Andy Butler is hoping to see a similar performance from his side as they prepare to face Birmingham and West Midlands in the FAWNL Division One Midlands on Sunday.
The Belles are back in action at Oxford Street after last weekend’s narrow defeat to Wolves, and Butler believes his side are putting in a lot of hard work to try and find consistency in their performances.
“The games coming up don’t get any easier for us, we have second in the league at the weekend, but hopefully for us, we’re able to show the performance levels of last Sunday and see what we can do,” he said.
“Me and Nick have sat down and looked at what their strengths are and spoke to other people about them so we know what they’re capable of, but we focus on ourselves and work on our strengths.
“We know it’ll be another difficult task but we have to be able to show those levels of consistency, hopefully we can keep performing well week-in, week-out, and the girls have put in a lot of hard work over the past couple of weeks.”
After Sunday’s game with Birmingham and West Midlands, the Belles have a 48-hour turn-around before they travel to Lincoln City, and Butler is determined to ensure that everyone is ready for the games that are coming their way.
“We’ve always said if we can get the performance right then the result will come, and we’ve worked hard once again, the girls are always showing signs of improvement and a lot of the credit has to go to them,” he added.
“We’ll be asking the girls to follow what we’ve told them and I’m sure they will do just that, we have a big week coming up with another game on Tuesday so we’ll have to make sure the recovery is right too.
“We’ll sit down all together and make sure we go about things the right way, whether that’s myself and Nick from the playing side, or Luke in the medical side of things and making sure we’re all prepared and ready to go.”
Supporters planning to attend Sunday's game with Birmingham and West Midlands are urged to take reasonable precautions in line with Government and NHS advice around coronavirus, and anyone with symptoms as described here should refrain from attending.
