Chichester City Ladies assistant manager Aaron Smith is urging his side to enjoy the final two matches of the season after a 3-0 win against QPR sealed a top-eight finish in their first ever Premier League South campaign.
City had QPR on the back foot from the first whistle and went ahead on the hour mark when Laura Ingram headed home Lauren Cheshire’s corner.
Jess Lewry added a second with a well-struck low driven shot and Alex Collighan curled in a third on the final whistle.
Next up for seventh-place Chi is a home match with second-place C&K Basildon this Sunday (2pm) before rounding off the season against leaders Charlton on May 20.
Smith said: “We have already exceeded our targets for the season. We want to win every game and we will go into the games to win them. But if I could pass on anything to the players, they have had a long hard season, now enjoy the final two games.
“Playing teams like Charlton and C & K Basildon for us a few seasons ago was a dream. Now we are here having already beaten Basildon this year in the FA Cup, it shows what the progress we have made.”
