Everyone’s attitude is 'spot on' says Chloe Craig

AHEAD of hosting Glasgow City in the quarter final of the Scottish Cup this Sunday, Chloe Craig applauded her teammates’ attitudes, and told how the quality throughout the squad ensures the best out of everyone.

Fresh from a confidence-boosting 7-0 win over Forfar Farmington last Sunday stretching their run to three wins in a row, Craig opened up on how all eyes are now on Sunday with everyone keen to keep that run going.

“Training’s been good, we’ve just been focusing on Sunday. It’s a big game and we know we have to win to get through to the next round, but everyone has put the effort in and everyone’s attitude has been spot on,” she told.

The defender scored from the spot, her second of the season, against Forfar to give the Hoops a 2-0 advantage going into the break. But while she was delighted to be back on the scoresheet, she was more pleased with the application from the team for the entire match.

“I love getting on the scoresheet but it’s always great to play a part and helping the team to get three points.

“Whether it’s one, two or three, we just keep going and try to get as many as we can and push ourselves. We’ll only get better by pushing ourselves individually and collectively so for the 90 minutes we go full throttle,” she explained.

Celtic racked up a third clean sheet in a row on Sunday and have only conceded two goals in six games since the return of action after the summer hiatus. The 26-year-old puts that firmly down to ability, belief and cohesion amongst the pool of defenders at the club, saying no matter who is drafted in, they remain a tight unit.

“Having a clean sheet is just as important and shows how solid our backline is and how much trust we can put into each other. Right now, our back four are solid and we have a good connection and know each other well, so there’s a good bond there that we can hopefully keep going.

“The changes we might make shows how good our players are and how much we believe in each other - it doesn’t matter who plays, we have that same support and belief. You’re always challenging because you’re not guaranteed a position, but its good that people can just slot in and do the job,” she said.
