Jess Andrew believes Belles showed good character to beat Burton Albion 1-0 on the opening day of the 2021/22 season despite not being at their best.
It was a scrappy game in which Hannah McWilliams’ header from Andrew’s corner-kick delivery turned out to be the difference.
“A win is a win,” Andrew said.
“We made it hard for ourselves at points but I think we showed character to come back in the second half and put the goal away.”
Despite coming away with the points, Andrew believes there’s plenty for Belles to work on ahead of next week’s home match against Sporting Khalsa.
“There are still plenty of areas to work on and hopefully we’ll come back next week will be a bit better from the get-go,” she added.
“It could have been more comfortable but there are some good things we can take from it and things we can learn from so that is something we can build on in training so we can keep moving forward.
“We got the win, got the three points and now we can focus on the next game.”
Belles return home on Sunday when they face Sporting Khalsa at Oxford Street. Kick-off 2pm.
