Andy Butler says the Belles are looking forward to another test as they head to Sporting Khalsa this weekend.
The Belles travel to the West Midlands for their first away game of 2020 looking to build on back-to-back wins at home to Burton Albion and Solihull Moors, and Butler says the focus has quickly shifted to Sunday’s game.
“We’re looking forward to it, we’ve had some good tests so far in the league and I feel like we’ve seen improvements, we’re working hard as a team going forward and it’s another opportunity to show what we can do,” he said.
“That improvement will only keep coming from us, we won’t take anything from the fact we beat them back at our place, I just want us to concentrate on the here and now, the past is in the past and we move on from that.
“We have the belief in the players that they’ll keep doing what we ask of them every week, it’s another game we’re looking forward to getting down to and hopefully we can get another good result on the board.”
Butler and assistant Nick Buxton are still in their first month in their new roles at the Belles, but the manager says he is pleased with the hard work the squad have all shown since their arrival, and hopes that more fans will turn up in their numbers to support the effort the girls have put in.
“I’ve been pleased with the work the girls have put in, we keep saying it but it’s only been a short time that me and Nick have been in here, but the girls all seem to be understanding of what we’re trying to do,” he added.
“We’ll set out a plan of what we want to do on Sunday, hopefully we’ll go out and execute that properly, all I ask from the girls is that the attitude and application they’ve shown so far carries on, it’s up to us to keep striving and improving.
“We’re heading near Walsall so it would be nice to maybe see some familiar faces down there too, I enjoyed my time there and hopefully we can get some interest from them, much like when we’re at home and I hope to see more Rovers fans at Rossington as well.”
