Dani Bird admitted that Bristol Academy are getting frustrated after they drew 1-1 with Sunderland in the National Division on Sunday.
The Bristol side have drawn five of their seven games but Dani is confident that their fortunes will improve very soon. "It's another draw, we haven't pulled out a win yet and that is frustrating," Dani told Women's Soccer Scene. "I think as a team we'll pull together and things will pan out alright in the end. Sunderland worked hard today and we found it hard to break them down but it will come, it's just taking a bit longer than we expected.
"All we need is one goal - we have to keep coming back in games. We just need a bit of finishing edge and hopefully we'll be climbing the table in the next few weeks."
Academy's next opportunity to record their first win is on Thursday night when they take on Birmingham City. "We drew 1-1 with Birmingham last time and it's going to be another hard game, because they have still got a lot of good players and no-one can underestimate them. They still have Heather Scheuber, Karen Carney, Laura Bassett and Ellen Maggs so they've got the core of a team there."
Things were a little different 24 hours earlier as Dani scored two early goals in England under-19's 3-0 win over Scotland. "It was one of my highlights," she smiled, "I didn't expect to be 2-0 up in a few minutes and scoring them both. I was dead chuffed really! It was a good team performance and we could maybe have won by even more goals."
The double haul took Dani's goals tally for England under-19 into double figures. "I'm having a bit of a good time with the under-19s at the moment," she admits. "When you're enjoying your football, you'll get amongst the goals - I'm enjoying it as they are a good bunch of girls, and we're a good team."
Dani adds that England can go all the way to the Finals once again. "This time last year, we were in the same situation where we won our group and went on to the Finals. This year, we've got an even better chance as our team just gets stronger every year. I think we've got a wicked chance of getting to Switzerland.
"Nicole Emmanuel, Katie Holtham and Amy Kane were the only three to leave us this year due to being over-age so the core of the squad is still there and some good youngsters are coming in. We can take the experiences from Hungary into Switzerland this summer, if we get through the next stage."
