Kayleigh Green has hit the goal trail for club and country.

And her Albion manager could not be more happy for her.

Green netted twice for Wales against Kazakhstan during the recent international window.

That followed her exceptional finish in the 5-0 win over Birmingham City which sent the Seagulls top of the FA WSL table after two rounds.

They return to Crawley tomorrow to face the Blues’ cross-city rivals Aston Villa, who are also unbeaten (2pm).

Green has been a hard-working, ultra-competitive member of the Albion set-up for three years now.

But those efforts have not often been reflected in the goal-scoring column.

That has changed over the last fortnight.

Albion boss Hope Powell told The Argus: “I’m really pleased for her.

“I think she said post-match against Birmingham that quite often she has tried that long-range shot in training last season and it didn’t come off.

“It was a peach of a goal and I am really pleased for her.

“Then she takes it on to the international stage and scores two very good goals.

“She is doing really well for us at the moment.

“She is high on confidence.

“Against Birmingham in particular, she played well.

“She does the dirty work that you don’t often see those forward players doing.

“She will track back, she will dig deep.

“She is a versatile player. She can play as a No.9, she can play wide.

“I’ve played her at right-back and would have no hesitation doing that again.

“She just seems to be enjoying it at the moment.

“Maybe that is showing in terms of her goalscoring.

“She is a bit more relaxed.

“She works very hard and she has got the rewards for that.”

Green’s precise chip from an equally pinpoint Emily Simpkins pass is an early contender for goal of the season.

Last year’s winner Lee Guem-min has also made a good start to the season but her participation against Villa is in doubt.

She has been in Tashkent on international duty for South Korea and only returned yesterday.

Powell said: “The time difference is about four hours.

“Generally you need a day for every hour of time difference so she is going to be very tired. We will look at her when she returns.

“Really she should rest but she wants to come in and be around the girls and we will see how she is doing and then make a decision.”

Lee scored twice in the 12-0 win over Mongolia and also started the 4-0 win over Uzbekistan on Thursday, both in the Asian Cup
