Eilidh Currie is targeting a cup victory when Pompey Women visit Poole in the National League Plate this afternoon.

Appearing in every game so far, the defender was also involved in the title-winning campaign back in 2014/15 and is now searching for more success.

She said: “It’s always nice to go into a game knowing that you can beat the team you are playing. But we will not underestimate Poole and know we will have to be at our best to get a result.”

Pompey last met the Dorset side back in July and enjoyed an 8-0 friendly victory at the PMC Stadium.

“Pre-season seems like a long time ago,” said Currie. “Now we have to focus on playing the best we can and, in return, the result should look after itself.

“There are a lot of trophies on offer this year and we want to make sure we are in the hunt for as many as possible.

“On our day we have the quality and desire to beat any team and there is no reason why we can’t go far in the Plate this season.”

Pompey returned to winning ways last weekend, running out 3-1 winners at Stadium MK, with Rachel Panting, Daisy McLachlan and Katie James all on target.

Currie said: “The atmosphere in the squad is really positive after the performance we put in against MK Dons.

“We played some really good football and showed what we are capable of. Now we must go out there and do the same against Poole.”

You can see if Pompey can earn back-to-back wins when they travel to the Dorset County Ground this afternoon (2pm kick-off).
