Pride women 'need to back ability'

WESTERN Pride women's coach Belinda Kitching wants her football side to gain confidence for the rest of the NPL Queensland season.

A 4-0 loss on Sunday afternoon against Souths United at AJ Kelly Field was not the way Kitching wanted to start the season.

"They've just got to start backing themselves and once the possession is there the quality starts to shine," Kitching said.

"If we lift the aggression the football will happen and hopefully we can start getting better results in matches.''

Souths took a three-goal lead into halftime dominating possession, passing and chances on goal.

Pride was more competitive in the second half, becoming more confident with their ability on the ball. However, they struggled to contain the team that made semi-finals last season.

"I think we are at a point now  where we need a start trusting our abilities," Kitching said.

"We've done the hard work now in our six weeks of pre-season and the building process will take a long time but it's the ability within the players that needs to be a lot better.''

Kitching has added six new players to the squad. She is also developing a new defence.

Western Pride return to AJ Kelly field on Sunday to play Peninsula Power.
