Freya Hunt described Preston North End Women’s 4-0 win against Carlisle United as ‘a good day at the office’.
Hunt was a half-time substitute in the women’s team’s first outing of the New Year, which saw Liv Askam, Abbie Jones and Rachelle Smith score in a comfortable second half display, after Askam had broken the deadlock in the opening 45 minutes.
Speaking to PNE.Com, Hunt said: “In the first half we were slow out of the blocks and we struggled to open them up and create chances. They defended with ten behind the ball and made it difficult for us.
“I think in the second half we definitely came out and moved the ball a lot quicker and opened them up and the goals followed. It was a good day at the office, it’s good to be back after Christmas with a nice win.”
Hunt has been out through injury for several months of the season and was pleased on an individual level to make her return to action.
She added: “I felt good and I was dying to come on at half-time. I was eager to impress. It’s been three months out and I’ve struggled with injury.
“It was really nice to get on the ball, move it around, and I definitely just want to kick on from here now. Hopefully I can get another run in the side again to get back to my best.”
The women’s team also won their last game before Christmas with a 2-0 triumph over Accrington Stanley Ladies, and with another victory to their name now after the break, Freya hopes the team can continue their winning run.
She continued: “We need to take what we did in the second half right from the off.
“Most teams can’t live with us moving the ball and getting the full backs involved early, working the ball wide and bringing it back to the middle. We’ve got goals in us from a lot of players.
“Getting the right people in the right positions speaks for itself with the goals in the second half, it was definitely a good day at the office.”
