Cape Town - The Proteas women will be taking it one game at a time as they prepare to take on the hosts, England, in their fourth Women's World Cup game on Wednesday.

The Proteas head into the match with confidence after a 10-wicket thrashing against West Indies on Sunday and they currently sit third on the World Cup log.

However, head coach Hilton Moreeng said his side are not taking anything for granted and will look at every game from here on out as a final.

"For us we're taking one game at a time and I think the players deserve a round of applause for their performance they put in (against the West Indies)," said Moreeng.

"We realise we are playing against one of the favourite teams and a team that is earmarked to win the World Cup.

"(England) are a team that have always been giving us a run for our money, but at the moment the squad is in a good mental state.

"Every game we play, we approach it as a final. There are no easy games in a World Cup. We need to be sure we pitch up for games and our players play.

"The two sides know each other well, so the on day it's going to go down as to who does the basics well and who can do it for longer so we feel that we got a very fit squad.

"We know what we are good at and we know what we have to do. Our focus has been since we landed here to always worry about our skills and focus on what we do best."

The Proteas take on England at Bristol on Wednesday (11:30 SA time).
