Harley Bennett revealed she was pleased to help the Charlton Women’s team back to winning ways with a 2-0 win over Watford on Sunday.

The former Millwall Lionesses midfielder was used as a makeshift centre-back due to Becky Duggan’s absence and was impressive, being named PHSC plc’s Player of the Match.

After the game she said: “We have gone on a bit of a bad run at the minute so we knew that coming into this game we had a fairly good chance because Watford have not picked up a lot of points.

“We knew it was an opportunity for us to get back on track and I think we seized it and I’m glad we did because we needed it.

"It was nice to just get three points, keep a clean sheet and a win at home. Hopefully we can take it into the next game.”

Although a central midfielder by trade, Bennett was deployed alongside Jordan Butler in the heart of defence – a position she has played in before so had no trouble adapting.

"I played with Jordan last season so we know how to play with each other,” she added. “It is not much different from playing centre-midfield so it is not too hard to pick up.

“I’m not too sure I deserved [Player of the Match] but it is nice to get, I think I needed it because I haven’t been too happy with myself at the minute.”
