall.”

Skinner on the FA Continental Tyres Cup:

“This competition is exactly the same as every other competition. We want to win every game. I’ve used it tonight to rotate and see a couple of my younger players and see what they’ve got. It always depends on the tactics I select. I’m aiming to collect a ‘toolset’ of players that can adapt and react to different situations and that’s what we’ve got.”
