“We’re all buzzing after the win on Sunday,” said assistant manager Scott Davies. “It was a really good performance and we were so happy with what the girls produced on the pitch. Hopefully, that will leave us in good stead for the game on Sunday.

"We went into the Swansea game feeling confident because we put a lot of work into pre-season and we’re playing some really good football, so spirits are really high in camp at the moment.

“It’s important that we don’t take the result for granted. We’re expecting a really tough game on Sunday. Barry are going to be hard to play against, they had a really good performance against Swansea and were unlucky to lose. With Lee Kendall in charge, myself and Iain know him very well, so we know they’re going to be set up to be really hard to beat.”

Defender Megan Bowen, who has shown huge potential since joining from Barry Town United this summer, added: “We’re all really looking forward to it and feeling confident. We’ve had three wins and three clean sheets now back-to-back, so we’re ready for another challenge.

“We knew Swansea were going to be a challenge for us on the weekend and Barry will be another challenge for us, but we’re confident that we can come away with the three points.

"It’s a massive credit to them as a club and as a team the way they’ve started the season, but we know what we can do as a team and the threats we can bring, so we’re all ready to go.”
