SWINDON Town Women manager Jamie Lloyd-Davies is taking the season one game at a time – although an impending cup final date is tough to ignore.

Town tackle Chesham United this coming weekend, looking to continue their recent progress.

Results might have been hard to come by in the league thus far, but in recent weeks Swindon have pushed hard against the likes of Cheltenham and high-flying Southampton Women’s in WNL Division 1 South West.

Continue in that vein and Lloyd-Davies is hopeful of returning back from Buckinghamshire with a positive result, though he is keeping any longer-term targets in-house.

“Based on our first game we felt Chesham were one of the better sides that we’ve played this season,” Lloyd-Davies said.

“We also weren’t at the races that day and lost 5-0 at home, so it’s a matter of all of our good work and progress will hopefully lead to this point and getting a result on Sunday.

“It’s about continuing to build on the performances.

“We certainly want to build on the performances and get some well-deserved results before the end of the season.”

After this weekend’s game, Swindon face an 11-day lay-off from competitive action before the season bursts back into life with two quickfire league games.

Those lead up to an enticing prospect in a Wiltshire FA Women’s Cup final showdown at the end of the month, with Royal Wootton Bassett Town their opposition at Melksham’s InfiLED Arena.

Not that Lloyd-Davies will let that become a distraction from hopefully advancing their points tally in the league.

“We’ve got the Senior Cup final on the 29th which has now been confirmed at Melksham,” said the excited manager.

“We’re obviously looking forward to that, but taking it one game at a time to make sure we get our league run back in order before we concentrate on that.

“But it’s certainly something for our spectators to look forward to, a spectacle for our players to go and compete in the final, and an opportunity to win some silverware.”
