Butler ready to go again

Andy Butler says he is eager to get going once again as the Belles prepare to face Solihull Moors on Sunday.

Butler will be looking to make it two wins from two in the FAWNL Division One Midlands when Solihull come to Rossington at the weekend, and he is sure the competition for places in the side at the minute will drive everyone on.

“It’s another one we’re looking forward to, again we’re just going to concentrate on ourselves and build on what we did last week, that’s all we can do is just to keep improving every week,” he said.

“We want to concentrate on the performance before we concentrate on the result, if you get the performance right then the result will follow, if the girls can apply themselves, not just in training but in the games, then they can really focus on what we ask them to do.

“We’ve brought more in over the last week and it’s up to all the girls to fight to keep their shirt, no one is guaranteed a starting position and they all have to work hard for their place, and I think that will help drive everyone on too.”

The Belles beat Solihull 1-0 when the two sides met back in September, though despite this, Butler says his side won’t be complacent and they are expecting a difficult test at the weekend from the West Midlands outfit.

“We did really well last week and we hope that continues, we know they got a result against Solihull earlier on in the season, but they could be a totally different side, much like we could be a different side too,” he added.

“We just have to focus on ourselves, it might be a mindset thing but the girls are full of confidence and we’re really looking forward to it, it’s good that they’re all turning up in their numbers and are ready to work hard for the team.

“We’ve seen a few videos on them recently, so we know a little bit of what they are about, but like I keep saying, we concentrate on no one else but ourselves, we can only influence our own players the performance will come from them.”

Tickets for Sunday's FAWNL Division One Midlands clash at home to Solihull Moors are available on the gate at Oxford Street, priced at £3 for adults and £1 for 17 and under.
