SKIPPER Gemma Hillier believes nothing has changed for her side after a slip-up in their title challenge, stating: “Our objective is no different”.

Hillier was on the scoresheet at Vitality Stadium as Cherries came from a goal behind on Sunday to draw 1-1 with Keynsham Town.

It now means that with seven games remaining, Cherries must win all of their remaining league fixtures to guarantee the FA Women’s National League Division One South title.

Sunday’s draw with Keynsham leaves Cherries eight points behind league leaders Exeter City, who have played twice more.

The two sides will meet on the final day of the season, in what could prove to be a title decider if both sides continue in the same vein.

Both Cherries and Exeter and unbeaten in 15 and 17 league games respectively this term, their previous meeting a 1-1 draw in February.

Cherries looked to begin their run-in with a win away at Southampton Women this evening (7.45pm), but the game has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Asked if dropping points against Keynsham impacted Cherries’ promotion push, Hillier told the Daily Echo: “Our objective before this game was to win the next eight games, and our objective now is to win the next seven.

“If we win all seven games, we still win the league.

“So our objective is no different from what it was before the game.

“It’s just a little bit more pressure now on each game to get those three points.

“But the objective doesn't change. We had a goal at the start of the season and that goal is still exactly the same.”

Asked if the prospect of having to not put another foot wrong was daunting for the players, Hillier responded:

“We have really high standards driven from the coaching staff right down to us as players.

“So I think even regardless of the result (against Keynsham), we want to win every game.

“We want to win every half.

“As much as disappointing as it is to only get a draw, the objective, as I said is still the same - to win every single game.”
