SWINDON Town Ladies manager Leonie Wade believes the tide is turning for her side as they look to claim their first win in the FA Women’s Premier League Southern Division.

Wade oversaw her inaugural win last Sunday since taking over the club in the summer, when Swindon swept Maidenhead United aside with a 7-1 victory in the FA WPL Plate. The Town boss is hoping her players will now be riding on a crest of wave ahead of their latest trip to Lewes tomorrow.

The Sussex side have been enjoying a good start the season and sit second in the table.

“I think we have taken a lot of confidence from the cup win, when it comes to game day our moods are improving,” said Wade.

“If you come and watch us train, our attitude is great, we just need to replicate that from training to game day. We need to use what we learned on Thursday and use it on Sunday, that is where we need to connect at the moment.

“Hopefully we can replicate our performance from the cup in the league.”

Wade, who is studying for her UEFA B Coaching licence, believes there has been improvements since her unveiling.

Despite being bottom of the league, with no points on the board, the Swindon chief has taken a holistic view of her time at the club and states improvements are being made on and off of the pitch.

“I’ve seen an improvement in the players, it was a big change with me coming in and I think a couple were hesitant to start with,” she added.

“Both on and off the field, the changes have been massive and it is pleasing to see, we just need to individuals who are improving so much to work together.

“It is a team who win games, rather than just an individual.”

Meanwhile, Swindon Town U18s will be gunning for revenge when they host Yeovil Town at Stanley Park this morning (11am).

The young Glovers defeated Alan McLoughlin’s 2-0 back in September - which was Town’s first loss in the new EFL Youth Alliance South West League this term.
