LEGG READY TO STAKE HER CLAIM

8 October 2017

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Jenna Legg is eager to consign an injury-enforced absence to the past, as she looked ahead to Sunday’s FA WSL 2 match away at Millwall Lionesses.
 
Legg spent much of the summer recovering from an ankle ligament problem, and is eager to make up for lost time.
 
She said, “There’s nothing worse than being away from the team, but challenges like that make you stronger as a person and make you realise how much you miss the game. I’ve just got to be patient now and get myself fit and get back into the squad.
 
“I’ve missed a lot of pre-season, so I’ve got to be patient now, get myself into the best-possible condition and make sure I’m ready when the opportunity comes.”
 
The 20-year-old reflected on the side’s 100 per cent start to the season with two wins from two games, but feels that record will be tested by a strong Millwall side.
 
“We’ve got off to a really good start and six points is all we could have asked for, but it’s a long season, it’s early doors and we’ve got to be focused and take each game as it comes.
 
“It will be a tough game on Sunday as Millwall have recruited really well and added quality to what was already a strong side.
 
“They’ve got off to a good start themselves and I think they will be near the top of the table come the end of the season.
 
“It will be a good challenge for us; playing away from home is never easy, but we’ll be fully prepared.”
 
The midfielder also revealed the impact which Hope Powell has had since taking charge, and feels the squad can only improve under her guidance.
 
"It’s been brilliant working with her and she has so much knowledge of the game.
 
“She’s played and managed at the highest level and worked with the best players internationally too.
 
“She knows what it takes to be the best and has high expectations of us, and I’m sure she can get the best out of us.”
