Southampton FC Women captain Rosie Parnell has shared her perspective on the team’s current season, acknowledging that the four defeats in the Championship so far are not the desired outcome for the club.
The recent 2-0 loss to Charlton Athletic at St Mary’s placed them in fourth position, trailing behind Charlton, Sunderland, and Crystal Palace in the table.
Recognizing the need for a swift rebound, Parnell emphasized the importance of the upcoming match against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Despite the setbacks, she conveyed confidence that the season is still in its early stages and that the team’s current standing won’t define their overall performance.
Looking ahead to the clash with Crystal Palace, Parnell stressed the significance of focusing on their own game, aiming for a complete 90-minute performance, trusting themselves both in possession and out of possession.
The captain emphasized the importance of unity and highlighted the crucial nature of securing three points in the upcoming fixture against a strong promotion rival.
The anticipated match at Selhurst Park is set to witness a club record crowd for Crystal Palace, with over 2,500 tickets already sold. Crystal Palace has demonstrated an impressive offensive record, scoring 31 goals in just nine Championship matches, promising an entertaining encounter between two top-performing teams in the league.
