The Charlton women’s team continue their hunt for silverware on Sunday when they host Lewes in the final FA Women’s Premier League Cup group stage game at Bayliss Avenue.
The Addicks have already qualified for the second round but can go through as group winners as long as they avoid losing by more than two goals against the Southern Division side.
Skipper Kim Dixson hopes her side give themselves the easiest route through the competition and win a couple of trophies, despite that meaning they fall a few games behind in the league.
She said: “As soon as you go in to a league format you are always looking to finish top and we don’t want to ruin our little run we are on.
“We have lost one in eight so we just want to keep winning, whoever we are playing. I think we have a team that is capable of beating everyone.
“I would rather have the points on the board because the league is more important than the cups, even though I said I want to win a cup this year.
“That’s still my main aim, I think we can win the League Cup and I think we can win the London Cup.”
The clash comes on the back of an impressive away victory against Manchester City in freezing conditions, coming from a goal down to win 2-1.
After going one down in the sixth minute, goals either side either side of half time gave the Addicks the three points and left Dixson impressed with her side’s team performance.
“When we got there the pitch didn’t look great and that didn’t help for the first twenty minutes of the game because we didn’t get it out of our heads and panicked,” she added. “We sort of made it an excuse and went 1-0 down.
“After that twenty minutes I think we dominated the game. The last twenty-five minutes of the first half we were all over them and got an equaliser through good play from the two Gemmas.
“In the second half there was only one team in it. We came out all guns blazing, Gemma Bryan scored a brilliant goal and it was a brilliant team performance.
“It wasn’t just one person that got us through, all eleven players on the pitch made a contribution and after the game you could see it through how people celebrated.”
