Cori Daniels admitted she was, once again, surprised to have been named PHSC plc Player of the Match in the Charlton Women’s team’s 1-0 victory over Cardiff on Sunday.

The centre-back re-joined the Addicks from Watford in October and has been the stand out player in three matches – two of those coming against the Bluebirds and the other on her ‘second debut’.

But she is staying grounded and feels she is only doing her job. She said: “I didn’t do anything really, I just did what I had to do... same old.

“I was surprised to even be starting really because I had a bit of a holiday but I am happy [with the award] and happy with the result as usual, glad that we didn’t concede.

“I don’t know if I have made a difference, I have just come in and done what I have to do. I don’t know, I do what I have to do and if Paul picks me, he picks me.”

The victory, thanks to an excellent Fliss Gibbons goal, cements Charlton in third place in the league table and Cori, who predicted a top three finish when she joined, believes the girls are capable of hanging on to that position.

“If results go our way and we carry on winning then we can definitely finish in the top three. Starting the New Year with a win is always good. It was well deserved... well needed as well,” she added.

“They only had two chances and Megen [Lynch] made two great saves. We had enough chances to finish the game off in the first half but I thought the team didn’t stop and we did well.”
