Butler: Focus on us

6 March 2020

Andy Butler says the challenge that Wolves will bring on Sunday is one that everyone is looking forward to.

Table-topping Wolves have won 13 out of 14 games in the FAWNL Division One Midlands this season, but Butler says the focus will be on making sure his side are focused on themselves first and foremost.

“It’ll be a challenge but it’s one that everyone is looking forward to, there’ll have been bigger upsets in bigger games, so we’re going to see if we can do the same this weekend,” he said.

“We obviously know that they’re a strong side for any team in this league, they’re well ahead at the top of the table, but we can only worry about ourselves first before we think about what they’re doing.

“We have to make sure that everything we do is correct, we need to make sure that the way we apply ourselves is bang on, it’ll be a tough task, we’ll respect them for that and we want to show what we can do.”

The Belles return to Oxford Street after last week’s trip to Sporting Khalsa which saw them narrowly lose out, and Butler feels the girls are ready to respond with great backing behind them on home turf.

He added: “There were some positive things in the game last week, and the players have been really good in looking to respond, we’ve had a good week in training and hopefully we can take that into the game.

“Me and Nick have sat down and watched a few of their games, they got through to their County Cup final last weekend against Birmingham, and they’ve beaten teams around them by some big scores, but every game is different.

“We have to focus on ourselves, you can never be certain which team will turn up, we just want to do things right, hopefully we get some good support behind us too, we’ve put in work to advertise the game and it’ll be a big boost for the players as well.”
