West Ham’s Women’s team defender Shelina Zadorsky is confident that her side will do enough to stay up this season.

For a while now, the performances from the West Ham women’s team have been extremely positive. They’ve been playing much better than they did at the start of the season but, unfortunately, they just keep failing to take their chances.

In their goalless draw with Brighton, the Hammers had a number of chances to get themselves ahead but just couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net. However, Shelina Zadorsky believed that they are moving in the right direction. “I’m really proud of the performance,” she told the official site. “It was back and forth, but we stayed focused, defended well and created chances too.”

“I’m happy with how we all fought to keep the clean sheet, because that solid defensive base is where you need to start. I’m proud of how we pressed and communicated, and I think we showed a good level of self-confidence in the game.

“We want to put our opportunities away of course, and we need more goals from all areas of the pitch. But we have players who can do that, we just need to stay focused and I’m sure the goals will arrive.”

The Irons now sit 7 points above bottom-of-the-league Bristol City having played 1 more. While they are far from retaining their position in the top flight, “getting a point and a clean sheet before the international break is massive, and we have to take it,” the 31-year-old said.

“We’ll go off now and do our best for our countries, and then come back and fight to win as many points as we can in the games we’ve got left. We’ll go into every match as if it’s a cup final, and if we keep going as we are I’m confident we can keep picking up points.”
