Canterbury Ladies player coach Jen Wilson not fixated on potential for sealing Investec Premier Division play-off place

Jen Wilson says she is not concerned about the mathematical ramifications of the Investec National Premier Division play-off race, despite her side inching closer to sealing their place in the Championship decider.

Canterbury remained third and on course for a top-four spot after a 2-0 win over the University of Birmingham on Saturday, with Susannah Townsend (pictured) scoring for the third time in two games.

The city club head for Manchester to play struggling Bowdon on Saturday (1.45pm) knowing that victory, coupled with results elsewhere, could seal their top-four place. However, player-coach Wilson insisted: “I am not even remotely interested.”

She added: “I am sure the moment it happens there will be an official announcement from the governing body but I have not even looked at the table. We are just taking it one game at a time.

“Going up to Bowdon is never an easy challenge, the game is a little later than usual on the Saturday but we are travelling up on the Friday night because we want to be properly prepared.”

Second-placed Clifton's winner against Leicester seven minutes from time to remain six points clear of Canterbury, having played a game more.

Surbiton are top on goal-difference after a 3-1 win at Buckingham, while Holcombe are 10 points back in fourth, ahead of Reading on goal-difference with five games remaining, with the University of Birmingham a further point back in sixth and seventh-placed Leicester another point behind.

Wilson added: “I have no interest in any of the other teams, we will just continue to focus on ourselves.”
