Harris delighted with seven goal victory over Bristol City!

"We're absolutely delighted with the result, to score seven goals away from home is an incredible achievement," said Harris. "It was an entertaining game for the fans that came along. 

"We had periods of the game where I felt we were really good and where we looked exactly like we would want it to look. There was a few periods in the game where we just got a little bit scruffy and it became a little bit loose. We'll review that and improve on it."

Victory was secured thanks to seven goals from six different scorers, and Harris was keen to highlight the level of depth and quality his squad has to find the back of the net.

Elisabeth Terland and Madison Haley were two of six Albion goalscorers in Bristol.

"You hope that those goals will give those players confidence." said the interim head coach. "It's been widely reported that Teri [Elisabeth Terland] has scored the bulk of our goals. We've changed that today, which is really positive - it was a real real team effort.

"I've always believed in this group of players and in this group of staff. I've also always said we should be looking up the table and not down - I think we proved that today with our performance."

Albion will host Manchester United at Broadfield Stadium for the second time this season on Saturday as attention turns to the Adobe Women's FA Cup quarter-final clash against the Red Devils.

Harris said, "We have a really positive week building into a quarterfinal against the United, we'll go into that game full of confidence. Hopefully we'll have a big crowd to cheer us on and see if we can make it to the semi finals."
