Dav Doone says the Belles are keen to put things right as they get set for a trip to face Leafield Athletic on Sunday.
The weekend’s game in the West Midlands is a repeat of the match from the opening day of the season, with Leafield running out 3-0 winners in the FAWNL Division One Midlands, and despite the tough test the hosts will provide, Doone believes the Belles can make amends.
“We’re desperate to put things right on Sunday, the team has changed a lot since that game back in August, however they all know what that result meant to us as a club, and we want to make sure that is put right,” he said.
“They’re always tough games and Leafield play some fantastic football, especially the way they progress through the thirds, they showed that in the last game we played that there are some difficult teams in this league.
“They showed that there are lots of different ways to play and not everyone is willing to do the same thing, it’s vital that we go out and put our own stamp on the game and make sure we’re the dominant side this time.”
The trip to Leafield is the Belles’ first game of 2020 and after getting back to work at the beginning of the month, Doone hopes that the continuation of the squad’s hard work can stand them in good stead to continue their good form of late.
“We’re really looking forward to being back in action, there’s a really positive vibe going round as we head into it, we’re on a steady little run and we’re looking to continue that, it’s good to see they’ve come back into training after Christmas and are raring to go,” he added.
“We’re looking to do well, the little bit of form we’ve hit recently just shows a small part of the rewards they’ve got for some hard work over the last few weeks, they’ve put in a lot of graft all season so far and now it’s hopefully starting to show.
“We’re not going to settle for what we’ve got so far, we really want to push up the league table now so three points in the next couple of games will be vital for us, it’s huge that we just kick on now and make sure we get a proper run together.”
